An influential doctors group is beefing up warnings about marijuana’s potential harms for teens amid increasingly lax laws and attitudes on pot use.
On May 3, 2016, the Vermont House of Representatives voted against legislative efforts for both legalization and decriminalization of marijuana in the state.
