Brief Timeline of Pot Legalization in VA and VA Hemp Project:
- March 10, 2021: Michelle Thomas forms the “Virginia Hemp Project, LLC”
- April 7, 2021: Virginia became the first Southern state to legalize marijuana. However, the amendments lawmakers agreed to on 4/7/21 would accelerate the timeline of legalization by about three years, well before retail sales would begin, a move that’s been cheered by racial justice advocates. I wonder if Thomas has a crystal ball. The VA Hemp Project was formed an entire month before this decision.
- April 29, 2021: LCPS holds town hall on the Legalization of Marijuana in Virginia
