It was a joyous day for Vermont residents on Monday.

The state has now legalized marijuana allowing adults 21 and over to possess and grow the drug.

Vermont is now the ninth state to legalize the plant after Governor Phil Scott, Republican, signed a legalization bill on Monday.

Vermont is now the first state to ever legalize the drug through legislature rather than a ballot initiative.

Adults 21 and over are allowed to possess up to an ounce of marijuana and up to two mature and four immature cannabis plants.

The law, which will take effect in July, does not however legalize recreational marijuana sales.
