ChangeServant, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

OPPOSE this bill if you want to be able to access legal marijuana close to home. It prohibits retail sales unless voters approve opening dispensaries in a referendum. Costly barrier!

JoAnne Norton writes:

This is a needless bill. Marijuana has been legalized in Virginia and this would curb its sale in certain juristicians.
