VA State Sen. Aaron Rouse’s Legislation Creating a Retail Marijuana Market in Virginia passes House, Senate, Heads to Governor’s Desk


28 February 2024 – Today, the Virginia House and Senate passed Senator Aaron Rouse’s legislation, which legalizes retail marijuana sales in Virginia beginning May 1, 2025.

In response to the passage of the legislation in the House and Senate, Senator Rouse made the following statement:

“Today, the Virginia House and Senate passed the legislation I carried with the support of a broad coalition of stakeholders from across the Commonwealth to create an equitable, legal marijuana retail market in Virginia.”

“As House Republican Leader Todd Gilbert told the Washington Post, “This is one of the most monumental pieces of legislation that we’ve ever had before us.”

“Fully legalizing marijuana and creating an equitable retail market in Virginia is a major step forward for justice in our Commonwealth. This would not have been possible without justice advocates across Virginia who have been putting in the work on this issue for years. I also want to thank President Pro Temp Lucas, Senators Ebbin, McPike, and Favola, and Delegate Krizek for their years of hard work on real marijuana justice in Virginia and for helping to get this bill to the Governor’s desk.”

“Governor Youngkin: the ball is in your court.”
