Vermont Marijuana Citation Data

Evan Anderson filed this request with the Vermont Judicial Bureau of Vermont.


From: Evan Anderson

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Vermont public records law (1 V.S.A. §§ 315-320), I hereby request the following records:

A copy of all data related to citations for marijuana possession in the state of Vermont on the state and local levels. I am specifically seeking records from January 2011 to the date that this request is processed. In addition, I am requesting a copy of any and all reports or studies generated by the state that discuss marijuana citations.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
