Burlington, Vermont to Vote on Legalizing Pot

Voters in the Vermont city of Burlington will be asked in November whether they would support legalizing and taxing marijuana.

The Burlington City Council on Monday approved several measures for the November ballot, including the pot question.

WCAX-TV reports that voters also will be asked whether they support a $9 million bond to help boost the city's credit rating and a half-cent increase in the property tax to help pay for rehabilitating the bike path.
