Va. May Study Benefits of Selling Marijuana at ABC Stores

Study will look at potential revenue benefits

Should Virginia-run liquor stores get into the marijuana business? At least one local lawmaker thinks the idea is worth exploring.

Delegate David Englin (D-45th) is calling for a study to look at the potential cost benefits of selling pot at Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control stores.

Englin said the government has been able to manage liquor sales. The same could be possible with marijuana, he said.

Liquor sales generate millions for the commonwealth.
