A Vermont Senate committee plans to take testimony next week on proposals to legalize recreational marijuana in the state.

A hearing set for 10 a.m. Tuesday in Statehouse Room 10 is expected to elicit answers to a list of questions about how legalization would work.

Senator Jeanette White, a Windham County Democrat who chairs the Senate Government Operations Committee, says the panel is looking for suggestions on setting limits on the number of retail outlets for marijuana, as well as number of growers and other questions.

She says she's hoping to establish how legalization would work before lawmakers decide whether or not to go that route.
