Virginia’s Liberal Agenda Takes Effect Today

A raft of new laws, including gun control and marijuana decriminalization, take effect today in Virginia — the work of the first Democrat-led legislature in more than two decades.

Democrats enacted hundreds of laws in this year’s General Assembly to address a wide swath issues such as allowing local governments to remove statues, expanding protections for the LGBTQ community, no longer requiring photo ID for voting and raising the age limit for purchasing tobacco products.
