Re: “Green State Gardener Plants Stake in Cannabis Market

Eli Harrington/8th Generation, I'm sorry that you're still upset that we remain uninterested in advertising on your Heady Vermont blog. Instead of returning your aspersions in the comment section here I'd like to invite you to come down to the Green State Gardener retail store at 388 Pine St where we can discuss your frustrations with the industry and all things cannabis in person. We're open from 10-6.

One Love,
Inept Spawn #1

Re: “Green State Gardener Plants Stake in Cannabis Market

We are glad to have our product available for purchase in the Burlington area at Green State Gardener and at more stores soon! The article incorrectly describes our capsules as intended for sublingual use. While this is possible, it is certainly not the way we intended the capsules to be taken. Please visit our website or email us at with any questions.

Re: “Green State Gardener Plants Stake in Cannabis Market

Hey! Look! Another paid-for fluff piece by Will Raap for his inept spawn and crackhead Walsh.

Sorry--but actual growers don't buy Chinese-made crap from ivory tower businesses.

This group of entitled trust-funders know jack about any aspect of Cannabis and deserve every moment of their business' death rattle.

Seven Days should be embarrassed to be so obviously shilling and ignoring the many actual hard-working individuals in Vermont that ARE making a difference and not just primping and preening and expecting a free ride.

Re: “Green State Gardener Plants Stake in Cannabis Market

You guys are too much. Can't grow your own CBD because you aren't growers so you get deep pockets daddy to pay for a partnership with real cultivators to break into the CBD market. Money can't buy you love or street cred but it can buy just about anything else. Your store is a schizophrenic joke of a business. Are you a grow store? Are you a brew store? Are you a bar? Are you a Pharmacy? No wait we sell solar panels!! WTF? Like Citizen said Vermont is way behind the curve on anything to do with mainstream cannabis. Maybe you will end up being that "guy in sweat pants"selling hydro equipment in a van down by the river. Karma is a bitch yo.

Re: “Green State Gardener Plants Stake in Cannabis Market

Once again Vermont is behind the eight ball on the weed train. Two other New England state will have legal weed by the end of month so why would investors put their money into Vermont where it could take years to see a return on their investment when they could invest in Maine and Massachusetts and see returns in a matter of weeks. Vermont should have made weed legal 2 years ago and beat the other states to the punch. I guess Vermonters are not as liberal or not as fiscally smart as some like to think they are. Good luck selling your dirt folks.

Re: “Former Pharmacist Gives Medical Marijuana Users a Way to Grow

Marcoux is wrong to believe operating a service at profit constitutes "taking advantage. First, he is filling a need, a need existing because of needs by patients. Second, its a voluntary relationship. If his service was harmful, patients may choose not to shop there. Imagine the massive absence of services had service providers been forced to operate at a loss.

Re: “Feds Crack Down on Long-Ignored ADA Violations; Vermont Businesses Pick Up Tab

Strange things do happen - now the US Attorney for the District of Vermont, the US Department of Justice, the US Department of Justice's ADA, the U.S. Access Board and even the Vermont Human Rights Commission have all refused to take many pro-active steps to enforce the Americans With Disabilities Act "ADA" and the Architectural Barriers Act "ABA".

Even other agencies that have enforcement powers/duties have been "looking the other way". For example Phil Scott on his website "Wheels for Warmth" says he has been doing this for 11 years yet according to the VT Secretary of State's website he and his partner only "registered" as mandated by the VT General Business Law in 2013. We have asked him to prove payment of the sales tax that he should have collected and remitted to the VT tax dept but he has refused to do so. Only a corporation (not a d/b/a partnership) can qualify as a charity (501c) entity.

People like myself were precluded due to the failure to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act by not having van accessible as well as regular handicapped spaces which are required by the ADA. See:

So why then is Phil Scott, Wheels for Warmth, and many other businesses and not-for-profits permitted to openly violate federal and state laws?

Re: “Can "Niches in Inpatient Psychiatry" Redeem the Brattleboro Retreat?

I have spent three periods in the LGBT unit and as a "friendly" at that -- also welcome in the unit, straight but not narrow. I have to say the place saved my life and I was a difficult patient when I came in, subject to "one-on-one" surveillance at first. The unit staff is remarkable and the day crew has had very little turnover.

Re: “When Should Parents Start Discussing Sex with Their Kids?

Cindy, love your realistic approach. I was a child of the 50's, which some folks imagine as being a time of innocence and purity. What a bunch of bull-dicky. We didn't have the internet but there were books and magazines and our own curiosity. What is it that causes sexual amnesia when people become parents? We are born sexual creatures. How we direct that energy has a lot to do with the kind of person we become.

Nice discussion ! I loved the information . Does someone know where my business would be able to find a blank TN DoR SLS 450 document to work with ?

Re: “A Burlington Teacher Unveils the Secrets of Snake-Style Tai Chi

Dear Ms. Tuff Dunn,

I invite you finish what you started in your article: come to NYC to the school of Sifu H. Won Gim and see for yourself the difference between our system and everything else (including pretenders like Boyd).

That is, of course, if you are looking for investigative journalism and not just to promote local businesses.

Quite an accomplished long distance runner, or so sayeth the interwebs. (Collegiate All American isn't too shabby. I'd choose that over being able to touch my toes any day!)

Re: “A Yoga Enthusiast Turns Competitor

It seems as though the negative commenter above has missed the entire point of the article, and revealed information NOT mentioned in the article, and thus exposed his identity.
"How can a woman..." Says Mike4653 continuing the shameful and despicable trend of men judging women for choices they can not possibly relate to.
Here are a few things nearly all of us benefit from and enjoy despite its founder's lack or moral integrity; iPhones, Disney movies, industrial textiles, America Democracy.

Re: “A Yoga Enthusiast Turns Competitor

This article is a misrepresentation. It's seems to me that tapna yoga trained and supported Maria's career. Then she decides to open up a studio with a name who has been in the news for years. How can a woman today support a name who has been found guilty of multiple issues. Read the news. It seems to me that mrs. Lyons made the right choice. She seems honest has run a respectful business in Burlington for years. It's a shame that her hard work and dedication leads to a article praising someone who supports sexual predators. Marla should be ashamed and the author should be too. Praise people who do good things for Burlington and the residents. Don't praise someone who supports a guy who is a predator.
