Re: “Caution Urged as Vermont House Panel Weighs Pot Legalization

If you don't agree that pot should be legalized then YOU agree we are better off keeping it in the hands of criminals. Alcohol prohibition stopped because of the lawlessness it created, only to turn around and try it with drugs. The same result. More crime, more guns, death, disrupted lives.

Ask our youth what is easier to obtain, controlled alcohol or ANY drug.

Re: “New Vermont House Bill Would Legalize, Tax Marijuana Sales

my thought would be to tax product the same as alcohol or even a reduced rate to reflect fewer negative repercussions. I have seen in other states the assessment of a severe sales tax. Should that be the route, the underground market will continue function and flourish

Re: “Burlington's Top Cop, Brandon del Pozo, Aims to Rewrite Policing

How about putting those repeat offenders on the clean up detail in Burlington Square. Don't pay a fine or incarcerate, take their boredom away with a job in public

Re: “Smoked: Why the Pot Legalization Bill Failed

If the issue is about the kids and keeping it away from them, why is it that if you wanted to find some pot you would ask a kid. Where do these folks live??? Kids have anything they want, anytime. Are these the same people that don't lock their liquor cabinet at home so the kids have access anytime? You want to do something for society, sell alcohol at the drug store, by prescription only.

Re: “Ethics Schmethics: The Slow Death of Reform in the Vermont Senate

They don't have trouble making laws that send someone to jail for a joint. Guess they are turning a blind eye to what they see in the mirror. When has writing rules to govern yourself worked?

Re: “Sanders Shifts Focus to ‘Progressive’ Platform After Four Losses and a Win

Again we have a great candidate with great ideas. Whether Bernie wins or not is not the issue. The issue is for the rest of us to continue on with that message. He had a lot of guts and took a lot of heat till the country realized he was not alone. His message resonated with most of us because he was fighting for us. If we go back to facebooking and forgetting the message that is out there we have only ourselves to blame.

Re: “How Can Farm-to-Table Restaurants Survive?

If you price so there is no margin for error, you're awaiting the one disaster that takes you out. If you are producing good honest faire, are willing to stand behind it, charge for it. If folks aren't willing to pay then let them go to mcdonalds while you serve those that appreciate good food not just cheap food. When you price properly you give your patrons the opportunity to come back tomorrow. Being one step from gone means tomorrow I may have to find another place to eat, not a choice your loyal customers want to make. Cheaper is better is not the answer for consumers unless they agree that that is the way they want their paycheck viewed.
