Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Tax-and-Regulate Goes Bust — for Now

Whats wrong Governor Lite spend too much time at the bake sale? The Bern Out fails to understand why any one voted for this sap.

Dude, you promised mad stacks for the treasury... but apparently the moron does not understand the nature of the job too busy rolling a fattie in the parking lot and stuffing his cheap suit full of free cookies from the snack room to herd the cats in the state house and close the deal.

Let's face it Zuckerman does nothing but blow smoke. Bernie Hustles the voters once again supporting the chump...

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Study Finds More Medical Weed = Fewer Opioids

Duh. Less pot = more death and alcohol.

Anyone that lived through the last major national pot droughts of 1990 & 1991 can tell you that.

The bars banked and many a good friends OD'd those years.

Pretty cynical... maybe he actually has evolved. Either way it should be celebrated as a win. Go Pot!

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Vermont Lawmakers Know the Value of Taxing Weed

It has been 50 years since marijuana use became popular back in the late 60s, it has taken that long for the powers that be figured out that it should be legal, how much longer before it is legal everywhere, besides reduced prison, court costs, states can benefit if taxed like everything else in this wonderful country that I have been born and raised in, when is the government going to be for the people? Along the way let us get smart about what everyone can benefit from even if you are against it.

Get rid of the land trusts and there will be a surplus of funds.
Why on earth are we subsidizing wealthy folks estates?
Wealthy folks who dont even live here full time?

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Vermont Lawmakers Know the Value of Taxing Weed

My thanks to Sasha Goldstein. Your use of the word "siphoned" is quite accurate. Now the question remains, where did the money get transferred to? Did DPS get the funds returned to fund unrelated expenses?

No one ever gave the Vermont legislature any credit for having brains. This isnt a heavy lift. You look what other states are doing. Our legislature is perfectly willing to tax the crap out of peoples incomes and property but to raise revenue this way is just too much for them.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Come July, Weed Is Legal in Vermont

I don't want to hear any complaints when there is increased drug abuse and drug related crimes. I am appalled at legalizing any marijuana. Your minds are going to be destroyed. Sheep!!

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: States Just Say No to Jeff Sessions

Any article that's illustrated by a picture of Kate McKinnon as Jeff Sessions gets a big thumbs up from me.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Despite Legalization, Colorado Teen Pot Use Declines

Haven't we learned not to believe the polls?

"State and federal surveys have declared that Colorado youths are not using marijuana more than before the drug became legal for adult recreational use in 2014, and that use among juveniles is actually dropping."

"Yet law-enforcement officers who interact with students each school day, and whose job it is to intervene and report on drug use by teens, offer a starkly different perspective."

https://www.denverpost.com/2017/12/22/poli…

I know many parents in Colorado. Word has it that Colorado drug profits are so enormous and the marijuana lobby so powerful, that surveys (i.e. polls) like these are biased and being used to convince the public that pot legalization isn't having a deleterious effect on Colorado youth. Law enforcement, however, and the parents I know, think otherwise.

Caveat emptor.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Despite Legalization, Colorado Teen Pot Use Declines

I visited a week training seminar in Colorado a short time ago. Small business developer, successful startup in home remodeling enterprise. He had some definite opinions on the effects of marijuana legalization. He said on several occasions how frustrating it was to try to hire workers. Most of the 20-30yr old population was motivated dto do only one thing - just hang out and get stoned. No motivation to work; just being stoned, or getting stoned. That point of view was echoed by other business people, restaurant owners I met. Even the AirBNB owner I stayed with was affected; his adult son was virtually glass-eyed and stoned every time I met him. The residence owner just shrugged his shoulders and said what can I do to motivate him? Nothing I try works.
