Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Moldy Weed at CVD?

Inhaling smoke from moldy pot can cause pneumonia. Shane Lynn doesn't deny selling moldy pot to cancer patients and others; when confronted about it, he responds "well then, regulate me more!"

At least you know what you're going to get. In a store it won't be treated with poison.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Numbers Game

As usual VT. maintains their reputation for the highest tax state. Medical marijuana is already way more expensive than street pot. I'll go to Maine for a couple day vacation and buy my pot. Spend money on food and fun. Screw VT.

Vermont Medical Society voted against tax and regulate marijuana legalization, saying it will increase human suffering and state budgetary pressure

"Pay Attention: Distracted Driving Could Boost Your Insurance Rates By As Much As 41%"

"The insurance industry and regulators have to ensure any rate changes they make are justified, so even though cell phones aren't new to you and me, the risks and dangers they pose for drivers have only recently been substantiated and now distracted drivers are really seeing the effects on their premiums."
https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimgorzelany/…

While virtually everyone uses a cell phone, currently, only "... 16 percent of Vermonters smoked marijuana during the past year..."

Waiting to exhale...inevitably, law abiding citizens will, yet again, subsidize the irresponsible behavior of others.

Another 'new high'.

"Car insurance rates are likely to increase 4-6 percent in states with legal marijuana, a leading insurance industry actuary says."

What a 'rush'.....

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Will Weed Tourism Take Off in Vermont?

To be fair, it's hard to believe that there can be "tourism" when smoking/vaping/etc is still partially illegal. For whatever reason "Paraphernalia" is illegal and is punishable with a civil citation, therefore using cannabis is technically illegal.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Will Weed Tourism Take Off in Vermont?

If the only thing anyone here can think about is how much of a cash cow this can become for the oligarchy, then the state is still as ass backwards as ever. How about removing any and all prohibition because it was unlawful & in violation of the constitution to have one in the first place? Because it is immoral to the point of being criminal to deny people one of the most powerful natural medicines on the planet? How about getting rid of the cash cow of corruption where people are thrown into the prisons for profits system for fictitious crimes that never harmed anyone?

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Will Weed Tourism Take Off in Vermont?

It won't take off until it is legal at the retail level. With all the corruption etc It's almost amusing that
weed tourism is hitting rock bottom . With a huge assist from the trump administration,what a total
embarrassment.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Will Weed Tourism Take Off in Vermont?

Legal weed tourism is only a cash cow until it becomes legal in the rest of the country. Then it is just like selling beer.

Next thing you know Vermont will have Casino gambling and maybe legal prostitution, endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce and promoted as "jobs and economic prosperity".

Yeah, right. Keep digging, folks, we'll hit bottom eventually.

Re: Cannabis attracts everyone, from lawyers to truckers, ...

Sanity and redundancy aside, a stoned lawyer is one thing. But, speaking of green flow, the prospect of a sky pilot driving a 40 ton rig at 65 mph on I-89 is another, entirely. One would hope, not just yet.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Weed and Taxes

Yeah,VT doesn't need the extra revenue or jobs. Booze,cigarettes and Reefer Madness will lead us to prosperity
which has got to be right around the corner.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: What’s the Deal With Gifting?

Why legalize and tax Cannabis when VT needs all the money it can bring in ? Reefer Madness is still alive
and well in once progressive VT ! From the looks of many citizens,Cake should be banned before Cannabis !

Just stop blocking the will of the people! - The thugs who have hijacked our government have gone rogue. - We need to take corporate/wealthy campaign donations out of elections. - As the Progressives are doing.
