Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

"Burlington Lt. Jim Trieb said that the officers were executing a sealed federal warrant."

Sealed Warrant??? That's quite interesting. Was this a Top Secret Operation? Dealing with "National Security"? Or are they trying to conceal the fact that the warrant is fictitious & they are operating under color of law, in contempt of their oath's of office? Maybe so-called journalists should be asking these questions.

If the shop owner can prove the warrant &/or process was improper, then charge all involved with interference in commerce, that's better than winning the Powerball.

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

If I were a store owner I would throw out my stack of seven days papers and never let you guys back in.

I guess all I can do as a stoney is to try and not give you any more page views instead

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

Property management and building owner knew for a year at least, it impacted other businesses in the building, and they knowingly turned a blind eye to keep the money coming in. Usually a building owner isn't going to be thrilled they have a disruptive and illegal business operating in broad daylight on their property. I love pot, but if my business isn't marijuana, it shouldn't smell like marijuana all day.

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

Agreeing with Oracle , especially the part about not shopping downtown much. The ATF isn't messing around. Use pot & you give up your right to own or purchase a firearm. Vermonters need to be making better choices.

It's to bad for all the people that are addicted to pot and all other drugs. I gave the Burlington police department a high 5 and to a high 10 to the police chef Brandon del pozo.

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

Remember when ALL the cannabis you used to have was illegal? I do. Why is everyone such a hater now? It's like you all lost your memories. Why the hell are people throwing this guy under the bus? You all going to rat out your ex-dealers now?

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

HEY! 7 Days....Maybe investigate all the lost tax revenue this state is missing out on under current cannabis policy...Revenue that could be put to use fighting the opioid crisis, improving the state infrastructure, or fixing the ever increasing property tax situation or the fact that our youth are leaving in droves....Or even how the current cannabis policy actually helps aid and abet the illegal sale of cannabis sativa, because we are allowed to posses it legally, but how does one obtain it legally? Sheesh. Take a lap Seven Days. There are WAY more important issues concerning this state.

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

In Mass, before store dispensaries were available, but as/after cannabis possession was made legal... People could legally sell to other people, provided they checked identification at the time of the sale. That went on for YEARS. Vermont will suffer itself with monstrous buildings blocking the sunset views for Sh!7 reasons (like the rich get new view condos, and everyone loves indoor malls *puke*) but it is honestly sad to see no legal avenue the people can move through to obtain a legalized plant product.

I thought "legal" meant more than loopholes and sting ops. That being said, GTG owner should not have been closing his legitimate glass shop in favor of starting a weed front. Who has my delivery service? I have my ID. State wants money? Allow sales & self reporting for tax income, at least until the state passes better infrastructure.

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

Wow. Well, the gun nuts didn't like it when he wrote about buying a semi-automatic rifle in a parking lot. I don't agree with him on everything, but you can't expect any other local news sources to do this kind of thing. To be fair, selling pot IS still illegal (though that'll change soon) and as far as I know, nobody's seeking oxys, meth, fentanyl, or heroin out of their storefront. Although I don't shop that much, so...

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

dzprod, I am all for legalization, however, to imply marijuana isn't a drug is just silly (and untrue).

Weinberger is too consumed by his erection to notice anything going on around him. It's kind of analogous. Figuring out marijuana sales will bring in more money than a giant building.

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

Ahh yes, he was "dealing drugs". What an absolutely disgraceful piece of so called journalism. I have lost all respect for Seven Days. A paper that used to be counter culture is now busting good people for selling a legal, mostly harmless plant. Hope you guys are proud of yourselves.

Re: “Cops Bust a Burlington Pot Shop That Hid in Plain Sight

I think that even though it's illegal, they should be using there time and focus on heroin dealers!
