Re: “A Food Writer Relearns How to Eat Sans Gallbladder

Thanks for your article-I've had gallstones for years but my body has announced it's time to get the gallbladder out! The description of your experience is helpful. I kind I would go right back to work after surgery-you helped me understand that I'm going to have to figure out how to take some time off! Thanks.

Re: “Kevin Pearce, Former Pro Snowboarder and TBI Survivor, Rises Again

Have you considered creating a program for brain injury yoga swim classes? I tried a swim class that ended up too vigours for me and I started having tremors that almost went into epliletic seizures. Thanks and peace.

Re: “A Food Writer Relearns How to Eat Sans Gallbladder

I actually googled gallbladder+thai food and found your article! Thank you! It was enlightening!

It's been a week for me and I'm ready to eat! I've been doing breakfast shakes and juicing between meals and then living on chicken noodle soup. I need real food and I need it soon! My first craving is for Pad Thai so I'm ordering in and hoping my body doesn't hate me for it!

Re: “Got Sleep Apnea? Try Playing a Didgeridoo

I can think of no better person to study didgeridoo with than PQ. His patience and sincerity totally match his proficiency on the instrument. A great way to get started on this funky stick!

Re: “A Montgomery Salt Cave Might Heal What Ails You

Going to the Salt Cave is such an experience! The owners are willing to talk to you about any of their items that they are selling and how to use them, what they are good for, and why you should be using them. The Detox room is great for those cold winter days, you sit in adjustable comfy chairs and put your hands and feet on the warm salt rocks. And OMG the cave itself; as soon as you walk in you can taste the salt on your lips and immediately I can breath deeper. It is a MUST experience. After the first time you go, you will be hooked! and telling all your friends!

Re: “Trying Yoga on for (Plus) Size

I love the "floating head." It wasn't until I practiced yoga and meditation that I could actually "feel" my legs. Great article!

Re: “A Montgomery Salt Cave Might Heal What Ails You

I love the Salt Cave. I have been twice. Trying to go every other week. My breathing is so much better and I sleep very well. The Khans are very nice people. I highly recommend.

Re: “Green State Gardener Plants Stake in Cannabis Market

Eli Harrington, keeping it classy as always. You're a true ambassador for this movement, it's kind of amazing you were treated with such disrespect here. Totally undeserved. Hopefully you'll get a proper apology from "Inept Spawn #1", and kudos to you for responding to that bullshit with an olive branch. I know I wouldn't have! It's unfortunate that some players on this stage have such big egos and such little self control... doesn't look good.

Re: “Green State Gardener Plants Stake in Cannabis Market

Wow, some pretty mean spirited comments on this article. I don't know anything about how this business was financed, just like the other commenters here, but I can say that almost all businesses start with funding from friends and family. If you want to hate on a trust funder, maybe pick one that spends all week at the mountain instead of someone trying to make a go at starting a local business. It seems that there is a blossoming market here, so hats off to some local entrepreneurs that are trying to make ago of it, particularly as the State drags its feet. If you think you could do a better job I would encourage you to open your own business and compete. Cream rises to the top.

Re: “Green State Gardener Plants Stake in Cannabis Market

Walsh, thank you for taking a few minutes to speak with me via phone.

Dylan and/or Kelsey, feel free to call me back directly and I'll tell you the same thing that I told Walsh and share my frustration--I'm the one who looks like an asshole here. It sucks that you all thought I'd be this petty, inept, and negative and trash your business in this manner. I've never solicited you for advertising and only ever used my outlets to write positive things about GSG (a year before everyone else). Clearly, we've got to have an honest face to face because we've all got more important, progressive, constructive things to do.

Now we've got an opportunity to reset, so maybe this childish bullshit is a blessing in disguise. and if anything, now we can erase any doubt about where we all stand.

Unlike this troll, I've got better things to do than pick a fight, and if I wanted to trash someone, I'd use one of my own independent media outlets and my own name, not the comment section.

To the imposter: next time at least toss in a link to Heady Vermont so we can at least get some pageviews out here, it's not easy to "compete" with seven days! And also, go fuck yourself you coward.

Elias (Eli) Roberts Harrington

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

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?
