Re: “Scott Issues Stay-at-Home Order as Coronavirus Spreads

Phil Scott may be a nice guy personally; however, as governor, he is a dork!

Re: “Vermont Lawmaker Looks to Expand Medical Marijuana Access

As a resident of Vermont for 29 years, i am disappointed by the fact that Vermont did not legalize cannabis In 03 I had a TIA. This caused my brain to shift into depression with occasional "happy" periods. It also accelerated my intolerance to grey days known as Seasonal Affect Disorder. I have been through every pharmaceutical wonder drug there is for depression/anxiety. My body rejected all of it. In March, I suffered spinal stenosis from having arthritic parts of my spine flare up and shoot pain down my leg. I was prescribed a non opiate muscle relaxant which made my mind dopey and didnothing for the pain in my leg and back. I am very disillusioned with the way Vermont has handled the medical cannabis issue, and, well, cannabis in general. I wrote to Dick Sears during the last house session. I asked to expand medicinal criteria as well as legalize for "recreation." I received no response. I am moving out of my home now, and I am going to Maine or Colorado. I am nearly 60 and do not feel at all comfortable meeting a dealer in a parking lot(for example) to obtain cannabis. Also, I have no idea what I am getting anyway. I have done so much for Vermont and Vermonters while I have lived here. Can't this state realize trustworthy people like me need cannabis to function? Meanwhile, the lottery(legalized gambling) is OK and rakes in all kinds of money for the state. I am not waiting anymore for legalization in VT to happen. Winter is coming and I am not going to sit here depressed and in pain any longer. Goodbye VT and hello to Maine or Colorado.
