Re: “House Defeats Senate Marijuana Legalization Bill

"Not the Vermont way?" Marijuana production is essentially agriculture. Legal agriculture supporting legal jobs and a taxable, regulated distribution system isn't the Vermont way? I'm thinking we should change our way.

All of this seems based on the notion that marijuana somehow doesn't already exist. But in fact we already have a large-scale commercial marijuana market. We just aren't in a position to regulate or tax it. I'm not seeing the wisdom.

Re: “House Panel May Write Its Own Marijuana Bill

I find this dithering absurd. Marijuana is for all intents and purposes already legal in this state. But since it's not technically legal it's served only by the black market; a market which by definition cannot be taxed or regulated. It takes a special kind of stupid to think that makes any sense.

Re: “Vermont's Gun Debate Grows Colorful

". . . a controversial bill establishing new restrictions on guns sold privately to felons and those who are mentally unfit."


It would seem hard to restrict sales to felons and the mentally unfit any further.

Unless I'm mistaken the proposed law would expand background checks.
