Re: “Scott Vetoes Marijuana Legalization in Vermont

"The reality is that Vermonters do use marijuana and so legalization is not about increasing the use of marijuana. It's about legalizing something that has already gone on, where prohibition has not worked, and so I am in favor of legalization.

"I think there are three main advantages to legalization. First is that it actually will be easier to keep marijuana away from young people. Young people today can find marijuana much more easily than they can obtain alcohol and that's because it's not regulated. Second, when you're buying marijuana on the black market, you don't know what it is you're buying. You don't know the purity of it. You don't know the the power of it. If it's sold through licensed outlets, there will be regulation and buyers will know they'll get a safer product. And finally, it should be a source of revenue to the state. These transactions are going on and the state is getting no revenue at all. If it's legalized, there'll be more money into the coffers of the state for essential public services."
