Re: “Legal Pot Bill Clears Key Committee in Vermont House

Governor Scott is playing games with roadside safety.

His own traffic safety experts have given legislative testimony saying that setting a legal THC limit is a bad idea, and that the way to deal with drugged driving (an existing problem whether or not we legalize marijuana) is to train more police officers as Drug Recognition Experts (DRE's) and ARIDE-level experts. They said drugged driving is more than just a marijuana thing, and setting random THC limits won't help at all.

Gov. Scott is ignoring his own expert advisors, and in doing so he's making our roads less safe. That's downright shameful.

Re: “Vermont Lawmaker Looks to Expand Medical Marijuana Access

To fix the medical program we need: more dispensaries; ending the requirement of registering with one and only one dispensary; and de-linking dispensary registration and permission to grow (for both patient and dispensary). These things would bring prices down for patients, and make it easier to obtain the cannabis they need, but not as much as full legalization would. Even including taxes, cannabis in legal states is far cheaper than the no-tax prices at Vermont's dispensaries, with better availability, broader selection, and a greater variety of modalities to suit the needs of each individual, without the need to go through a (usually ignorant about cannabis) doctor as a gatekeeper to the system.
