Re: “Key Senate Committee Passes Marijuana Legalization Bill

Nice to see law enforcement squeezing their actual reason for opposing legalization in there. Why isn't any of the tax revenue being used for foundational education? Funneling all the money that will be generated by the legalization into law enforcement is foolish, since I'm sure the federal government will legalize it across the board at some point in the future, leaving VT struggling to find yet a new revenue source to support law enforcement. I'm in support of a portion of the proceeds going to law enforcement, but the vast majority should go towards improving the education of of young Vermonters.

Re: “Buyer Would Restrict Public Access Along the Bolton Potholes

I'm sure his repair bills for anything obstructing access will be continuous. My guess is that obstructing access is likely a point of leverage to pressure the town, or State to purchase the land, when after several years of restricting access he will claim some grievance about the cost of those repairs and how the town or State should pay for them or buy the land from him....
