Hey, Cannabis Fans: Take the 2018 Weeders Survey!

On July 1, the Green Mountain State will get even greener as recreational cannabis becomes legal. Finally, Vermonters can try that weed stuff we’ve heard so much about! (Wink, wink.)

We’re kidding, of course. Legality hasn’t proved much of an obstacle to cannabis consumption here in the past. Vermont has a long and well-deserved reputation for being, well, kind to kind bud. And while the impending legalization might ease the paranoia of a few stoners, locals have pretty much puffed with relative impunity in the dank Victorians of Burlington’s college ghetto, on the grassy expanses of music festivals or curled up on their couches in front of the TV.

We’ll go out on a limb and bet a good many of you reading this are high right now. It’s OK, we won’t narc you out — but we do have a few questions.

In 2015, we asked Seven Days readers to tell us all about their cannabis consumption in our first-ever Weeders Survey. While we need to stress that the survey was in no way scientific — we asked actor/stoner Seth Rogen to take it, for Chrissake — the results were nonetheless enlightening and entertaining. On the veritable eve of Vermont’s venture into legal recreational pot, we thought it a fine time to see what, if anything, has changed regarding Vermonters’ weed habits and attitudes.

We want to learn more about you, the cannabis consumer: when, why and how often you consume; with whom you’re inclined to indulge; how much you pay to partake; and what you love doing when you’re high. We’d also like to know where you get it and what you know — or don’t know — about the stuff you’re using and where and how it’s grown.

Paranoid about privacy? This survey is anonymous. Seven Days will not collect, publish or distribute to other parties any uniquely identifiable information about you. That said, we’re using third-party survey software. If you take this survey on the internet, we cannot make any guarantees about the privacy of your remarks. Those who are concerned about digital eavesdroppers knowing when and how you enjoy your green bud can fill out a paper survey instead, found inside Seven Days on May 9.

Deadline to submit: June 5, 2018

    The long-lasting toll of this nightmare year has yet to be assessed. The December 14 issue of Time magazine hyperbolically declared 2020 “the worst year ever.” And yet, the past nine months of pandemic life have included numerous examples of Vermonters banding together to overcome challenges, doing their best with available resources and finding a way forward.
