Re: “Scott Vetoes Marijuana Legalization in Vermont

I voted for Governor Scott, but I've lost a lot of respect for him after watching his handling of this bill. Why wait until hours before the bill would have been become law to weigh in with recommendations? That conversation could easily have happened a month or two ago. That's just plain mis-management.

The Governor's concern for safety is obviously important, but we've already been living with every one of those issues for some time and I haven't seen any initiative to address them before this bill came along. Is the Governor really saying that as long as people are driving while smoking pot illegally (as they do now) our kids and roads are safe, but once they can can do it legally we will suddenly be in danger? Based on the experiences of 8 other states, there is no data to support this.

Whether it's legal or not has little to do with whether we need to address safety concerns. But those two separate issues keep getting mixed up, as if they go together. They don't.
