Eric Davis: It makes sense to go slow on pot bill

Posted on April 14, 2016 |
By Eric Davis



The Vermont House Judiciary Committee has amended the Senate-passed bill legalizing the sale of small amounts of marijuana for recreational use with a new proposal taking a very different approach.

Instead of legalization, the House Judiciary proposal would expand marijuana education programs, set a standard for psychoactive substances in the blood for drivers, and establish a commission to do more research on marijuana policy issues.

Posted on April 14, 2016 |
By Winifred Thomas



The reporting on the situation at Porter Medical Center has raised a number of questions in my mind and I thought I might like to express them and see whether some answers might emerge.

I am one of Dr. Hodde’s many patients who will be in search of a new primary care doctor. Upon my first meeting with her I asked, as a 71-year-old, if I might expect that she would be able to “see me out,” so to speak. She indicated that she had no intention of going anywhere.
