Senate moves ahead on marijuana legalization

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Elizabeth Hewitt of VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — As a marijuana legalization bill idles in a House committee, senators are planning to force the issue forward themselves.

A proposal to create a tax-and-regulate legal marijuana system is poised to come up for a vote this Friday in the Senate.

The language, which will be offered as an amendment on a House-passed bill related to drug possession penalties, is one of two last-minute measures senators are planning to put forward after legalization measures stalled in the House.

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Dave Kelley



While the Vermont Legislature has been grappling with Vermont’s shrinking student enrollment with heavy-handed mandates like Act 46, which in some school districts will do more harm than good, the Campaign for Vermont has put a more creative and more promising proposal on the table.

Letter to the editor: New DMV rules an entire 'power grab'

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Prem Prakash

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Cheryl Mitchell



Our young granddaughter was here for part of lambing season this year. She wondered why we had to do chores so often. In the summer, we just tend the sheep once a day. This time of year, we may be checking every few hours. But she was game to try (usually) and we settled into a nice routine of checking on lambs, refilling water buckets, and offering hay and grain.
