Commentary: Retail pot will help Middlebury prosper - Addison Independent

Middlebury voters should approve retail marijuana sales because it promotes “a more diverse commerce to the downtown,” the editor of the local paper argues.

“In a nutshell, here’s the issue: Vermont’s legislature passed a state law legalizing the sale of cannabis and its related products in retail stores statewide. The caveat was that each town or city would have the ability to accept or reject such retail sales by the vote of local residents. The case for the retail sale of cannabis in Middlebury is argued well by three downtown business owners in a story in the Nov. 26 edition of the paper. Essentially, they argue that it’s critical to draw more diverse commerce to the downtown and attract the critical mass needed to prosper. This particular merchandise also would add diversity that store owners say is desperately needed."
