Lawmaker cites “mistake” on legalizing marijuana two years ago - VPR

Buried in a story about a poll showing Vermonters’ growing support for legal cannabis is an influential legislator’s admission that the Vermont Legislature goofed when it approved legal possession of marijuana two years ago. The “problem” is that it didn’t regulate it enough.

"“There’s just a general interest of protecting Vermonters,” Gannon said. “I think that perhaps we made a mistake when we legalized cannabis a couple of years ago without providing any form of regulation, and I think people realized that."

    NPR poll shows more than 65% of Vermonters approve of tax and regulate of marijuana. Problem is more than half that number don’t intend to use and don’t have a clue. Growers have a 35% "spoilage rate from mold or other contaminants. Where do you think that product will end up? The ever thriving Black Market at a third of the price on the street. Legislators are smoking (or dabbing) their own dope!
