    Commercializing marijuana will be a magnet for more homeless camps. Just ask district atty Troyer from Colorado who gave testimony to the Vermont legislature last year and was summarily dismissed by the Vermont committee as someone who was getting in the way of Vermonts “progressive” agenda. The majority in Montpelier are going to expand homelessness in a town near you through enacting commercialization of THC products this session. Only massive revolt by citizens calling out their reps/senators will have an effect. Vote all of them out of office for betraying our public safety and trust!
