For hundreds of years Vermont has had many things to be proud of,from it's strong work ethic to protecting our environment. Now we have obtained a label that has no pride in it whatsoever. Vermont now leads the entire nation in the number of teens and young adults using and hooked on drugs.

     Our legislators choose to ignore this blight and want to enhance this present image with the commercial sale of marijuana. Every legislator in favor has to be so proud.

     The imagined mediocre monetary gain has blinded them to the serious consequences of their actions. They care nothing for the negative health and safety concerns that will occur. The state has a serious alcohol while driving issue, and they want to increase and add to the problem.
