Its been quite awhile since I've posted on this site since we do most of our posting on facebook. But, with things heating up so much lately, I thought I'd add a quick update here. H.150 still sits bottled up on House Judiciary. S. 226 is being debated in Senate Government Ops. Montpelier just passed a non-binding resolution by a LANDSLIDE... to urge the VT legislature to pass a decriminalization bill--H.150.
Let's not let this momentum die. Weigh in. Talk to your lawmakers. Don't know who they are? Check out VALID's website--we have a link to the state website where you can find out who they are! Call them and tell them how you feel. Make them engage with you. This is what democracy is all about. In a time where big banks, big insurance, big pharmaceuticals--and big corporations have all of this crazy power across the country, here in VT your voice MATTERS!
Write letters to the editor, call your lawmakers, talk to your friends--your colleagues, everyone who will listen... How about making a vow to say the word marijuana at least 3 times a day-- OUT LOUD--where someone can hear you!!? Let's work to de-stigmatize this issue... make people engage you on the FACTS--not the outdated, tired old arguments... Gateway-- hmm, not so much.. wrong message to kids... are you kidding me? If people are that worried about sending the wrong message to kids--how about putting down the cigs and the beer-- not to mention the LEGAL prescription drugs... ugh, don't get me started!
You have the power to change things. Make it happen. Get involved. Take a stand. Have a nice day. Oh yeah--- and my personal favorite--freedom isn't free:)
