News & Information


Special Vermont Legislature Session June 21, 2017 To Vote Yes Or No To Over-Ride Veto Of Recreational Marijuana Law

Other news wrongly reported that the bill is dead. It is not dead. It is waiting upon the Vermont State Legislature to decide whether or not to over-ride Governor Phil Scott's veto of the recreational marijuana bill. 

I called the Vermont State Legislature 1-802-828-2228 and my question was directed to the Senate Secretary who stated that the June 21 sesson is a session where the legislators vote to over-ride a veto, and that s.22 recreational marijuana is on the list to vote on that day. Don't listen to fake news, no matter how important they tell you they are. Do your own research and make your own phone calls.

Part 2, Federal Marijuana Laws for Governor Phil Scott To Consider This Morning Before His Big Decision To Ignore, Sign or Veto The Marijuana Bill On His Desk!

Today we start off with Title 18 Criminal laws: explosives & marijuana; prisons & marijuana; and then Title 19 international treaties & marijuana. Please keep in mind that changing state marijuana laws does NOT change federal laws which are spelled three different ways in the federal laws: marijuana, marihuana and cannabis.

Previously, in Part 1, we looked at food stamps & marijuana, federal forest land & marijuana, federal immigration laws & marijuana, and U.S. Military law & marijuana.

Part 1: Federal Marijuana Laws "Trump" State Marijuana Laws, So It Is Time To Learn Federal Pot Laws!

FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS which pre-empt, or "trump" state laws; PART 1.

I want to copy all of the federal marijuana laws and post them, but it is getting rather long, so I will just post what I have so far; and there are a lot more, but rather than you getting bored, just read this much so far, O.K.?

The laws I have copied and pasted here, so far, include laws regarding people who receive foods stamps, people in the U.S. Military, and people who enjoy our national parks. If that's you, you need to know about federal marijuana laws!

How Police In Australia Test Drivers For Marijuana!

How police in Australia test drivers for marijuana!  I saw this in a movie.  I get some really great DVD's at yard sales in the summer.  I just can't wait for yard sale season to start again!   O.K., I don't recall the name of the movie, and I'd have to dig through boxes to find it, but basically it goes like this, sort of:

Two Australian Police Officers at a roadside traffic stop, cleary marked for a driver survey, so cars politely slow down.  When a car comes to a stop, directed by an officer helping to stop cars, the other officer goes to the window (was it on the wrong side of the car?  I can't recall, this was a movie, do they drive on the wrong side in Australia?)
