Marijuana Resolve is a Vermont based nonprofit organization. Our missionis to sponsor a public dialogue to bring about a reasonable and peaceful resolution to the marijuana and hemp conflict that has deprived us of our freedom and harmed responsible adult Americans far too long and to help dissolve the intransigent causes of our state and national drug policy discord.
Cannabem Liberemus – Peaceful Resolve Through Awareness and Choice
Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy and Kevin Sabet, a former drug expert in the Obama administration, recently criticized Vermont’s decriminalization bill which is winding through the Vermont legislature. VTDigger.org has the story:
“This legislation is misguided because it really sends the wrong message to folks and sends us down this path of legalization,” Sabet told VTDigger.
Kennedy and Sabet see marijuana use as an addiction, and worry about the children:
Kennedy said the country should learn from how the alcohol and tobacco industries have tried to lure kids to become addicted to these legal and regulated substances.
The Marijuana Resolve show featured as a guest a man known as America’s most written about marijuana smuggler, Robert Platshorn.
