  1. Great interview…..great focus on the families.

    Vermont has adopted big city social policies and we are getting the same results. We don’t have people in one neighborhood, where everybody can see the problem, instead Vermont’s families are broken across our state like a bad yard sale.

    There is a war going on WITH drugs. Chief Merkel….Meg Hansen…..great 5 minutes, we need much more discussion about this, because it’s costing Vermont and it’s families their very soul.

    Drugs are nobodies friend.

  2. Legalizing marijuana will worsen the opioid epidemic: “.. a new study, which uses the same methodology and data as the 2014 study that kicked off this line of research, found the trend has reversed: Medical marijuana is now correlated with more opioid overdose deaths. The new study, published in PNAS, found that medical marijuana was correlated with fewer opioid overdose deaths from 1999 to 2010. But using newer data up to 2017, the study found that states with medical marijuana laws actually saw more opioid overdose deaths.”
