    Cannabis-related VT News Stories

    Not going to post a direct link, but there's a story on the VT digger website about a VT CBD hemp farm that just got a seven million dollar investment to expand operations. Pretty awesome shot of one of their fields from the sky.

      And, another story on the Vermont digger site, this time about former employees alleging there were serious mold issues at cultivation operations of one of the medical dispensaries in the Champlain Valley. Most of the story was about the lack of independent lab testing of medical marijuana in VT.

      Think they made a bit of an error though, article states the operation added humidifiers when I think it's clear they meant dehumidifiers. Not really sure how someone missed that.

        Wow! If They are growing/selling moldy pot to patients - Then They don't know what They are doing & shouldn't be in the business of supplying patients with cannabis products... I just read the story & it seems I recall reading on "Heady Vermont's Facebook" about problems at that dispensary - nothing official, just former patients complaining...

          I saw in the Rutland Herald this week - The Medical Dispensary in Brandon is booming & they are expanding to meet the needs of their patients (Especially in Chittenden County). The article stated they have increased production and have hired new workers in the process...

            yar, i concur.....ive sampled vt meds and felt bad for patients. then i tried NH meds and it was less impressive than vt.

            gossip and heresay, but ive not heard too much positive talk around the roots of vt medical, particuarly the one/ones involved in the beginning few years back...

            and how about that headyVT website eh? the information on there is ALMOST as good as leafly!! sarc/off

                I've been down, didn't care for their GG4, did like the Masterkush pretty well. Do yourself a favor and use the order ahead function if you can figure out what you want from their website (separate line which moves quickly). Keep in mind they're still limiting people to 1/8 of flower, and the grams I picked up (of the above mentioned) weren't very impressive.

                  Saw a report that the state senate is proposing a 10% tax on retail sales (with the potential for an additional 1% local option tax), but the governor wants a higher tax rate, so it sounds unlikely the senate version will come to be law.

                      I was there when Shane Lynn got his approval to start up the dispensary in Burlington ....now bear in mind guys I grew in the rainbow family in the northeast kingdom....going to crafsbury fiddlers contests and tumbridge worlds fair were the BEST for top shelf cultivars in VT, now things have changed soooo much it makes my head spin at times. I know for a fact the quality at the disp DOES NOT MEET THE PRICES ASKED. I think competition in this field is what's needed. Honestly I got really mad when I told one of the consultation folks...my popcorn flowers on my last harvest were more potent then what u just charged me 70 for.......it's depressing to not get good quality for hard earned money. I only grow my own now. Oldschool heads like me have seen lots and lots of change. I kinda miss massive amounts of Lebanese hash floating through our area! Man oh man think of all the hard narcotics that get sent between Montreal Boston and NYC.......too bad it wasn't just high end genetics and cultivars instead! Money can ruin folks moral compasses in my experience. I'd like to get a collective in Franklin / chittenden county going where those of us who have loved the varietal of cannabis for 10+years can get togehter, talk, share, learn etc etc etc......id love to do this! Def avoid guys who own skate shops in Burlington lmao who sell to minors!

                              Could be fun? Could be annoying.

                              A bit unclear to me what the legal status is on selling seeds in Vermont. From what I've seen of the legalization law, they're covered in the same way bud is, and therefore selling them (or gifting along with a sale of something else) is still illegal.

                              On the other hand, I could equally see that people might manage to get away with it as long as they're sold as "novelty items" and more importantly, that cops and prosecutors may have little interest in going after seeds as long as it's reasonably on the DL.

                              Burlington's a bit far for me.
