Editor’s note: The prescription-drug legislation was S.216 in the 2015-2016 biennium. According to Fran Janik, the original letter writer and a medical-marijuana activist, the language of this session’s S.216, which amends the state’s medical marijuana laws, it is not at all clear whether the legislation will threatens to reduce the number of immature plants. “I am hearing several stories about the possible amendments or not,” Janik said on March 12. “Right now it is a mystery.” The marijuana bill has crossed over for consideration by the Vermont House of Representatives; visit legislature.vermont.gov/bill/status/2018/S.216 for continuing updates.
