No its isnt "dumb" . Its needed. What is also needed in Vermont is for the law to allow the same ailments to get a card as all the other medical states. I have glucoma and am told "no" Evidently only debilitating ailments are valid. I consider impendin blindness ..debilitating myself. But if they want me to go blind and to cost the state more money with my long term care be it. And believe me Im going for life long

I am glad Vermont is considering dispensaries. My doctor suggested that I try medical marijuana and filled out the proper forms to get me 'legal'. That was six months ago! I do not dare to try it though as he told me that I would have to figure out how to get it on my own. That kind of freaked me out.
If I understand it correctly, it is legal to have and use it in the state of Vermont if your doctor prescribes it. However, you have to engage in illegal activity to buy it, because it is not legal to sell it. Additionally, if it happens to be a federal employee that catches you with it, you can be arrested. I understand that although it is legal in VT, it is illegal under federal law, so don't cross the border into Canada because I suspect if you are called out by border patrol, they could in theory arrest you.
The whole process is a bit much for me. I guess I will just wait until everyone is on the same page!
