Part 9 Federal Marijuana Laws - Where's The Roadside Drug Test?

PART 9 FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS - We know perfectly well that Governor Phil Scott wants a roadside marijuana safe driver test, and federal law backs him up. The problem is, that despite the intentions of the United States Congress to fund highway safety research and development, nothing has been accomplished satisfactorily yet, and this law, which is on the books, seems to have made an initial requirement way back when, calling upon the U.S. Congress to have a report by December 31, 1979. Then herein, we see another date of Dec. 4, 2015; and then what? Nothing? Well, Governor Phil Scott, this one is your call, and you can just call up U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy, and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and U.S. Congress Representative Peter Welch and ask them WTF?

Town of Brattleboro Job Opening E-Mail List

The Town of Brattleboro is asking for help from anyone and everyone who is interested in promoting increased diversity on the Town staff. In addition to proactively distributing all future job opening notices more widely than in the past, the Town will send those notices to any individual or group who wishes to receive them.

The goal of creating this “Job Openings Distribution List” is to help the Town achieve greater diversity in applicant pools. Participants are asked to forward Town job opening notices to their email lists or social media contacts, or to use other means by which to distribute those notices either broadly or to target audiences of their choosing. Each participating individual or group will decide for themselves when and to whom such job opening notices will be forwarded.

Part 7 Federal Marijuana Laws: Chemicals The Govt Approves To Spray Vermont to Kill Marijuana

PART 7 FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS "Prima facie", in the law, means that if you have a state offense for marijuana spelled with a j in the law, marihuana spelled with an h in the law, or cannabis, then that is OBVIOUS that you may have also violated federal law. How many Vermont State Senators and Vermont Representatives know that they may be setting you up for a federal prison term, by their little ol' Vermont slap on the hand statute?

Selectboard Meeting Notes - Diversity Discussion and Emergency Repairs

The Brattleboro Selectboard held an extensive discussion of diversity, both in Town hiring practices and the community at large. It was a start and step toward something probably positive, though the goals and steps to get there remain to be more fully developed.

Emergency repairs at the pool and the Harris parking lot were the other big items on the agenda, but the long diversity discussion made for quick summaries of these and other smaller matters due to a late hour.

Part 6 Federal Marijuana Laws - Is Not Knowing The Law A Form of "Entrapment"?

PART 6 FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS: 21 USC 960
Law Library of Congress
https://www.loc.gov/
http://uscode.house.gov/browse.xhtml
Is it "entrapment" if you are not fairly warned and informed of all the federal marijuana laws?

When I'm finished finding all of the federal marijuana laws, would it help put a dent in police "entrapment" of people who have not been fairly warned and informed of the existing federal laws, for the State of Vermont to publish a complete booklet of all marijuana laws, state and federal, and mail it out to every registered voter, and publish copies for all high school students, and give them a test on the subject before graduation? I'll bet none of the Vermont State Legislators, Senate and Representatives, could pass a complete test on the subject!

Part 5 Federal Marijuana Laws: Go To Federal Prison For Selling A Bong or Roach Clip

Hello again, here are some more federal marijuana laws, and this is a biggie: did you know that if U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions gets too excited down there in Washington, D.C. that he could send federal agents to Vermont to arrest people under federal law for selling bongs and roach clips?

I'm actually more worried about homeless people today.  A woman in one vehicle, and a boy by a truck,  stopped in front of my house. He was struggling to tie something around a heavy object in the back of the truck.  The woman said he was 12 years old and that she had other sons, and one was attending a local school for one month, and that was why they were "up here".
