Last week Vermont Senator David Zuckerman introduced a proposal -Senate Bill 306 - to legalize recreational cannabis. Under the proposed law, the possession up to 2 ounces of cannabis, and the cultivation of up to 3 plants, would be legal for those 21 and older. State-licensed retail outlets would be authorized to distribute cannabis, which would be taxed at $50 an ounce.

Just last year, Vermont lawmakers approved a measure – which was signed by the governor - to decriminalize up to an ounce of cannabis, and up to 5 grams of hashish; the proposal took effect July 1st of last year.

In September Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin said that he believes the nation is heading towards cannabis legalization, and wants his state to be “part of the conversation”.

When asked about Senate Bill 306, Shumlin’s office says that he’s likely to support it, as he would any legislation that legalizes, taxes and regulates cannabis.

“Marijuana is used all over the place. People still function in society,” says Senator David Zuckerman. If his proposal is approved into law, residents in the state can expect to see cannabis retail outlets in early 2015.

    FuckYa is an Indica grown mostly in Texas, with roots that can be traced back to Acapulco Gold and WTF? strains from Mexico. It is one of those Indicas that knocks you on your ass, so that most users can be heard exclaiming something like Fuck Yeah! or Fuckin’ A! — hence its moniker (usually followed by lots of exclamation points).

    The conflict is between statists of both political parties, and those few remaining Americans who love liberty.
