I was in Boston recently and saw a long line outside a store. My hosts said it was the legal marijuana retail outlet. Dozens of folks were lined up waiting to pay their money for the regulated pot. A portion of their sales goes into the Bay State coffers.

Here in Vermont, which has countless legal pot growers, we are missing an excellent opportunity to fill our coffers and offset the rising property taxes. Governor Scott, you promised to lower property taxes, something you haven't been able to do. Well, here's a way to do it. Wake up, please, and bring Ms. Mitzi along with you.
