  1. I’m surprised they weren’t released on their own recognizance and released with a citation to reappear for a court date!

  2. Two and half keys of someone else’s coke? This is a self-solving matter.

  3. The easiest business to run in Vermont is selling drugs. You don’t’ need a permit, You don’t need a license. You can operate in every town of Vermont without filling out a zoning permit. If you break the law, you rarely get arrested and if you do, they’ll let you go free.

    This is why we have so many drug dealers and overdosing.

    Now try and build a multi story apartment building in a small town, that’s not going to happen unless your are heavily connected.

    Try and build modest homes for people, that’s not going to happen either.

    Vermont here’s your sign, Montpelier loves drug dealers and hates modest homes.

    That’s why we’re homeless and addicted to drugs…..
