"Little harmony here Dave Graham with the head wear that be said online we have a special guest also we have stocked ray of the chief investment officer managing director of Graham capital wealth management that's Graham capital wealth dot com good morning dare morning guys morning well how did the week week rule who the week wrap up Stosch tomorrow we'd go over all of the month the start of the month of February and ended the the first week of February coming to a close has been fairly good even though we did get some weakness towards the end of the week we had a job support come out early on Friday morning that provide a strong headline number however if you look further into the report a did give the market agree a pause that's why you saw some degree selling pressure early on Friday but I think more importantly you saw interest rates fall especially the ten year very materially in so when you look at this it's interesting because one would say okay wait a minute we have a good job support stock market should be higher interest rates should go up but you're actually seeing again interest rates right which I think is the bigger story even more so than the equity markets is actually the interest rates falling and again I think some of this is due to the fact when you actually look at the jobs report a lot of the jobs created we had over two hundred thousand jobs created for months January to June twenty five to be exact most of it was in construction in leisure and hospitality.

while on burn or is it going to get things back at Woodstock in like seventy one well of the fertilizer that we use at ABC is a combination of humic acid in full the cast humic acid I guess in the simplest form is a way to treat both clay and sandy soils that we have here in Florida and help to improve the soil so that it readily exception uses the nutrients that are becomes available in the soil so that the plants can uptake so so the so so that the acid that you're seeing is not gonna burn your hand or burn a your plants in any way shape or form so feel free to apply it Axel now great

"The news and you know great example that often the point to use my book is that you know the notion about <hes> ask people how many news stories have you read about the efficacy of the use of enhanced interrogation tactics torture <hes> and you you know the extent how many scenes have they seen in entertainment media torture and if you look at the entertainment media tortuous tends to work at least on the bad bad guys and if you talk to people who actually are military individuals intelligence in individuals who do that. They'll tell you now that that's not the tactic that you need. Did you use to really get information out. <hes> you know there's there's a whole host of things out there and entertainment media environment that are different inning. Go back to talk about guns that notion that <hes> if you if you look it's interesting because the gun industry gun people say well you know the problem is entertainment retainment media <hes> that it really promotes violence but you know you know entertainment. Media is a long running at for how great guns are because you know. How do you stop a bad guy with a gun in entertainment media. It's a good guy with a gun. That doesn't fit the reality. Well sorry on on that note some collars right one of the last times i hosted the dave graham show i got completely called out by a couple of listeners who <hes> took exception adoption to the fact that i had a guest on who <hes> had one of the most popular blogs in the world <hes> about star trek and they wanted to know y i would allow such blather on <hes> such a prestigious show <hes> that was about talk radio about public affairs and <hes> <hes> my rebuttal was that there are probably more people who are influenced by entertainment than there are people who are actually influenced by. I politics because they're being entertained. They're not being talked to about the points of arguments and such and <hes> <hes> and just want to get your thoughts on that because my defensive it did not fly with the collars. They thought it was a waste of time. <hes> i've got one of the top political scientists sitting in the studio with me today <hes> who can say that's that's probably not true. Yeah i would definitely say so if you think about <hes> <hes> how you consume <hes> fictional entertainment and stories stories compared to how you consume in a person's attempt to persuade you through logic and reason <hes> it psychologists have shown us that our minds operating completely the different fashion and <hes> when we are transported.

Well, it's a treat in a very timely time to be talking with you as a senior naturalist, because now that the weather's actually semi decent out there folks are getting out. Into the woods or at least I am. I'll share with this Jacob on Saturday. My summer. Exercise project is to I burn my own firewood and I live on a patch of overgrown, pasture. That's got. Plenty of trees on it and on Saturday. I went out and cut and split and stacked about a half a quarter would and along the way, I got chewed up by so many blackflies our surprised. I wasn't just dotted from tip to toe with them. But, you know, there is that, that fine. There's like maybe three or four days out there, where the weather starts to go. Good. And then you just get overwhelmed by insects out in the woods. The brutal right? You get you've been waiting for warm up, apparently of the flies, and so you get out there and then. That's that's project. That's a lot of would overcome pasture has a lot of cool, different species diversity, you are absolutely right about that and ridge. I mean it started being overgrown about, I guess, eighty or ninety years ago is when they stopped farming it and they just kinda let things grow up through there. So there's total mix of softwoods, and in hardwoods, lots of poplar, and we tried to log that off. But, you know, when you cut poplar. When you cut one of them, seven shoot start growing back out of the ground almost immediately. So you got to cut him like seven times, or, or at the right time of year to actually keep that stuff from going back. Exactly. It's a real tree, which is great, if it gets turned up bring in wildlife, but if you're trying to move that forest, two different species composition, it could definitely definitely be a little bit challenging. But yeah, I mean, I think that, that pattern rate, there was some land, people were using it. They're fairly focused right there, containing it, or manage it and did they stepped away. I think that's really common all over months, then all over the northeast. And so that's it's one of the challenges that it's also exciting opportunity, you have when we get to think about land management, or studying sneeze or figuring all that stuff out because a lot of people just kind of walked away from the land now. We're, we're walking into the room. And, you know, a lot of it has been intentionally diverse focused responsibly sustainably managed, but in a lot also nobody was really thinking. For a while. Right. And right. It they call it land-management. But sometimes no management is, is what happens. And like what I saw on in many stretches of the property that I live on is that everything is very close together. So all of the plants have to grow straight up in order to get any sunlight at all. And so what you find is a lot of top heavy trees with not a lot of girth on the outside. You know, like when I when I'm driving down route one hundred and you go through stow, there's this farm out there and you've got these trees, and they're separated far enough from all the other trees, so that they get sunlight from the first thing in the morning until the sunsets at night, and you can tell because it's a big crown on top, and there's leaves all around the tree and the and the, the trunks are big thick and healthy and hardy and a lot of the stuff that I have is very tall and in spindly and skinny and the. Trees, that after they get about thirty years older. So you know, they kind of soften about twelve feet up and break off. Right. And so that's I think that's a lot of that. A lot of the challenges or some of the different elements with growing trees. Because when we think about an orchard, or if we think about a Christmas tree farm, the trees are really far apart. It's a great place to go strolling with your family loss, graph somebody who's the MO that Grasso, it like somebody has to make sure that the Arno trees coming up between the apple cheese orchard. There are no extra teeth coming up between the trees in that Christmas reform. And even there, mowing, Goldenrod and the graph becomes a competes with the trees, then you go into the forest and the trees. They're dropping so many fees, and it really is competition racing for the sunlight. And sometimes, I mean, if you're looking to sell the near would right or they're looking to sell really high grade pine nets having that closed. Canopy forest can be great because you're gonna get tall straight trees with very few branches down low, but then other times it's hard. Because those trees are all competing with each other. And when you when you walk through a big old mature forest, the distance from tree trunk to trunk is that, you know, I mean you could have fifty sixty feet or more sometimes between some of these big Treasa like I've been in old oak groves, or you know stands. It's just it's mind boggling, and if you kinda go back in time, and you mind and you think about that. There was an oak here in Oakland over there. What just felt like a field or even like a savannah. You know, just a couple of trees out at around. So it's, it's definitely different. But then I mean, once again, that challenges the opportunity, all those broken snags are going to be great for wildlife. They're gonna bring him out birds, maybe some nice mammals. And so one of the big things that I like to talk with my students about, like my classes about is what, what do you want? What are your goals? What are you going for? Are you trying to? While this area. Recreation this for animal lots of times, people say, oh, I just wanted to be natural just wanna leave it to nature. But if you go back in time, people were the last ones to influence what was there and says, Santa when it's natural. At think it's kinda like if you broke your arm, and then you went to the doctor and you still told the doctor I just wanna leave it. Let's let it heal match really because the documents will, but it wasn't broken before heal naturally. We came the situation and it will take care of itself. And that's with, with our forests land management. But sometimes that, that choice like you said that strategy of non nominations is just a choice or strategy to manage to continue the way things work. And so that definitely will have a direction project. Absolutely. And, and without managing. I mean trees that follow ver a lot of times the you can find a stretch of. Forest that is just dotted with, with broken trees all over the place. And so it kind of makes it hard for, for trails or for for wildlife pass to, to be created through through certain parts of the forest and, and a little bit of management and it definitely as you point out makes it not only better possibly for the trees. But, but better for some of the wildlife that you may like to see wandering through the area. At some point. Yeah. One of the one of the to Vermont that unique in it's wonderful. We have immense then stands of able sugar maple maple syrup trees. We got the Sugarbush is a lot of people call them different things. But we're manage. Hardwood, forests not for lumber. And so I don't see that a lot of other places in what you have peoples are in their multiple times of year working, and they need to bring an equipment, they need to get to through the need to get the lines through into as result, they are, they're keeping the forest pretty clean, and from, from one perspective, maybe that's challenging, because there's not as much dead or down would right?.

"The. Radio vermont. It's the Dave Graham show on WD. It's your show about the people places and the issues that matter the most to you now, here's your host, Dave Graham. Good morning Remond. It is not Dave Graham. Unfortunately, Dave is looking like he'll be out for another couple of weeks. But Steve got some fine hosts filling in this week and me today calling mind the managing editor of ET digger. We've got a pretty jam packed show lined up today. We've got media center of the department of environmental conservation talking about the latest up in lake Carmi after that we've got Representative Peter Welch who's gonna come on to talk about a number of things. He's gonna talk about the latest in the Muller report. He's on the house intelligence committee, which is very much involved in that situation. He's also working on some transportation legislation as well as some legislation terrain in prescription drug prices, John Greg of the valley news is going to come on. He's gonna talk about an event over the weekend where Trump's soul GOP challenger for the presidential prime. Mary was in white river junction, we're gonna have a couple of UVM. Researchers to talk about some really interesting work that they've been doing around artifice intelligence and using some new technology to detect depression in children for the last half hour. We're going to talk to Eric Davis of Middlebury college. He's a political science. Professor a close statehouse watcher. And we're gonna talk about what might be the last week in the legislature, although per usual, they could extend it by a few days or more depending on what they wanna do. But to start things off Michel center of the department of environmental conservation. Good morning media. Hello. Thanks so much for coming on. Hi, how are you? Good. So you're an environmental analyst with lakes ponds program. And we got an interesting news release. It'd be digger last week. You guys are getting ready to roll out a long waited some interesting ideas for how to clean up lake Carmi. Maybe you could just start by talking about the situation up there. And why it sort of become a focus of environmental, folks. Yes. Oh, currently lake Carmi of enlisted as an impaired water body under the water quality standards for phosphorus. And so as a part of this impairment due to excess nutrients in the system the past several years, there've been some increasing concerns oversight on bacteria. Blooms those blooms are known to potentially be talked times. So several years ago. There was a summer that was particularly bad where there's a lot of public concern over something needs to be done. So what's resulted in that? At is a holistic approach of looking at the watershed, what can be done in the watershed to address nutrients running into lake Carmi as well as what can be done in the lake temporarily to address these silent bacteria blooms, can you talk a bit about what nutrients means, you know, I think oftentimes people being about that, you know, making sure that you have the right vitamins in your food, and that kind of thing that's not really what we're talking about here. Yes. What we're talking about is phosphorus. So this is a an element that is naturally occurring. And when it's an excess amount plants an algae within lake Carmi take advantage of that excess amount of nutrients, and because of that their populations can sometimes get to undesirable levels, and with bacteria in particular. There are species of sound bacteria. That do produce toxins. Sure. And I know there's some debate as to whether the sort of excess phosphorus, you know, what's driving that. There's farm surrounding the lake there's a number of people who live on the lake so a bit of, you know, visitor versus farmer debate as to sort of what's driving it. But nonetheless, there's an interesting idea up there for how to start getting some of it out, and it's going to use an air Reiter, which I believe is going to be installed sometime in the next few weeks. How's that going to work? Yes. The goal is to have the the holy irrigation system operational

"You're on the Dave Graham show. Good morning. I. For the life of me. I just don't understand the thought process be twin behind we've always had the national guard here. And why shouldn't we keep having it here while I shouldn't say here Williamstown up there in Burlington? And over those years, we we're in the national guard came to Burlington initially, and now military equipment has changed considerably. And the Burlington and self Burlington area have changed considerably to and to be quite honest, looking at this from the outside if they were trying to station those aircraft there as new aircraft as not having pre existed. There's no way they would get him in. And I think it's about time that people look around and say, maybe this isn't the best situation for either. So Burlington Burlington or the military. Rama? Thank you for the call, Nicole. Again, that that may be a legitimate concern to say that it's that it probably wouldn't fly in Burlington these days. Oh, did I say that? Yeah. But but because it's been around for a while, they get grandfathered in it. And it's possible I suppose that this is the best situation at the military had with what they have to work with. I don't think the military is planning on building any new airbases anytime soon that I know. Obviously, you know, everyone is going to have their idea or what their perception is of you know, where things should be looking at the reality is that we have an stay and fairly of recognizing warhead from international Griffey's right to willington. And with the you know studies and the the process that the air force went through and deciding where the jets should be base. The decision was made for Burlington to sit here and say we feel the base someplace else we need to move the airport. There's definitely a part of the opponents continue that same sets Roman international airports just being located where it is. But that's not my reality. This is the reality. And when deciding how it is that we were going to protect our nations they decided that Burlington Vermont with the best place. It sounds like the Ponant from what I heard in the previous segment are pretty enthusiastic about showing. Up at the state house tomorrow in support of these resolutions are the proponents going to be represented there tomorrow, or are they all they're all just going to forego making their case in front of the legislature. I'm fairly not gonna spend my time. And I appreciate the fact that, you know, we have a democratic process and definitely that, you know, the state house is, you know, the people's house, and that everyone can go, and you know, have their opinions heard. But the thing is is that what they're introducing here has no application to one is actually going on. There are no nuclear capabilities for the thirty five got are being based in Burlington. So this is just a waste of the public's time. Two two four four one seven seven seven toll free eight seven seven to nine one talk. Jerry from Berlin. You're on the Dave Graham show. Good morning.

"The. Radio. It's the Dave Graham show on WD EV. It's your show about the people places and the issues that matter the most to you now, here's your host, Dave Graham. Well, a bit surprise for you. But nothing you haven't heard already this week. Good morning. My name's Brent Curtis. I'm going to be filling in for Dave who's recuperating home? And I wanna take a minute to say, Dave, we're thick. And you hope you get better soon. How about that? For those of you who are regular WD EV listeners. You might recognize this voice as that of high school basketball, or maybe the bonus edition the trading post or probably even more the play by play guy for the Warren fourth of July parade job. I thought was going to catapult me into stardom. But again at least be able to go back next year. In the meantime, when I was invited to fill in for Dave I thought about the two areas that really are going to track some attention as we come out of the winter season. And that's transportation and highways one of the reasons I like that is because as you should know. I do work for the agency of transportation. So today. Two of my guests have some rather. Interesting responsibilities one more traditional and the either. Well, it's a very interesting I refer to it as a cultural tapestry of Vermont transportation and the first hour I'm gonna talk to Ross MacDonald about his project, go Vermont. Then a second hour. We're going to have the chief engineer for the state of Vermont, Wayne Simmons here, and it's going to be an interesting not real dichotomy, but it's going to give us an idea of the very many facets of transportation in for Mont in order to do this. I wanna give you just a little bit of historical context. If we were determined the hands of time back to say, the nineteen seventies population of Vermont was about four hundred seventy thousand people at that time. It was the highway department and it was their primary focus to build and maintain roads. Now twenty nineteen the Vermont agency of transportation serves a population. Right around six hundred twenty six thousand for monitors. Now, take those Vermont IRS add them to the visitors and put it all together. And you have a combined travel of over seven point one billion with a B vehicle miles over the state's roads. Now, it was just a few years back forty plus the legislature combined four separate departments. They combined highway motor vehicle aeronautics. And public transit that form that what is currently the Vermont agency of transportation today. Vermont has about fourteen thousand two hundred miles of roadway about three hundred twenty miles of interstate in over two thousand seven hundred miles of toll Free State highways over eleven thousand miles of municipal roads. So if nothing else, you know, I did my homework and research this now, you should also know that they're about seven hundred forty eight miles railroads Borden. Fifty three of them are owned by the state of Mont their sixteen public use air. Sports and ten state owned airports all that put together. And we have a lot of interesting things to talk about today coming up I is going to be Ross MacDonald as I mentioned he's gonna talk about go Vermont now, go Vermont's statewide resource Vermont who want to reduce the cost and the environment in environmental impact of driving. Let me tell you a bit about Ross to begin with Ross starters career and state government after twelve years of working for the international manufacturing companies in two thousand four he joined the New Jersey department of Vermont environmental protection and contributed to land use policies and transportation oriented design projects. Rawson his family moved to run in two thousand seven where he became a public transit program coordinator, it's at this point in time in Ross career that he created what we're gonna talk about today. Go vermont. Now, this is for the agency of transportation, the combination of business environmental and transportation experience that Ross brings to the table is really highlighted in this program Ross good morning. Welcome to the Dave Graham show, and we're so excited to have you here today. Well, thank you very much. Brent thank you for having me. We're going to start by just asking you to give us an overall picture of go Vermont talk about your vision. And

Everybody live from the state house in Montpellier leak attell filling in for Dave Graham on this Friday morning, and we have a jam packed day with several guests talking about the important issues facing for monitor's this morning on the way, we're going to speak with Waterbury Representative Tom Stevens. There's a lot going on in town of Waterbury. And and Tom's also working on a number of important issues in the state, including the minimum wage act. That is currently in the legislature. Steve Howard, the executive director of the Vermont state employees association will be along later this hour as well. Coming up in the ten o'clock hour, we'll talk with our Washington colleagues with talk meet at news service. Find out what's going on in the nation's capital. Ten fifteen Commissioner of. Nanteuil regulation. Michael p Shak will join us to talk about some of the financial issues in the state and the agency of natural resources secretary. Julie more will join us at ten thirty to talk about some of our environmental issues here in Vermont. And a reminder a lot of these guests are on for a very brief period. So if you have questions out there for our guests get on the phone right away because they're going to come and go fairly quickly. It's eight oh, two two four four one seven seven seven and toll free from everywhere. One eight seven seven to nine one eight two five five our first guest. This morning is from the Vermont coalition to regulate marijuana Laura. Soubanh Laura welcome to the Dave Graham show much for having me. Now, what position do you hold with the coalition, I director coalition? So you are the executive director. I am okay. While don't be shy, you earn too. Because as I see looking doing some. Research online. You have been with the coalition for several years here in the state. I have since since we started in two thousand fourteen now do smoke marijuana. Why don't answer eight? Legal to consume marijuana in Vermont. Now, finally if I wanted to I'd have that right? Okay. Well up until about two years ago, I used to consume mass quantities. But somehow something changed so that all went away happily, but but I do not begrudge the people who do choose to us here in the state. And there are a lot of folks who are regular users. That would like the opportunity to say go to a store or somewhere where they can go instead of knocking on somebody's door and making phone calls and. For marijuana users. That's one of the big inconveniences about the habit is finding the guy or gal or whoever and making arrangements. It's actually for folks who were to use it. It's kind of inconvenient the way things are right now, or especially the way things were now that you can grow. It's a little easier. Right. So we have made progress there is a way to legally consume and and get marijuana before yourself. But yes, it should be possible to go to a store like you can alcohol Meyer wanna is the far safer substance. And there's absolutely no reason why it shouldn't be taxed and regulated for adult similar alcohol Roach. So the taxing and regulation part is why the state legislatures got in on a personal note while I'm sharing stories here for eighty years ever since they passed the federal act. People who have chosen to use marijuana have been putting at risk their their livelihood, their families possible incarceration potential access to various federal resources. So they've stood for a lot to gain for nearly eight decades now, and my personal opinion is for those eight years now, the we're starting to flip the coin on a little bit. Maybe we should have eight years on the house without much interference from everybody. Well, I think that that there are a lot of benefits consumers from attacking regulates as I should make note that we've been using the word marijuana cannabis is the preferred term the history of prohibition has been absolutely agree GIS, and it's a history of. Latent racism, including the term marijuana comes has raisins races history itself. It was used in the nineteen thirties as a way to stigmatize Mexican immigrants who consumed cannabis, and so it's interesting the colored cannabis back in the nine cannabis, correct? Name for it. It's the name of the plant and they went to marijuana to stigmatize these these stereotype of users as Mexicans as foreigners someone different. And so that term has racist undertones itself. So in the current this proposal this year in the legislation if this Bill passes, it would direct the state of Mont to change all reference to marijuana in its laws and replace it with cannabis. There's no when it was originally made it illegal back in nineteen thirties was the number one compelling reason why they did it because they thought it was a potential health hazard for people that used it. Or was it the fact that they were. Were there were synthetic fibres being made that we're going to go to in direct competition with the hemp industry. And that was another reason why they demonize the entire plant. I think that the history has never been based on the science. It's never been realistic based on that relative harms possible harms to merit American abyss consumption, excuse me. And yes, I think you're right. It has had a history of economic abuse racial injustice, and it's never been outlawed for the right reasons. It's going to be tricky run for the legislature. It seems because they are looking to tax it to generate revenue, but they have also legalized creating a couple of plants for everybody to grow if they want and from my experience if you grow a couple of plants really well. That's all you need. I mean, there's there's not really for folks, we're going to grow it. There's not going to be an opportunity to sell it. So who are their customers going to be? Well, I think that the ability to grow candidates isn't available to everyone if you live in an apartment, you would need your landlords permission and a lot of landlords are reluctant to give that permission if you live in subsidized housing marijuana cannabis is still illegal federally. And so you'd never be allowed to grow cannabis in in Beverly subsidized housing, so there are a lot of contain. If you live in a op co op orde might not give you permission to grow cannabis. There are many consumers that wouldn't be able to access it even if they did want to grow it themselves. So there are those customers, but I also think that there are it's a civil liberties motivation, it should be you can go into a store you can buy alcohol, and you should be able to do the same with cannabis. You also when you go into liquor store bottles are labeled for what's in their products for. OTC they've been tested for purity. So there's a real consumer protection need. And I think some people would rather shop in stores for those reasons to know exactly what they're getting. And how strong it is. And know that it's been cleared from any kind of pesticides. And that kind of thing that might be harmful mildew a big problem sometime. So you think that there's enough product quality. There would be enough product quality testing to make sure that what people were buying was a quality product. I think testing is going to improve. I think that they're in the current proposals. There's requirements for third party testing, which I think is going to be really positive for the quality of the cannabis. That's available. I also think the market is going to do a lot of free market to get rid of bad products. Because the better products are what people are going to want wanna buy. And so as you are taking a look at the legislation it's coming down. Let me ask you a couple of quick questions here the legal marijuana smoking agent. A state of Ramon will be twenty one twenty one so not eighteen and so are you envisioning this actually being sold in retail grocery stores, or is it going to be dispensary model right now definitely what is conceived of is dispense dispensary models stores that only sell cannabis and cannabis products and may be CD type of candidates products. And we'll have that as well. But how many locations are we looking at currently that is a that is very unanswered question at the moment, what this legislative proposal does is create a new regulatory agency cannabis control board, and that board would be tasked with making a lot of the details of the rules. It would they would suggest rules to legislature next year. And eventually that is the entity that. Would oversee the new industry would make decisions such as how many licenses are going to be issued. How many stores are going to be the size of cultivation operations the coalition happy with that arrangement. Yes. We think that's a good idea for there to be an independent agency. That's not attached to specific administration. It's a big undertaking to start a new industry. And so to have an agency that's tasked with that just that not alone. I think is really important. I am hopeful that industry will grow in a way that is conscious of the history of cannabis prohibition. And I'm encouraged that the legislation would direct the board to take into consideration prioritizing businesses that would promote minorities and women and people that have been disproportionately impacted by cannabis prohibition. Issue is another part of it. Because basically what to the to the cynic to the cynical marijuana user? They look at basically the legislature trying to pique their nose into a very profitable business and take the profit margin from a black market and gather it for themselves through taxation, and is it if the state decides they want to start taxing it that's going to lower the price because they will have to be competitive with the black market. What talk about the economics of the plan. Okay. The legislature has been very clear that their intent is to be competitive with the illicit market, but the tax I think the revenue estimates are quite modest, and I wouldn't be surprised to see the market outperform the current revenue forecasts. So I don't think that economic stimulus is the primary motivation behind this legislator legislative proposal. I know for. Sure that the members of my coalition are have been working towards this from a civil liberties criminal Justice reform perspective primarily, but of course, economic stimulus for the state is positive. So if that revenue comes in that's all the better. I think that what is essential is to make it make sense for small cultivators small businesses to want to come into the legal market. So the ways that you can do that is to keep license fees low enough to keep the costs of security requirements that kind of thing low enough that we are encouraging small Vermont farmers and businesses to move from an illicit market to regulated market watcher. We haven't talked about the Bill that's crawling through the state house right now a couple more questions for you get to that. Pam ready? There are okay. So with a couple of dispensaries in the state of somebody lives, a long ways away could they arrange to have it mailed to them is that part of what's in this Bill is proposal does not contemplate mail for delivery. It does. Direct the board to consider delivery and in the future delayed. There's a robust illicit delivery market operating in the state of Vermont right now. And so with a lot of Advocacy's, we we have encouraged legislators to be realistic about what's happening in the elicit market.
