A minute from the Alta exit off the I-15!
I bought a house in NH near the border. The regional newspaper is always filled with VT crime stories, much more crime in VT than on the NH side of the border. COVID and the ensuing demographic shift has taken it's toll on VT. VT now seems like a socialist shithole.

Giving people free $$ not to work and legal weed.....What could go wrong?

Yeah because people do weed over hard drugs when their lives are miserable /s

If you don't ski or aren't into nature, Vermont sucks. High cost of living, miserable climate, limited opportunities for a better life. It's been like that for decades. Once the heroin and meth dealers figured out they had a huuuuge market in Rutland (a la...Rutvegas)... beyond your typical "small town" drug dealer vibes... the OD deaths weren't gonna stop.

No surprise but their wrong in 5ggat theory
"“Your children will buy marijuana, they will buy it. They already are, and they already are smoking it,” said Sean Corbett, a local resident who argued that retail stores selling regulated marijuana will be safer than what can be bought on the black market, which can be laced with dangerous drugs. “We as marijuana users are advocating for safe marijuana for everybody.”.

How this thread has morphed into what it is now, is kind of disturbing.

What started out as a thread about a ski family, who is known by many in the ski forum community and the sudden loss of their 20 something daughter likely due to fentanyl laced pot, has now become a pro pot in various forms thread.

Maybe what this thread is about now should be continued in the "legalize it already" thread in the miscellaneous topics forums?

you have no idea she was using 'fentanyl laced pot' - that was never specified in the k-zone post. the overwhelming likelihood is that she was using hard drugs laced with fentanyl. fentanyl laced pot is a DARE style bogeyman. its awful that a young person died, but 99.9% chance they didn't die because of pot.

Yup. We aren’t being disrespectful in any way. I simply won’t recognize the silly fear mongering bs from the anti weed crowd.

It's an odd thing to bring to this forum in the first place. The person wanted the story out in that specific venue, weird to bring their grief to a different ski forum.

Well the individuals who lost their daughter have both posted here in the past and are known to members of this forum as well. I'm sure Jeff's primary motivation is to draw attention to something awful that happened to SkiDork and Ty more so than to make this a DARE type PSA.

Exactly DHS. As well as maybe show some empathy and compassion for a family, who has been through more than most families go through, prior to the loss of their daughter so suddenly this past Fall

If by assumptive leap, you mean saying what the mother said when she told Kzone about it a month or so ago, then I am guilty as charged
she said possible fentanyl not fentanyl laced pot. you seem to have combined these 2 things in your mind. possibly fentanyl does not equal guaranteed fentanyl laced Marijuana. go back and read the k zone thread.

The implication is made a few posts down. Atleast that is how it reads to me. If I am wrong, then I apologise for that. Just trying to be a compassionate human to a family that I have met in the past, who has been through so much and now have lost their youngest child . As a compassionate parent, that is something that I can't even imagine the hurt that it must cause

The title of the thread on kzone was fentanyl laced pot. It was not started by ty or dork, but ty commented about her daughter and how they believe fentanyl was involved with her overdose. Kinda disrespectful they way people are bickering like children here, RIP to the snow princess.

I re-read the thread on K-Zone and interpreted the 2nd post by Ty the same way you did originally, although I can also see how it is a bit unclear what the marijuana reference from Ty was specifically referring to.

Its tragic to lose someone, I can’t imagine being a parent and going through that with your child. My heart goes out to the family.

Those who use pot either sees it as indication pot would be safer legalized. (or they didn't see the part about laced in pot in the initial post)

Those who don't use pot read what's there and not much more.

Those who know the family get the point of DrJeff's first post. Some of those who don't know the family may choose to bicker over party politics. They're not being disrespectful. They don't know the family. It's just another stranger, another statistic.

Nothing new. Nothing terrible. That's just the way an online forum typically is.

What a nightmare scenario for any parent to go through.

I had the drug talk with the nephews as they are incapable of listening to their parents. I took the realistic approach as I'm quite sure they'll find their way into things. It basically went like this:

Don't do drugs people go to rehab for

Don't mess with nicotine. If you pick up a vaporizer for whatever dumb reason at least get the zero nicotine juice.

Respect whatever drug you're taking whether it be from a doctor or the street and know it will fuck with your ability to do things proper ie drive/work/study

If a drug makes you feel complete run

Keep booze moderate and infrequent. Odds are this is the one that will create problems.

If you drop acid it's not a.bad idea to order a test and test it. Start very small.

Don't buy drugs from shitty people.
