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.
From April 2020 to April 2021, the CDC predicts OD deaths in the U.S. increased by 28%. During the same period, VT's OD deaths went up by nearly 70%.www.burlingtonfreepress.com
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.
