Local weed? That's the idea behind "Vermont Home Grown," an effort to focus on small, local production of marijuana if Vermont legalizes it for recreational use.

If a Vermont State Senator and some advocacy groups in Windham County have their way, the phrase "Vermont Home Grown" could be a reference not just to food, but also to marijuana.

In fact, Vermont Home Grown is one of the groups that joined Senator Jeanette White this week at the River Gardens in Brattleboro to discuss proposed legislation that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana in Vermont.
Reporter Howard Weiss-Tisman covered the meeting and has been writing about the legalize-it movement in the Brattleboro Reformer. Read his story here.
