No weed? Fine, but no booze, either. And no dancing. Vermont is Footloose now.

Vermont Representatives, hoping to demonstrate how silly it is that marijuana is illegal, have introduced a bill that would reinstate prohibition. But if they really want to legalize marijuana, they should threaten to take away the thing Vermont loves most. Every state has something that can be used as a bargaining chip.
