Vermont --  The Senate Judiciary Committee passed a bill Thursday that removes jail time as a possible penalty for most small marijuana possession cases. The bill would offer the court diversion program for people arrested for their first or second offenses for possessing one ounce or less of the plant, a far cry from the push for decriminalization that some have called for.
"What I've been told and what this committee has heard is that this is current practice across the state," said Sen. Richard Sears, D-Bennington, the chairman of the committee who offered up the changes Thursday.The bill, which passed out of the committee in a 4-1 vote, is expected to land on the full Senate floor next week.For more on this story, see Friday's Times Argus.

Mitt Romney Quit!
Woo Hoo! I am so glad this hateful "family values must be enforced by law" bastard is gone. This guy is so mentally disabled, had he been elected President, I predict this country would have split up, liberals on the left, conservatives on the right.
