Mayor Lauzon's Lament


The mayor of Barre, Vermont is frustrated that we're losing the drug war. So far, so good. So his solution is to legalize marijuana. So far, even better.

Oh, and he also wants to execute anyone caught dealing cocaine or heroin.

So close! When a journalist asked a spokesman for Vermont Gov. James Douglas about Lauzon's proposals, he replied that the governor is dead-set against legalizing marijuana. But he'd have to give the other idea some thought.
