The state of Vermont has coming a long way in regards to marijuana. Even though a large percentage of their youth population was using marijuana in Vermont there have been laws put into place to legalize medical marijuana use. As for medical marijuana use in Vermont, as of 2013 two dispensaries have opened to allow a steady supply of marijuana to those with chronic pain or illness. They are located in the cities of Burlington VT and Montpelier VT. Medical Marijuana users must obtain a permit to carry and buy medical marijuana all which must be approved by the state and a licensed medical professional. Although legislation has been passed for legal marijuana use people are still concerned with marijuana addiction. Often times they are referred to a Vermont Marijuana Treatment and Rehab Center to help their disease. In all reality addiction is not a disease, and rehab is not always the answer to overcome a drug use problem.
Many Vermont Marijuana treatment centers will make you believe that the only solution to your problems is in fact Marijuana treatment. This is not true. People overcome Marijuana every day without treatment and without addiction professionals dictating how their lives should be lived.
