More than 30 law enforcement agencies in New York, Illinois and California are splitting nearly $9 million in assets seized when authorities busted a cross-country marijuana ring involving buried gold and a former world mountain biking champion.

Federal attorneys in Albany say 33 agencies have received more than $8.9 million of the $12.5 million in assets seized when the pot ring was taken down by authorities in 2009. The rest of the assets went to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Shumlin administration is preparing to launch a study of what marijuana legalization might look like in Vermont.

    

  Roger Roffman first discovered marijuana while serving as a US Army officer in Vietnam. From these seemingly innocuous beginnings, Roffman has been fascinated by marijuana, as a researcher, scholar, therapist, activist, and user.

Ever since America’s youth first marched in opposition to the war in Vietnam, pot’s popularity has periodically ebbed and surged. Calls for greater, fewer, or no marijuana penalties also have swung on their own pendulum.

He writes about his experiences in Marijuana Nation: One Man's Chronicle of America Getting High: From Vietnam to Legalization.
