Appendix III: Vermont State Statutes

Students are often curious as to how the State of Vermont might respond to situations involving alcohol, crime, and illegal substances.

Some examples from the Vermont statutes are:

* A person knowingly and unlawfully possessing a small quantity of marijuana shall be imprisoned not more than six months or fined not more than $500, or both.

* A person knowingly and unlawfully selling marijuana shall be imprisoned not more than two years or fined not more than $10,000, or both.

* A person knowingly and unlawfully possessing a small quantity of Ecstasy, cocaine, heroin, depressants, stimulants, narcotic drugs, LSD, or other hallucinogenic drug] shall be imprisoned not more than one year or fined not more than $2,000, or both.

* A person knowingly and unlawfully dispensing a larger quantity of a hallucinogenic drug, other than LSD, shall be imprisoned not more than three years or fined not more than $25,000, or both. * A person knowingly and unlawfully possessing larger quantities of such drugs, or dispensing such drugs, shall be subject to more severe sanctions depending upon the circumstances.

Green Mountain College will cooperate and collaborate with the Vermont State Police, Department of Liquor Control and Drug Enforcement Agency on an as-needed basis in attempt to maintain a safe and secure College community.
