Desrochers and Sandy MacDougall, owner of Layla’s Riverside Lodge, are planning The Original Green Mountain Cannabis and Music Festival for July 1. That is the day in Vermont where those 21 and older can legally consume recreational marijuana, possess up to one ounce and/or as many as two mature plants.
“This is something the town can get behind and make a lot of money,” MacDougall said in hopes of bringing about 1,500 people to his property on Route 100 for the festival. “Our biggest thing is to get people up here. We are honestly crippled in the summer.”
