Vermont marijuana growers and advocates gathered earlier this week to discuss proposed legislation that would legalize recreational use of the drug in the state.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports (http://bit.ly/1ezZnYZ ) Monday's meeting in Brattleboro was called by advocacy groups Vermont Cannabis Collaborative and Vermont Home Grown in conjunction with Sen. Jeanette White.
White, a Windham Democrat, has promised to help write a bill for the upcoming session.
White says the meeting was held to gauge public interest on the issue and many growers shared concerns about not being left behind when the production and sale of marijuana becomes legal.

Police have been asked to keep an eye on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's home on the Maine coast following his decision to uphold the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
Scarborough Police Chief Robbie Moulton tells the Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/1fGov0Y ) that the NFL reached out Tuesday to alert police about Goodell's decision, which isn't popular in New England.
Goodell has vacationed for years in Scarborough and recently built a home at Prout's Neck.
The chief declined to say whether Goodell was at his home Wednesday.
The Los Angeles City Council has voted to ban the possession of high-capacity gun magazines following deadly mass shootings nationwide.
Tuesday's 12-0 vote closes a loophole in state law that banned the manufacture and sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition — but not their possession.
Mayor Eric Garcetti says he'll sign the measure, saying it will save lives and prevent crime.
People who have the magazines will have 60 days from the time the law takes effect to sell, destroy or take them out of the city.
Councilman Paul Krekorian led a two-year push for the ban.
Authorities say the man suspected of carjacking a priest after robbing a southern New Jersey drugstore last month is behind bars.
Haddonfield police say 27-year-old Donald Hart, of Mantua, was arrested Tuesday in Cherry Hill.
Police say a suspect carrying a traffic cone and wearing a long yellow rain jacket, a yellow reflective vest with a black mask, a hooded sweatshirt and a white hardhat stole prescription drugs at gunpoint from the Rite Aid on June 16.
Police say he then carjacked a priest before abandoning the vehicle a block away.
Authorities have charged Hart with robbery, carjacking, aggravated assault and weapons offenses.
Across wide swaths of America, drivers aren't required to display a front license plate on their passenger cars. But it's different in Ohio, where a motorist was fatally shot during a Cincinnati traffic stop prompted by his failure to display a front plate.
None of Ohio's border states require two plates.
