MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police on Oct. 3 were informed of the theft of several hemp plants from a field off Quarry Road.

Several Addison County farms have received permission to grow hemp, which can be used to make paper, clothing, rope and a variety of other utilitarian products.

But while hemp is a close cousin to the marijuana plant, it doesn’t include enough of the THC chemical (that is present in pot) to produce a high if smoked or ingested.

MIDDLEBURY — Twenty-seven years ago, Chuck Laramie had reached his personal abyss.

A slave to alcohol and recreational drugs, he was so intoxicated one night that a police officer insisted on driving him home.

“He asked me what I was going to do when I got home, and I told him I had a loaded .38 (handgun) in my drawer and I was going to stick it in my mouth and get it all over with,” Laramie recalled. “That was my plan if it got real bad — that’s how I was going to end my addiction.”
