Letter: Unfair Picture in ‘Rolling Stone’

Unfair Picture in ‘Rolling Stone’

To the Editor:

To Rolling Stone magazine: Shame on you! I am a Vermonter and was once a maple syrup producer with my husband. The publication has a lot of gall to use a Vermont maple syrup can and a sugarmaker shooting drugs to highlight the drug problem in Vermont. What it published is an insult to the people of Vermont and to the maple syrup producers in particular. As for drug use, the vast majority of Vermonters are squeaky clean, so the accusations are doubly insulting.

If the magazine doesn’t publish a retraction and apologize to Vermont and its residents, I sincerely hope that it is hit with multiple lawsuits or a class-action suit. That’s what it deserves.
