Dave Silberman is a Middlebury attorney and a leading statehouse advocate for criminal justice and drug policy reform. After a 20-year career as a corporate attorney in New York and Los Angeles (telecommuting for the last 11 of those years), Dave recently launched a boutique solo law practice, Silberman PLC, where he represents local entrepreneurs in the emerging cannabis industry and beyond. This past November, Dave was elected High Bailiff of Addison County, which we swear is an actual thing. You can reach Dave at [email protected].


Heady Vermont is a community and digital platform dedicated to growing cannabis culture and policy reform.

We believe that building a legal, ethical, and celebratory cannabis culture – one that’s infused with an ethos of social, environmental, and economic justice – can have a positive and meaningful impact on all people and their overall well-being.
