Medical and recreational marijuana may be legal in Colorado, but employers in the state can lawfully fire workers who test positive for the drug, even if it was used off duty, according to a court ruling Thursday.
The Colorado Court of Appeals found there is no employment protection for medical marijuana users in the state since the drug remains barred by the federal government.
I've been waiting for that to occur. I support the recreational use of marijuana, and have had several truck drivers revel in the legalization of it, and have told them that will be the result.

I didnít, they keep bringing up procreation as an argument against same sex marriage and I just keep reminding them that has no place in this argument.
And thank you I agree, when you argue with a child and they canít stand up to what you are saying they go after you personally, or criticize spelling or typos or what have you... I agree, you cannot stand up to the argument
You haven't been honest. You have been insisting "they" have stated that procreation is a REQUIREMENT for marriage. No one has said that.

Glad to see I have finally shamed you into toning down that lie.

I agree that even childless families are good for society. But to argue that children have nothing to do with the government's interest in marriage is ridiculous. Did you cut the first day of freshman sociology or cultural anthropology?

Of course they do, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, cousins, grandparents.

That reasoning could be applied to a number of consenting adult relationships.

Suppose the two men were brothers.....does it change the situation?

And the brothers?

Would the brother?

Legally married opposite sex couple. They could be of "mixed orientation".
<quoted text>
Nor with siblings?
<quoted text>
It's not available to other adults in similar situations either.
<quoted text>
Why stop at couples? If marriage is simply a protection program, it's unfair to limit it to "couples". Plural marriages, adult siblings living together long term, etc., could also benefit from marriage protection.
On the money!

No, it doesn't. You don't understand logic at all. Logic dictates that your rights shouldn't depend on what's in your underwear.
Then, you support the complete removal of all gender-based restrictions? Then, my rights were violated, in school, by my not being allowed to take school showers with the girls....I mean the other "persons of non-relevant-gender"...

If you got married, one gender would be duplicated.
You are a monster with both male and female genes.(You called yourself a monster.)
Should you be allowed to marry?

Lets not let them do that, why do we have to endure the shame of the Japanese had to with their nuclear power stations.
Because, we are free to make mistakes that others have already made, like legalizing SSM.

When Kim Kardashian married Kris Humphries for 72 days, was that a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior?
When Anna Nicole Smith, who met 85 year old oil tycoon, J. Howard Marshall, at the strip club where she performed and then married him, was that a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior?
When the minister, Glynn "Scotty" Wolfe, married and divorced 29 times, were those cross cultural constraints on evolutionary mating behavior?
When Britney Spears married Jason Allen Alexander at The Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas; only to have it annulled 55 hours later, was that a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior?
Face it, you boob, heterosexual marriage has been in decline for centuries. It has nothing to do with gays.
Perfectly normal, long-term gay couples wish to marry one another. It will have NO impact on marriage and families.
You have a cob up your jacksie about gays--that's all. You think we're "broken"--that we are genetic mistakes. You think these things even though you have no proof to back up your claims.
Get over it! Gays are normal, functioning, people. I would say that they're just like you, but that would be insulting to us.
No, those were predictable train wrecks, like SSM.
"heterosexual marriage has been in decline for centuries. "? Oh? I need for you to explain how less people have been getting married, over the centuries..Please provide documented data, and peer reviews. Please give your margin for error.
Or, you could simply admit that you have gone out on a limb, and made a false claim (again).
And don't flatter yourself by thinking that you are the rational ones. You have already been told.
Tell us when we get to the part where you set yourselves up as the originally rational ones, and how we heterosexuals have always been duplicating your idealogy.
And, please don't forget to include the bit about how we are "closet cases' for asserting that you are broken.

How many times have you made this stupid argument? Equal protection of the law. PLEASE explain how 5 people in a marriage are equal to two people.
And where is it written that changing one aspect of a law means ALL aspects are required to be changed? It's such a bogus argument. If I thought you had any sense, I'd expect you'd be embarrassed, but somehow YOU think it's a valid point. Yeah, right.....
Those 2 people do not possess any more rights than do the 5. Or, any less. Ipso facto, equality. Any other simply inane questions concerning governmental restrictions on marriage?
