Police officers have to be able to pass random drug tests to keep their jobs. Should not city hall lead by example??

"The ordinance was shut down after a 3-2 vote. Councilors Kathy Galvin and Kristin Szakos, and Mayor Satyendra Huja voted against it. Galvin said she feared that passing the ordinance would have undermined the work the criminal justice system has done so far."

If they let everyone do Marijuana and no fines or JAIL time then they matter as well let drunk drivers alone also because doing it and driving is as bad as drivin drunk. If you don't like it then let someone smoke this crep and drive and hit one of your children or family member and see how you will feel and say about it then. Come on keep this stuff in check and don't cash it in for someone to get hurt. If the law pass to do Marijuana then you can shut the beer joints down because you will not need them to get a buzz or high anymore. Think about it before you judge the right decison and thing to do. Way to go CITY COUNCIL. Help keep this crep out of right to do law.

That's not true either. There's evidence that IQ levels drop in kids that habitually use it, though not much. And when smoked, it's a carcinogen. It's stupid to use, but if you're an adult, and you're not harming anyone else... Knock yourself out. I don't care what you.

One cannot conflate smoking marijuana with drunk driving. DUI is already illegal, whether you're on alcohol, prescribed drugs, cough syrup, or marijuana. It's a false argument.

Everybody likes to wash the cotton mouth away with a cold craft brew and knock the munchies back with a couple of burgers from Riverside! Beer and joints go very well together, so don't close down either one! Just watch how Colorado will thrive financially with their new laws. Don't knock it till you try it, bud! Never heard of a single person call in sick to work cause they were too hungover after burning a fatty, but there are plenty of those whom enjoy alcohol and spend too much time in bed because they over indulged the night before. It's all about being responsible, so let adults choose for themselves.

i wasnt talking about kids using im talkin about 18 year and older using. also driving when high aint like drunk driving, i smoke every day and drive and never have had so much as a ticket. but im also not smoking a whole 1/8 i just smoke a bowl and go about my day. all the comments on this site just show how dumb most people are about issues like this. how many people here have even smoked weed? if you have then you would know being high and drunk are totaly diffent. i wish people in usa and the south would understand that weed really isn't bad.

wrong the cops wont be wasting tax payers money on non-violent crimals. and they can deal with bigger problems like gangs and violent people. leave the stoners alone we dont bother anyone but people love to bother us.
also think of all the funds the govement would get off of taxes. so ya there is no way that they would be losing money. in fact the state would be gaining money. but you mite be to inbred to unstand this or maybe you drank to much shine to undstand this.

You need to go back to grammar school. You are  
incomprehensible. I'd say you are one of those old fogies still living in the past. Do you still have a rotary phone?
