I think along the lines of Ron Paul on a few issues, He is in favor of legalization of all drugs and let the addict's and casual users fight it out.

The war on drugs and the prohibition of such has been a complete failure. The ultra-conservative "Moral Majority" if you will, seem to think they can legislate morals and out law things they see as "evil"

Well it does not work and history proves it.

Well spit out your plan for allowing an employee to have MJ in their system on company premises, on company time, in company vehicles and not involving the employer to be responsible for situations caused by those people testing" under the influence" may cause. If a company has a zero tolerance drug and substance policy, get tested positive and OUT YOU GO!!! That will not change.

It should be mandatory, that all legislators at State and Federal levels be required to read and study the massive and redundant scientific research concerning cannabis, that clearly proves it to be an extremely dangerous source of brain chemical changing, endocrine system changing, hallucinogenic drug, which induces thought disorders and complete compromise of time and space perception. Those continuing to push this and other drugs on the American youth (which they always do to validate their own use) should be in prison, period. The use of this mind altering drug is worse today because it is ten times more potent through genetic refinement for resin production. Homosexuals commonly use the drug to molest young people and force them into a form of sexual slavery.

It is foul and disturbing, that those in our society called to oversee the safety of our citizenry, would faint and shirk in their duty to protect us. Shame on these gutless "servants" of society!

And that is perfectly fine. If a private company has a "zero drug policy" then they have every right to exercise their right to test their employees nobody is saying they don't.

There are more and more company's that do not test for THC

Alcohol is legal but most people do not go to work drunk

I seem to have agreed, over the years with many of Ron Paul's common sense, political opinions.....Yet, for the life of me, i just can't see, eye to eye with Rand Paul.....It's as though, he is existing on his father's fame....

Those traits are often associated with Hashish use, not marijuana.....do you have any definitive proof?

one could look at how other nations have handled drug use. everything the 'war on drugs' has done has not made a dent in drug use. people like to use drugs...always have and always will. the problem is drug abuse.

now Portugal decriminalized all drugs. they took all the money they used fighting drug use and put it towards drug abuse treatment and education. their costs went down and drug ABUSE went down. drug use stayed about the same, as it always will....

Politician's have adapted to walking a tightrope on important issues....to in love with keeping their office and the corporate money, instead of doing what's best for the people or country.....I came up during the 60-70's and we alway's thought, just wait till our own generation got in power....we forgot the pile of money, blocking their way....
