I see they are still using discredited information and reefer madness style hysteria. Educating people about the truth will defeat these self righteous twits every time. What people do in their own homes is nobody's business!

Just for health & air pollution reasons alone they shouldn't allow pot smoking. Plus who wants to smell like a stoner. This is how they need to fight legalized pot: just like legal cigarette smoking there should be restrictions on public smoking ie smoke in YOUR home, not hotel rooms, bars, parks etc, smoke it in YOUR home and stink up your stuff.

Tigthen up pot laws by treating them like cigarettes etc. They need to treat smoked pot as a pollutant and associated health hazard. I don't even want to smell cigarettes or cigar smoke. Why should I tolerate pot smoke.

And when they treat pot as a pollutant they also have to do something about the stinky butted colognes, soaps and shampoos. Keep your stink at home.

The votes say that you won't be labeled a criminal for possession of under an once of cannabis. This is exactly what what you prohibitionist did not want to happen........you lose.

Police that find a single joint or amounts under an ounce around here usually just scatter it out in the road,give a good warning about "next time" and send the people on their way unless the driver is blitzed. It's way too much paper work to fool with and the judge will turn them out with a small fine. Now if they find large amounts or any hard stuff, everyone goes downtown. It still boils down to the common sense element of knowing when and where.

One ounce,one pound,one ton, you still have a problem if you get caught driving or in a pee test. The vote changed nothing with those two items.

You're not labeled a criminal,just labeled unemployed. Get a DUI and you get labeled as HIGH RISK or uninsurable.
