All of our employees backgrounds are checked before they are hired and they are drug tested. Then we use common sense. We aren't going to put a delivery driver in a company vehicle for 8 hours a day if he has 12 tickets in the last 5 years but we might hire an office worker with a suspended drivers license. The bus stops right outside the building. We might also make an exception for an office worker receiving cancer treatments or with glaucoma who has a medical marijuana card if it does not affect their job performance but we would not allow that person to work with dangerous machinery.
People scream it's not fair. People should all be treated the same. I disagree. Every person is an individual with different talents and stumbling blocks. Every one has something to offer somebody if they're willing to work. Some can do intricate brain surgery but somebody still has to scrub the floors and clean the bathrooms too.
I haven't seen anything in the news about how the AMA and the FDA are going to handle medical MJ. If they classify it as "experimental" or "investigational" treatment,the insurance carriers can refuse payment. Also if a Doctor that writes scrips for MM is not accepted in their "network",the insured can wind up denied coverage for all treatments if his condition worsens. It will probably wind up in a long drawn court battle trying to force those two groups into acceptance.

Most doctors are very aware of the benefits of marijuana in treating certain conditions. Since the AMA is an association of Doctors I don't see a problem there. My limited experience with people on medical marijuana indicates that most tend to grow their own so why would insurance be involved? The rest actually pay for it with their own money. I know that's a weird concept these days. Everyone thinks somebody else should pay but personal responsibility does still exist. If I was in severe pain I would rather pay for marijuana than fork over the co-pays for addictive narcotics but that's just me.

But without a prescription,there is a danger of getting caught either at work or by POPO in a traffic stop. Even where it's legal, there will have to be a designated driver or you get a DUI.

With the medical marijuana a card was issued. That should not be necessary now that we voted to legalize it.
Yes, you will need a driver if you're stoned. You can get a DUI with many prescription drugs too.

I have news for you, the feds are going to raid your shops and seize your assets. You all need to start a campaign for all potential jurors in these cases to return no bill or NOT GUILTY. The bankers are going you all pay for taking away their tax free blood money, they love so much laundering. That included the black money for the Mossad and CIA for their evil deeds around the world. Maybe now, people in Mexico will see the U.S. backed cartels drop off.

Pot is bad.
LMAO! I'm laughing because, My mother just survived chemo, because her doctor saw that she was dying from not eating. While visiting in California, I went into the kitchen for a midnight snack and saw brownies. Not thinking it was "her brownies" I ate one. I was visited by the carebears that night. I woke up the next morning right as rain. Never felt better in my life . I'm a recently retired cop. I never knew what I was missing until that night.

Why were they ordered to leave the medical marijuana dispensaries alone then?

I've used Marijuana medically for several years now for pain. I think the benefits far out way the cons. For Colorado Marijuana is a huge revenue source and once the legislation here gets the laws written for recreational use it will be an even bigger source of revenue

Only for the welfare recipients that are too lazy to work for being stoned all the time and want to work the system.

The best source of revenue will be the fines on those who don't stay within the legal limits of growing,selling,possession or driving.

Thank you for posting this site. Educating the public about the truth of cannabis will be the downfall of this prohibition. This info needs to be copy and pasted in threads all across America, especially in southern states due to them having the strictest and harshest laws against this plant.
