Step down off your cloud for a moment and be serious. Will this vote do away with government mandated workplace rules? Will it excuse people involved in accidents from being charged with DUI? The system as is may be a better way because in many places the local police will birddog the places selling legally like they do the private liquor and beer stores with the " inconspicuous surveillance" van parked nearby with night vision and long distance recording of who comes and goes to put in a data base for future use to track those possessing too much or selling to minors. As it is now, you buy your bud with no tracks and no records, and no problems and if you're not totally plastered, the locals will dump your stash to the wind and send you on your way to keep from writing up the paperwork. Under "legalization" , buying a week's worth of groceries and being an ounce over limits could get you a bit of trouble. What's in place now may be better than what you're wishing for if you covet your privacy.

Que Pasa? Yes, states outside the Bible Belt will legalize for recreational use and medical use but they still can't force a company to allow you on premises IF that company has a zero policy. That will have to come from Washington and only after Washington drops workplace protection rules. If the stoners would stay away from those restricted places of employment, there would be NO issues of getting tested and fired and everyone could be happy ,happy, happy!(D.D.) Now what's so hard to understand about that?

WOW! For once you made a post that did not have the words corporation, jobsite, workplace, rules, employment, policy, any time soon, plan, or pee in it. It might have taken you five years, but you did it. Way to go tommy, your repetitive azz deserves a cookie.

People that use it dont understand how the THC affects the brain, not the lungs. It is a narcotic and leads to stronger narcotics. Doctors have proven this through research.
I am neither for or against the use of marijuana but I have researched the issue and I will share some of my findings.
1. There has never been evidence that anyone has EVER died from over dosing on marijuana. That's right EVER. In fact, medical evidence is conclusive that you would have to smoke 15,000 joints in 30 minutes to raise the THC levels in you blood to a lethal level.

Compare that to the thousands upon thousands of people who die from alcohol poisoning and prescription drug overdose, not to mention the alcohol-related deaths in automobile accidents and lung cancer from cigarette smoking.

Clear medical evidence shows that the carcinogens in cigarette smoke promote the growth of cancerous tumors in the lungs, itís a fact, yet cigarettes are still sold to the general public legally on a daily basis
There is no medical evidence that marijuana cigarette smoke promotes any cancerous tumors anywhere in the body.

There is no conclusive evidence that the drug effects of marijuana are causally linked to the subsequent abuse of other illicit drugs. The gateway drug argument is a complete myth.

Bottom line alcohol, tobacco and prescription drugs are killing people on a daily basis. Marijuana is not killing anyone, ever.

You're not saying anything new that has not already been said on Topix MJ is not the problem. The long term legal logistics of legal MJ is the problem and has yet to be worked out.

We're still waiting on your workable plan to incorporate "Legal" state smoking into government mandated restrictions placed on companies. You have come up with ZERO, ZILTCH, NOTHING . Could it be that you realize that there will still be those restrictions when the "SMOKE" settles and "legal" won't always mean "legal" ?

The subject was about legalization of MJ. The word "LEGALIZATION" is as tall as it is long. Legalization for prescribed medical use only or legalization for anytime/anywhere/ anybody use. To make the second part happen, there has to be a game plan in your mind to overcome the legalities and complications of open use. No one has tried to "hijack" your thread,. I've just been trying to get you to tell the world how total legalization is going to come about and you've dodged the subject.
