<quoted text> Colorado and Washington prove that there is an increasing awareness of the fact that marijuana has been a wrongly oppressed plant, with way more pros than cons. And anyone that thinks he or she couldnt find a doctor, dentist, or crane operator amongst the thousands of voters, isnt in touch with reality. Needless to say, other states will soon follow suit. Common sense is in the majority
Comman sense should tell you to not jump too soon. Federal laws still clasify MJ as a CLASS I narcotic and Fed laws overrule state laws until the Supreme Court says otherwise.

If you think you can push the feds, practice by pushing a rope.

<quoted text>If an accident ever occurs whether you smoked or the person causing the accident smoked, you BOTH get tested if you are working for a company that has workman's comp insurance. If you show positive,it can seriously affect what liability the company is responsible for other that patching you up ,firing you and sending you out the door. Try getting another job operating heavy machinery with a DRD on your work record. You may find you are limited to a shovel and wheelbarrow.
That is what I started out with,a shovel and a wheelbarrow,but my grandfather owns the company,so no I won't be using those anymore.My point was after that many years of operating and no accidents,the drug can be used responsibly.Oh the person who caused the accident gets drug tested,not everybody around him.

Not everyone around him because there would be no need for that but both the injured AND the person causing the accident gets tested when they arrive at emergency care. Anytime a company has a situation involving drug related accidents, the WC insurance company steps up the random testing.

Correlation to causation fallacy. If it wasn't a crime, then it wouldn't only be criminals involved.

While I can see both sides of the coin on this issue, I do like the idea of weed being regulated and taxed by gov't because that would be a huge tax base.....huge!
America is still a very puritanical country and I don't see our gov't even legalizing weed. Ever.
Update/:: now legal for recreational/medicinal use in several states now Colorado naming one.

With this administration and much of Congress, wishing to return control of mant issues, back to the states, i seriously doubt, the feds would waste a moment on anyone's pot....too many bigger issues....

If anything they will probably lower fines and restrictions for possession and use in small amounts but raise same on large dealers and growers. The feds are not ready to roll over and play dead. There's still the issue of state to state transportation,possession,and use to be worked out.
