Sucks that many state employees are veterans with ptsd and chronic pain issues but they can't use even in legal states because their state receives money from the Feds so they fall under the drug free workplace policies. States need to take this fight to the Feds now. Obviously this issue is not limited to just state employees but it's a solid example of the major issues created by the Feds not legalizing.

Dr Peter Luongo is from the reefer madness generation. He is already brainwashed, his opinion is invalid on the matter.

It should be the peoples decision on whether its legalized, not any government party.

well look at it this way..#1.. How many people have you seen that died from an overdose after smoking marijuana?.. Zero... #2.. how many people has had a total blackout like you do and can get when drinking alcohol from smoking marijuana? Zero again... #3 how many people has died from liver failure like you can get after drinking alcohol and pain medication for a long time when smoking marijuana? And that would also be a big fat ZERO again.. The big problem you have with marijuana is the fact of that stupid freaking movie called Reefer Madness, that was put out during prohibition.. I don't care what kind of marijuana you smoke that has been grown naturally that would cause you to have elucidations.. That does not exist in any form of marijuana... the only way you can tell if someone in your area has been smoking marijuana is if they were arrested and you read it in the news paper... also if two people were walking side-by-side down the street and only one of them was totally drunk and the other one only smoking marijuana.. The only one that would stand out is the drunk.. I'm 51 now and I don't drink nor do I smoke marijuana.. But!! I did both of them in my passed and I do believe that would qualify me 100% to know which one is worse.. So thank you and have a nice day..

on one hand it's not safe to buy pot with synthetic drugs around. on the other hand weren't we supposed to be the generation to stop smoking? then again it will stop cops from filling the jail with potheads. but still there will be a massive problem with illegal distribution to neighboring states. I would love to see decriminalization FIRST.

superheavymetaldemon never stop cannabis use!! We have a system as big as the central nervous system called the endogenous cannabinoid system and it regulates health and normality. Bodies with lots of cannabinoids are in a state much more healthy

I had to come back one more time.. you talk about kids and marijuana and about them ending up in emergency rooms.. Gee what about the word alcohol being posted on numerous products that is not drinking alcohol.. you know like rubbing? or a bad batch of homemade wine or moonshine... Wow I can go on and on.. places like Oregon that has made it legal.. they sell it in stores and it's controlled.. no matter where it comes from, Spice will always be there for kids just like homemade moonshine... you talk bad about something and you don't even educate yourself
theBald1 (1 year ago)
superheavymetaldemon oh.. I get it now... you must be still blind now from that day because you posted it two times.. I'm sorry about that.. So sad
theBald1 (1 year ago)
superheavymetaldemon well you didn't go blind from smoking marijuana.. and if someone can't tell the difference between spice and marijuana.. why don't you do a little research on Oregon and well they are doing their with it? Lol.. blind
