Why We Must Have Reformed Medical Marijuana Laws

No matter if your state allows the use of Medical Marijuana things like this can still happen: Hollywood Riot Zoinks! The Pot Vending Machine Has Been Stolen by the Feds!

The DEA can and as you see above will raid medical marijuana facilities and take all the medicine within them.

Re: Why We Must Have Reformed Medical Marijuana Laws

Ok...and?

I guess I just miss out on the big pot debate. For me it's real easy, you do pot, you apply for a job with me, pot shows up on drug test, I say bye bye. Same thing for my current employees, random drug test, you show positive for Marijuana, Bye Bye.

it's legal for medicinal purposes there... that's why the article said "they were/are operating with state licensure and were doing nothing wrong...

The more I think about the pot debate, the more tempted I am to go to Amsterdam to try it to see how "horribly bad" this **** is... I know a lot of pot heads, and as long as they control it, they function basically normally. I know a lot of binge drinkers that... don't.

You don't "do" pot. You smoke it. "Do"ing something implies a drug. Marijuana is not a drug. It's a plant.

You could be eliminating a lot of good potential employees over something that isn't even relevant. Not to mention, you could be hiring some guy that snorts lines every weekend instead or gets drunk every single night. Plus, any real pot head will pass your little piss test with flying colors anyway. It's only the occasional smokers that aren't as experienced in passing them that you will be weeding out.

Plus, my wife says that people who have never smoked pot should keep their opinions to themselves because they have no idea what they are talking about.

Re: Why We Must Have Reformed Medical Marijuana Laws

All my friends that smoke on a regular basis are worthless. They sit around do nothing all day and make ****ty grades. Hell, one kid has a 2.0 in ****ing business schol. How stupid do you have to be to have a 2.0 in business school? pretty damn dumb. All my friends that drink on the weekends are in engineering school and make good grades. So sorry, don't agree on the pot debates, I will agree that it is not destructive in the way other drugs are, so if sitting around and making $20k a year for the rest of your life is what you want - go for it.

Re: Why We Must Have Reformed Medical Marijuana Laws

i have some friends who smoke it regularly, but are very disciplined. they make good grades and arent always smoking it etc. they smoke it when "appropriate"...aka...not when they have work to do etc

i also know people who smoke it and are always smoking it, and they seem pretty worthless most of the time.

Well, I sat around and smoked all day in college and graduated with a 3.96 GPA in Computer Science and have a job making $60k plus a year at 24 years old. Maybe your friends are just idiots.

i know people on both sides of the fence. major potheads who's lives have amounted to jack ****, and those who are major potheads who are high up on totem poles as far as their career is concerned. I know some of my employees do it but its like dam, they are freaking efficient at their jobs, more efficient than most others combined; if we had a random drug screening we would be ****ed because we would lose all these excellent employees because they like to have a little mj after work to take the edge off.

I know more worthless sacks of **** that are alcoholics though, no employer tests for that though.

Re: Why We Must Have Reformed Medical Marijuana Laws

I agree, hell it is not really that big of a deal..Until it gets out of control! Now that being said both the bottle and smoke are bad if not moderated! Personally I am pretty sure the reason pot is not legal is because they can not tax it with offending the conservatives in the country!

Re: Why We Must Have Reformed Medical Marijuana Laws

most of the pot smokers i've know have been on the bright side.. i'm talkin about people that smoke a joint a couple of hours before a final in school and ace it, people that pop pills and write a 16 page epic poem afterwards, stuff like that. i've seen these things in real life. drugs affect some people differently. most people would take a ritalin and become manic and hyperactive; i take one and i seem to slow down by 50%

not to say that there aren't people that are worthless, but they'd probably be worthless even if they weren't potheads

Re: Why We Must Have Reformed Medical Marijuana Laws

So, if a person used medical marijuana, legally, and was efficient at their job.. you'd have nothing to say to them?

Re: Why We Must Have Reformed Medical Marijuana Laws

Smokin at the right time and place is no worse then having a drink IMO. I work 7 days a week, have enough Microsoft,netware,canon,cicso,compTIA cert. to paper a wall and I smoke every nite, AFTER WORK
On the weekends I run a paintball field, again I smoke AFTER WORK and when I'm stoned I won't drive or do anything that may but others in danger

Actually...if I'm not completely stupid from working....His name is also Herb.

And a little side note....my previous postings needed to have the /sarcasm added in there...I've met the man, the myth, the legend, in person...
