Colorado and Washington State stepped up, or stepped down depending on your perspective and voters said you can use a little pot and not be arrested.
Now they are trying to figure that out in light of the Federal mandate that says any amount of Marijuana is illegal to posses or use.
You don't want to be the only guy in the room who says legalize pot, but by an large American people have used it for 50 years and don't believe it's dangerous.
Thus we have Americans who don't believe the Federal rhetoric. What's new about that? So what about legal weed?
Two states are testing it, and that's a good thing. Alaska tried it earlier only to re-criminalized it saying youth weed use went way up. Things have changed now, it's more acceptable in the medical community and people are finding a value in it, to get through chemo.
Here is an idea that I have promoted for years. Let those who want the weed grow one plant for their own use, treat it as we do beer making and wine making. As a government forget profiting from it, just take the criminality out of it. That means less street gangs peddling dope and a crimp in international drug trading and our streets a lot safer.
Finally, what do you do about people who want to work and use? For now you can't use and work, so play by the rules. Down the road it might be treated like alcohol, where you can have a beer or glass of wine at home but not on the job.
Weed in your system would not pre-preclude you from working as it does now. That is down the road, so for now you can use pot, but you can't work?
