even if you dont like pot in the states its approved, Its good for the state due to the new taxes it will bring in. Washington State is super broke right now and the fact that it passed means that teachers and state employees wont need to be let go.

I am a firm believer in spending within your limits and low taxes, however until the goverment can get there(which it wont) taxes on pot is good for washington state.

#319464 Im against it being legal ever. Its too difficult to control. And with people already driving impaired for numerous reasons. I rather keep drugs illegal.

I can understand where you come from, Big Phramacy and industry has done a great job in demonizing marajania.

Keeping drugs "illegal" hasn't done a good job keeping drugs away from people. If they have wanted marajania they can get it. Therefore trying something new isn't a bad thing.

The Washington rules say all marajania sold in Washington, must be grown in Washington and that will help with quality control.

If your looking at Medicinal Quality's, It can be argued that Marajania is a safer alternative to pain relief compared to narcatic based pain medicanes (Oxycodone, Percocet, etc) which are synthetic heroin.

Before demanding it banned, or continue to be banned, it would good to see what is demeaned legal and safe according to the FDA. I wish that people would be as discusted with big pharamacy and docters for pumping in very power pscyhoactive drugs into children as young as 4 as they would be about the much safer for the human body drugs available on the street.

Obvously IMO of course. None of my opinions represent Civic-eg or its other users.

Pot is a gateway drug, and it can inhibit ones ability to opperate a car and heavy machinery. Im not all for prescription meds either other than antibiotics. But smoking in its self is a nasty filthy habbit and i appreciate my air space.

#319599 I'm with Apex on this one...I have been hit by drunks before, once on each coast. People have more distractions now more than ever and they are not getting any better driving so adding slower reflexes to the mix is not smart. Not to mention that shit STINKS!!!! It smells just as bad if not worse than cigarettes which I am allergic to. The bottom line is no matter what the "pot head" thinks, your driving is not better when you are high and you are not concentrating better..you are just slower moron!

#319607 pot being "legal" is only going to lead to more issues with our welfare system, be a HUGE issue with drugs in the workplace and on the road, and people are just going to get ignorant with the whole issue.


and most of you may not work in the "manual labor" field, but i do. and i don't need some dope-head climbing on a forklift, high as shit, trying to do some work. my guess is there are going to be many drug-related accidents and crimes.. now, more than ever.

#319618 I understand your veiws and dont like DUI's as much as the next guy, In the Washington bill thats covered by if you drive high, you get the exact same punishments as someone driving drunk. instead of .008 BAC its 5ng/ml of active thc in your blood, If they are high or have smoked/ate whatever in the past 2 hours then they will over 5ng/ml.

I think weed is a much safer outlet for people then alchohol or prescription drugs, If you drink way to much you can die. If you smoke to much you just see god and eat alot of deritos. Drunk people are also alot easier to anger then high people. Would you rather be in a sports stadium full of drunk people or high people? the high person will only take some pringles while the drunk person might punch me in the face for a bad call being made.

And a great deal of people are taking synthetic version of hard drugs already, but its okay as a Doctor gives it you.

Dont get me wrong, I dont smoke weed, I am not a "Pot Head." However there are alot more dangerous drugs out there. I rather someone drive high then someone driving on very powerful so called "mood stablilizing" drugs that are handed out willy nilly. Its best if anyone taking any mind altering drugs dont drive, but that will never happen. I will gratefully take legalized marajania over the synthetic heroin(Percet, oxycodone, etc) so prevalent out there.

If you dont like legal weed, stay out of Colorado or Washington after Jan 1st 2013. And its better for the places bordering those states as the "pot heads" you dont like will move to those states to get there chronic plants.

Also regarding people being "High" in public will most likely be viewed the same as being "Drunk" in public. If someones operating a forklift high, he wont be doing it long, just the same as if he was drunk he wont be doing his job very long.
