MFAWG: I'm so old I remember when legalizing the weed was a perfectly respectable right wing position, held by none other than the father of modern conservatism:
Giblet: You must have missed the news. That was tested back in the 1800's and it turns out that you will do what the United States government tells you to do. Strike the 4th, the 10th, and the 1st is limited to designated zones.
MFAWG: fluffy2097: hasty ambush: bwilson27: MFAWG: BeerGraduate: [www.ganja.com image 250x196]4 MORE SPLIFFS!!!!/of dopeSort of not kidding: being the guy that got teh weeds legalized would be a nice legacy.And it would make the right-wingers kill their own in rage. yay!Amusing as to what you think of as right-wingers[3.bp.blogspot.com image 300x300]The U.S. Department of Justice issued a reminder that under federal laws marijuana is still illegal. The Department will still enforce the Controlled Substances Act even in states that have now made marijuana legal for recreational use.And that is where you get into a sticky 10th amendment issue. "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."/This is why we had to get a constitutional amendment to ban alcohol.//Anthony Scalia has recently mentioned he's big on the 10th amendment. I wonder what he'll think of this when it finally bubbles up to the supreme court.Scalia tossed the 10th Amendment in a case involving TeH WEeDs at one time, IIRC?
gabethegoat: Blue_Blazer: lenfromak: Hate on marijuana all you want, but thanks to Washington legalizing it, 40 staffers and one pot expert now have a job jobsFTFYNope subby was correct: I job shared between 41 people who each work an hour a week. This is Obama's new ecomony.1/10
OtherBrotherDarryl: I wonder if people will stop being paranoid freaks when they're high once it's legal.
Muta: bwilson27: With weed, no such easy test to check if you're inebriated. This is a problem that will have to be solved first.Why does there need to be a test first? We didn't have tests for drunk driving when prohibition was lifted. Necessity is the mother of invention. If there is a need for a field sobriety test that includes weed then it will be developed.

special20: OtherBrotherDarryl: As Washington state employees, would these folks be WPEA union members and subject to drug testing? Ironic if that's the case.Think this through... marijuana is legal in that state where they are employed. Drug tests shows marijuana usage. Your point is?
