So you're saying the REAL money is in airport kiosks selling easy-to-swallow condoms?

So, question? How does Colorado's marijuana laws mash up with the Airports and the Feds. Once you're on airport property, you're at the mercy of Uncle Sam. Seems pretty silly to risk turning a recreational enjoyment into a federal felony.

Deliveries are ok, though, right?

This was why we needed it legalized here in California back in 2010 with Prop 19.  The money generated not only from direct taxation, but also through the boost in the tourism industry was estimated to be able to generate as much as eleven billion-with-a-B dollars per year.

I remember the vote, and some of the people most against it were weed smokers. They like the current system and the limited government involvement, and a lot of the growers were worried about what would happen to their role. I supported full legalization but I am actually happy that Colorado and Washington are leading the charge on this (like California did with medical marijuana). Hopefully they set a good precedent and Californians can craft a new proposition based on good precedents, and more importantly what not to do.

I'm curious if people with out of state plates are going to be pulled over with more frequency whilst crossing into the bordering states of Colorado. Could make a vacation through there a bit of a hassle, especially for someone who takes a small amount of travel stash with.

I once worked with an old hippie name Dave. For reals, his name was Dave. Anyhow, Dave told me this story several hundred times. He was in the Village one time, in a pizza parlor, eating at a counter facing the street window, and he sees Jimmy Hendrix. He farking loved Jimmy Hendrix. He wanted to go out and say "Hi, I love your music, man, blah blah blah". But he didn't. I asked him why. His response was "Because i was really hungry, man."

Dave was awesome.

Before all these body scanners came into the scene, it was really easy to sack a good personal dosage of weed on domestic flights. I always thought the body scanners real purpose was to nip that kind of the stuff in the bud.

If CO can show real profit then the arguments will almost be
Moot paving the way for the rest of the country.

I find it interesting that the task force reccomended not taxing the stores selling it. Wonder what the motivation is behind that. Also curious to see why only those under 21 would be released.

I just repack one pack of cigs with a few jays in the middle, do a neat job with the cellophane, and take 3-4 packs with me.

Not 100% on the newer tech, but I was told the foil liner pretty much blocks seeing the contents.

CSB: Went snowboarding a year or two ago in Breckenridge... my buddy split the condo with us and called a local dr to report his "altitude sickness". Dr made a house call to our condo, gave him a diagnosis, wrote a weed script, and left us with some medical nugs as well as our own oxygen machine.

Things he was able to purchase at the local dispensery were neat things such as THC soda, THC chocolate, and some THC lollipops.

It was an awesome trip.

"Once you're on airport property, you're at the mercy of Uncle Sam."

I get what you are saying but the airport I worked in was owned by the city. The more restrictive FAA regulation begin at the boarding gate or the TSA check point. If you get caught with weed there they are going to call the airport police, not the DEA.

Agreed. I've been self-employed for 7 years and work part-time at an ad agency and teach at a Community College. If they drug-tested at either of those places they'd have no one working there. : )

However, if I did work at a job with mandatory piss tests, I'd probably just stop smoking.

Thankfully, that's not an issue. : )

Well, one thing's for sure: They don't ever just pull over random people or go 'fishing' and write it up as legit later if they get a bite.  No sir.

I have to take a whiz quiz once a month for pain meds due to stroke and cancer treatments. After the test (which is at 9:15 this morning) I can smoke for one week then lay off for three weeks and piss clean every time. Self control isn't something most smokers can exercise though.

How much longer before all welfare recipients will be tested in orders to keep their benefits?  I know you can already lose your government housing for pot.  Feds don't like giving money to people that are breaking their laws.

The IT industry in the U.S. would be destroyed.

Story Time: I worked for a company out in Colorado as a computer technician while going to college. Being from Smalltown, Indiana I was more of a beer drinker, so being around a lot of marijuana was a bit unnerving to me at first. I mean hey, my entire life authority figures told me of was a horrible gate-way drug that messes up your life. So I believed them! Obviously after actually being around it and the people that smoked it, I viewed it as a relatively harmless drug.

Anyway, this company brought in the entire IT department and said how they wanted to begin a company-wide drug test (obviously this was their way of pre-warning us). Well, unbeknownst to be at the time, it seems most IT people are heavy smokers. This immediately sent the room into a frenzy. Out of the angry roar one of the main InfoSec guys stood up and everyone sort of stopped yelling for a moment. I don't remember exactly the way he phrased it, but he said something to the extent of, "I am college educated, wife, kids, never been in trouble with the law and have worked at this company forever."  He went on listing all her certifications, and experience and said how he, "Protects the businesses extremely private data as well as a slew of other projects and assistance.". Anyway, he finishes up all saying all of this to the executives and HR people there, and he finishes by saying they don't even have the first clue on how to replace him, and he added that the company would pretty much seize up after a day if they even got rid of a quarter of the IT staff. I've never seen a more direct challenge to authority in my life. It was amazing.

And in case you're curious, the drug tested everyone in the company except for: HR, IT, Finance and Senior Directors (and up).

On a personal note, I'm not a fan of the stuff. But I'm sure some people dislike my drinking, so who am I to cast stones?

I believe Florida recently legislated this. My understanding is that they found less then a single percent. It's almost like people without money don't have extra-money to spend on recreational drugs. How weird!

Yes, it actually costs more to test those dirty poor people than could ever be saved by said testing.  But it does feel good to force poor people to give up their privacy.
