fusillade762: DubtodaIll: When is big tobacco going to get in to the marijuana game? I remember some years ago they already had plans and packaging ready in the event that marijuana was ever legalized i.e. the Marlboro Green.

They've had package designs ready for at least a decade. They're probably waiting until it becomes legal on the national level. The feds would probably not look kindly on truckloads of joints crossing state lines.


yeah the market's not big enough yet, and not sure whether product will be smoked or eaten

so chance for some interesting craft rollers and bakers to get established and grow and experiment with a variety of marketing and production methods

and needn't be baked goods either

Anyone who is against this is an enemy of the medicinal marijuana movement.

B.L.Z. Bub: I thought the liberals were all about "legalize and regulate". Now you want it to be "legalize with no regulations"? I'm OK with that, actually, I just wish y'all were consistent.


Packaging is not regulation.   What do you do with other medications in the home?  You keep them out of reach of children.  They don't come in "special packaging".

They do unless I give authorization otherwise. The pharmacy is not allowed to sell me child-proof medication bottles without my express consent (never mind whether I actually have children). You don't call that regulation?

HindiDiscoMonster: fusillade762: Izunbacol: Do not smoke marijuana while using MARINOL. This can cause an overdose.

Considering the LD50 of THC is somewhere in the area of 1260 milligrams per kilogram I find this possibility unlikely.

actually, they have been quite successful at killing people with Marinol. MJ on the other hand has only killed ham sandwiches, funyuns, and gallons of water &/or coca-cola.


Citation?

And is it the Marinol that is causing the OD, or additional chemicals in the pill itself?

Gee, it's almost as if there are choices other than "all regulation is evul Big Gubmint" and "regulate it to hell and gone."

I'm curious to know the formula to the calculus you use to determine what is exactly the right amount of individual rights-violating regulation. Show your work.

I'm perfectly fine with this, not only because it seems like a common sense safety precaution, but also because of the prospective comedy gold of watching stoners trying to get a pot brownie out of tamper-resistant packaging.

I'm amazed at how many people here are complaining about the intolerable difficulty of opening a safety cap, as if they lack the mental ability to coordinate two different actions in sequence.  That, or a lot of people in this thread have arthritis or peripheral neuropathy or something.

But in case that is you... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lc2xoTuTQT8

HindiDiscoMonster: there is a reason that people use blotter paper or sugar cubes. the amount of LSD you use for a proper dose is not even one drop. it is the drop at the end of a pin. seems excessive to use what is basically an ocean sized brownie (compared to the LSD).


Dude, they're brownies!  Nothing is wasted except the eater.

And so does Colorado.

One of the recommendations is that it is packaged in child-proof containers just like prescription medication.

Seems the legistlature is going to drag this out as long as possible. No retail pot sales until next year (if not later).

Farking assholes.

I remember reversible medicine bottle caps; one side child-proof, the other a normal screw-on cap.  Haven't seen any in years.

"Next summer.  There's a lotta details to work out."

B.L.Z. Bub: individual rights-violating regulation


Yes, because your individual right to spew poison into the air trumps my individual right to breathe.  Your individual right to offer food for sale and not tell me about the delicious E. coli in it trumps my right not to get sick.

Yeah, I didn't expect we'd see retail sales immediately but Colorado already has a framework for medical sales. The voters clearly want legal marijuana for recreational use.

I actually don't have a problem with any of the recommendations of Hickenlooper's task force. Well, I disagree with not allowing a "cigar bar exception" for pot cafes to circumvent smoking bans, but I disagree with government mandated smoking bans in general. (Go ahead and ban smoking in gov't. buildings, but let bars and restaurants make up their own minds.....don't mean to threadjack here. That topic has been beaten to death so much in other threads I think it developed cancer).

So, what does this mean? Well, people will either continue to get marijuana through the black market or they will continue to convince doctors that despite being perfectly healthy and not even trying to get more mainstream treatments they really do have "back pain" or "insomnia" or some other made up bullshiat .

And the reason you're not going to Disney World until summer is not because it's really complicated to buy airplane tickets and book a hotel room - it's probably because the kids are in school right now.
