It's not like its hard to get pot anywhere else.

I really don't think people will travel very far for legal pot.

Remember boys and girls.  Even though it's legal where you vacation doesn't mean your boss won't fire your ass if you fail a surprise drug test when you return from vacation.

I've been looking into related stocks - seems like for the most part wall street has adopted a "wait and see" attitude.  There are a few companies out there listed but only one or two seem reasonably legit.  Nothing on the commonly traded markets - mostly OTC's.  I'm wondering if this will end up being like the gold rush in California - where the real people that get rich are the ones that work on selling the miners equipment, supplies and *cough* entertainment.

Here in Denver, folks seem to be pretty quiet about the new retail environment for pot.  I tend to believe that people largely are not interested and those inclined to use cannabis have had ready access to the stuff for years and years.  Again, I really think most people don't care or are a bit wary of a possible increase in an already increasing number of knuckleheads and dumbassery, overtly and insidiously (with the latter think THC-laden gummy bears, etc.).

Among the people I know who have red cards for medical pot, they complain about how expensive it is.  The retail stuff is going to be expensive, too.  If all goes well, that will be a leveling factor without a doubt.

I think the idea of pot tourism is rather stupid -- it's not like some tourists here aren't already stoned as they ski or board or stroll the 16th Street and Pearl Street Malls.  Local public radio stupidly tried to create an issue around the question ¨Where are tourists going to smoke their pot?¨, citing that one can't smoke in public or in one's hotel room, somehow imagining that no tourist ever got stoned before in Colorado.

As far as the possibility of anticipated ¨shortages¨ go, that's a bunch of nonsense.  I have no way of knowing for certain, but I have a feeling that supply will always far outweigh demand.  Any ¨shortage" will likely be artificial, created to jack up prices.

The one that cracks me up is the MADD-types who think that "now" there will be all sorts of stoners on the streets driving around all farked up. Sorry you farking head-up-your-ass morons, but we stoners have been driving that way for years - often lighting the bowl/spliff/blunt while driving.

Most places can't do drug tests unless there is a accident, and a drug test is required per OSHAA.
However, here in Minnesota, if you are drunk or high, and get into an accident at work, if you test positive for drugs or alcohol and say "I need help" you can't get fired

Maybe it's just a reflection of how much of a loser I am; but even when I was in college I couldn't find a reliable source to buy weed.  Back then, I 'knew a guy' who sometimes had weed.  And he'd sometimes hook me up.  And a girl I knew, she had a cousin who would 'sometimes' come out to campus and he'd sometimes sell me some weed.  But I could never just dial a number and get some weed.  I would have gladly paid for it....I just never could find someone to sell it to me.

When I finished college it got 100x worse.  I moved cities and got a 'nice' job.  My friends were all nerdy types and while we had accepted that drinking was fun, nobody talked about weed.  And once we started getting serious girlfriends and wives, the nights of closing out the bars turned into a few beers before calling it a night at 11pm on a Saturday.  I've had a few coworkers I've gotten along well with and even hung out with outside of work, but none that I suspect have weed or that would sell weed to me.

Admittedly, I've never tried THAT hard; but especially now, I have a lot more disposable income than I did when I was in college and I wouldn't think twice about the cost.  Ideally, I'd like a bunch of premade cookies/brownies and I'd probably want to get high 1-2 times per year.

If I were in Colorado and I could do it myself, I'd absolutely buy some weed.  But I don't want to deal with the headaches and risks associated with finding a reliable source and dealing with potentially getting busted.  So, maybe I'm the exception, but for me, that's an excellent reason to pick Colorado or Washington as a vacation destination.  I'm not much for travelling, but my wife is and CO has lots of nature stuff anyway.

I could be wrong, but you are probably young and have connections like I did back in the day, or are lucky enough to live somewhere where you've established safe connections.

I can't afford to shiat where I eat. Having lost all my connections when I moved across the country to take my first real job, I have essentially been dry for the past decade plus. I'm too old to be doing the stupid weed dance where you bring it up in conversation and see what kind of reaction you get, and I don't have connections with the locals not affiliated with my workplace. Not worth the risk, and I don't need it, I just absolutely love it.

I am only one point on the graph, but I have to believe that there is a large, silent group of folks like me out there who would happily smoke regularly if they could get it without having to worry about getting a criminal record and ruining their lives, throwing away their careers, etc.

I am a patient person. I have relatives in Maine where legalization looks imminent, and my work regularly brings me to Colorado. For now, I just feel a warm sense of satisfaction that sometime in the not too distant future (after the smoke clears from the initial cacophony that will undoubtedly arise when demand exceeds supply; I envision long lines outside of dispensaries the morning of 1/1/14 in CO), I will be able to walk into a store, choose a gram or two of a couple different strains, and enjoy not only a buzz, but finally being able to pick and choose strains that suit my mood. To this day I have no idea whether I've smoked Northern Lights, or White Widow, or whatever. It's like blind sampling microbrews and macrobrews, all in clear nondescript bottles.

I partook when I was younger---before getting married and having kids---but haven't touched the stuff since (though there have been many occasions where I would have loved to have had some pot on hand...kids do that to you).

The primary reason I've not smoked any is because it's illegal and I have a lot to lose now (e.g., my job and a child) if something happened and I got arrested/convicted for pot.  It's just not worth the risk to me.

However, if pot were legal here in Georgia, yeah, I'd smoke again.  In a heartbeat.

I guess it's just how much of a loser you are.

I don't smoke weed, it makes me really nauseous.  (Yes, I know that's not normal, but it is a documented effect for a small percentage of the population.)

But I could make a phone call and get it delivered if I wanted some.  And depending on who I called, I could probably get a free beej with the weed.  And I'm nowhere near CO or WA.

when Smoking, the high generally kicks in five to ten minutes after smoking and lasts an hour or two,
when eating the high kicks in after thirty minutes to an hour and can last 6 to 8 hours.

Also most people I know who have a "freakout" are eating it for the first time,  don't feel the effects quick enough and eat some more and by the time it fully kicks in they have over done it and flip out.

Furthermore, it will be interesting to see what the effect of legalization will have on alcohol sales. In the rare times where I have managed to get a bit, my beer consumption has essentially evaporated. They call this "substitution". And I love beer. I just prefer a weed buzz to a beer buzz and no longer mix them like I did in college when I'd get super wasted on a semi-regular basis. Weed is for my waistline as well - the higher quality bud doesn't give me the munchies like the Mexican brick stuff did; or it could just be that my metabolism has changed as I've gotten older.

It will leave the state, mark my word. They can't open every damned package that leaves the state, nor can they stop every damned car. Occasionally people will get busted as they do today, but the vast vast majority will make its way through; there really is no way around this without essentially destroying Colorado/Washington's economy.

In my experience, private sector employers very rarely drug test outside of initial employment screenings or tests after workplace accidents.  If you're working some random call center job or fast food or retail and your boss suddenly wants you to pee in a cup, he's just looking for an excuse to fire you.  Those tests cost money to perform, so they don't want to spend the money unless they must.  Cost/benefit analysis and all that.

Public sector work, especially public safety stuff like police, fire and military?  Yeah, you'll get piss tested a few times a year randomly, just expect it.  They don't want you being responsible for the lives of others if they think you'll be stoned when the excrement impacts the rotary ventilator.

CSB time/

I live north of Denver, and was returning from xmas vacation back east on Friday.  On the plane from Dallas I heard no less than six people discussing how they were thinking about extending their vacations, or glad that their trip went past new years just so they could buy legal weed.

The general feeling I get is that Coloradoans are are going to be Coloradoans.  Which is to say, the entire state is full of "do what you want just don't bug me" individuals.  So long as people don't start becoming a nuisance then we couldn't possibly care less.

Sounds like a place where you can afford to lose them.  On the other end, I've seen places where half the workforce smells like they just shot a cheech and chong movie.  Interestingly enough they're all low wage places.  I doubt they're going to be doing that much random testing.
 
2013-12-29 12:25:50 PM  
I have family in Colorado and what theyve noticed most of all is that when its actually legal, a whole lot of the associated paranoia just falls away. Youre not worried about the cops, or the neighbors. Its a more relaxed environment, and even though some of you hardcore guys might pretend that you dont care, it must be nice to live in a place where it's totally legal.

I don't smoke weed, it makes me really nauseous.  (Yes, I know that's not normal, but it is a documented effect for a small percentage of the population.)

But I could make a phone call and get it delivered if I wanted some.  And depending on who I called, I could probably get a free beej with the weed.  And I'm nowhere near CO or WA.

me texan: I've been looking into related stocks - seems like for the most part wall street has adopted a "wait and see" attitude.  There are a few companies out there listed but only one or two seem reasonably legit.  Nothing on the commonly traded markets - mostly OTC's.  I'm wondering if this will end up being like the gold rush in California - where the real people that get rich are the ones that work on selling the miners equipment, supplies and *cough* entertainment.


I bet they have the coolest and best attended stockholders meetings.  "Yeah, I propose that the company.....ah....Oh wow man, I forgot what I was gonna say....again.

I quit smoking in my 20s because it gave me a headache, and I finally decided the headache wasn't worth the high.

CSB.  When I was a teen working at a restaurant one of my co-workers brought in a batch of brownies he'd cooked at home.  Very nice stuff.  Our baker was a very nice lady in her 60s or 70s.  After a bit we heard her singing "Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner" as she baked.  I went to Mike and asked "did you give her a brownie?".  "She saw me eating one and asked if she could have one.  What was I supposed to say?".

She never said a word about it.

pueblonative: Bob Falfa: pueblonative: BizarreMan: Remember boys and girls.  Even though it's legal where you vacation doesn't mean your boss won't fire your ass if you fail a surprise drug test when you return from vacation.

if you're boss is planning a drug test odds were he wanted to fire your ass anyway, but is too cheap to pay unemployment.

Some places do random tests. I've lost plenty of people to randoms.

Sounds like a place where you can afford to lose them.  On the other end, I've seen places where half the workforce smells like they just shot a cheech and chong movie.  Interestingly enough they're all low wage places.  I doubt they're going to be doing that much random testing.


No, I've lost some otherwise good employees to randoms and post-accident tests. Honestly though, if you know in your job that you're going to randomly tested, you know it's just a matter of time until you lose your job.
As the saying goes, I've never fired anybody, I just do the paperwork. They get themselves fired.
