Looks like a splitter is going to start looking at Fed jobs in CO, and WA....woooooot woooooot!

HFT... Maybe your bosses will amend your local policy. I can only imagine how chill you are after a nice roast fest, hell that goes for Bonez too... You 2 guys would crush the chocolate milk and chip aisle after a serious Vapo session :headbang: :doobie:

I hope that those sitting in prison on cannabis convictions in those states see the benefit.

I'm very proud of the people of Colorado today! Not only did we take a HUGE step towards progress on the terms of personal freedoms and liberties but we are making big steps in allowing people to choose what type of government we wish to have. The people have spoken, no more wasted tax dollars on fighting against non-violent offenders for using a substance that has been proven to be less harmful than a number of already legal substances. The savings on law enforcement, incarceration and prosecution will be huge! Not to mention the social aspect of ruining someones life over pot. Then you add in the eventual tax revenue once the commercial rules are set up and there is a lot to be saved. Shit it's like killing 5 birds with one stone.

There are so many unanswered questions about what will happen commercially with this. I'm not sure how it will shake out. I'm optmistic that proper rules and regs will be put in place to create a good and thriving marijuana economy for our state. This isn't even addressing the hemp side of the law which also has potential for huge huge benefits. That being said I think there will be strong opposition from a number of counties and cities. Fortunetly this will only affect the commercial side IMO. I think that for the average citizen in CO that wishes to use marijuana responsibly a huge step has been taken.

Will the feds come knocking on every door of every smoker in CO ans Wash State? I just dont see it. I think they already would be doing so if they were going to. Growing small amounts for personal use is a huge privilage that we now can enjoy. Again I dont see the feds as being able or wanting to come crack down on people growing 3-6 plants. It just isn't worth their time. There are so many other areas that they are going to be focused on with real crime and real criminals.

I hope this starts a movement nationally but only time will tell! For now I'm going to celebrate this victory in the best way I know how :doobie:

I guess me and Keff should start soliciting dispensary's for sponsors for this years Silverton Splitfest. It only seems appropriate huh? Screw giving out shirts, doobs! :doobie:

I'm stoked, but I don't know the details on when we actually can go into the stores with only a license, any ideas?

But if we compare it to alcohol. It is not OK to show up drunk at most jobs so why would it be OK to show up stoned?

But this also means you should threat them the same so you can't start firing people if they are high But still having drunk people running around the workplace.

But if we compare it to alcohol. It is not OK to show up drunk at most jobs so why would it be OK to show up stoned?

But this also means you should threat them the same so you can't start firing people if they are high But still having drunk people running around the workplace.


Good point. However I work with a guy that is a dick if he's not stoned. Just sayin'.

Swedish Banana as I don't know much about drug testing but i think there are not any drug test that tell when someone is actually stoned, I thinks it just tells if THC has been in your system in the last 30 days plus or minus many factors. Obviously if you acting like a stoned fool that could be grounds for dismissal, but enjoying a smoke at night and showing up to work sober should not be penalized. I think that would be my concern.

In general I am very stoked about this. This sounds like great progress.

I am slightly afraid I can no longer bring any grass or paraphernalia from Colorado to Wyoming in fear of way heavier border patrolling.

well the problem is that its not the same (at least how the news stated it). You can drink 15 beer on friday night and go to work monday with no problem. but if you smoke up on friday night, then fail a drug test on monday, your still going to get fired. I was always told that it takes about a month to pee clean - i never tested this, but still, not fair to fail a test for something you did last week and are currently not impaired by.

someone feel free to correct me if thats not how it works.

edit : aaand brg beat me to it.

About ten years ago I was arrested for a DUI for weed, because I had a pipe in the car (it was a miracle that for once I actually wasn't high). I also had a medical card, but back then it was arrest em and let the judge sort it out policy. I was given a drug test and the result came back that I had THC in my system but probably wasn't high at the time, and I had the case dismissed.

This is a tricky subject though, because I smoked a ton of weed at the time, but had a really fast metabolism. THC stores in your fat cells. Heavy smokers with little fat and high metabolisms can test completely clean after around a week of not smoking, while someone with a high fat content and slow metabolism who doesn't smoke much can test dirty 30 days later.

The specialists all know this though, as testing weed has been around for a long time, and medicinal has been legal in these states for a while as well. If you get fired just because weed is in your system, you probably have grounds for a lawsuit. They need to prove you were high at the time.
