18. Kids are going to do it anyways, why not tax them on it?
It should be the same as alcohol
But alcohol should be 18
Legalize it and tax the bejesus out of it.
There is no reason that tobacco should be legal while marijuana is not. Can it be abused? Sure, but so can many other legally obtained drugs.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!

i really dont mind it personally
but as a business owner that puts a lot of people in cars and even eighteen wheelers, i'm against it
its too hard to test for on the spot and its just scary to have somone rolling down the highway with 90,000 lbs thats really hard to stop with a guy being high

**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
18 and leave alcohol at 21. More potheads than alcoholics would be a good thing.
good chance a stoned driver is driving more carefully than a sober one.
Good Stuff... worth reposting to make sure people read this.
What is the legal age to purchase cigarettes in the US? Whatever that is then marijuana should be the same.
However, for medical issues, I don't think there should be an age limit.
Marijuana is legal (in various forms) in 18 states. There are another 21 states that have plans of some type to put medical Cannabis on the ballot this year (not all will make it on the ballot).
We are headed that direction...it's just sad that it will be too late for many people.

irrelevant when it comes to liability in court
and the thing about DOT laws regarding any vehicle over 10,000 lbs is that you have to pass drug tests by federal law to have a commercial license. so, truck drivers etc in colorado still cant smoke
So what are you worried about then?
I understand... and I have employees that are driving 18 wheelers also.
Like most other new technology, it is developed by need. Currently there is no field test to detect if someone is under the influence of THC. THC can stay in your body for weeks or even a month (depending on the variety) but NOT effect your ability to drive, work, whatever.
We are a country full of very smart people. If there is a need, a test will be created. I have faith in that.
Not sure about the science behind that, but the effects of weed go away much quicker than those of alcohol. If a person smokes, they might be good to drive in an hour or two, whereas alcohol may take several more hours before you're sober enough to drive.
Just when I thought we were in total agreement.
you know as well as i do that if its legal in the state people will try to get around the other tests
good point and hopefully so
What an awesome website.
What I think he/she is referring to is the slight paranoia that accompanies the usage (so I hear). This usually causes a more strict adherence to traffic laws for fear of getting pulled over. Then again, if it were legalized, I wonder if this type of behavior would change.
I've gotten so much use out of that site.
So "truck drivers etc in colorado still cant smoke" wasn't really your point. Your point was that they still aren't supposed to smoke but they'll try to get around the other tests? I'm just picking up what youre putting down.
I still don't see how that should concern you, and it seems as though a little paperwork could be drafted up to CYA just in case.
Well... there are bad apples in every barrel
Exactly... if our biggest concern is that DUID (Driving under the influence of Drugs) MAY rise, well... that is a pretty easy battle to fight.
My God, we have so many bigger issues in this country that will probably never be fixed or agreed upon. This just seems like a no brainer.
People are dying and suffereing and we have someing that is cheap and easily produced and distributed. that can help...... What the fu*k is wrong with us?

Yes for medical purposes, no for recreational uses. Why? Because the effects will likely be dulled down tremendously and large industries will manufacture it in a similar fashion to how cigarettes are made and possibly have similar additives as cigarettes have.

No, dangerous drug and detrimental to peoples mental health. I think its a far more dangerous drug than most of the pro pot people. Do we really want to make it more readily available?
Out of curiosity, why is it dangerous? Do we have any studies that show that it's detrimental to people's mental health?
