    Recreational Marijuana For Sale in Colorado

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/politi...a3b_story.html

    "Marijuana sales commence in Colorado for recreational use"

    "The first-in-the-nation law was greeted with long lines at retailers and a lot of “Rocky Mountain High” jokes. But beyond the buzz, the measure represented the institution of a major new public policy in America — one that opponents fear will turn the state into a dangerous land of debauchery and that backers hope sets a nationwide precedent."

    "If Colorado is able to successfully legalize marijuana without causing a social backlash, the tourism, tax and other considerations are likely to compel several other states to quickly follow suit."

    So if you smoke it in Colorado where it's legal, then go home and get hit with a drug test where it's not legal, can you get in trouble?

    It's not really so much as having the substance in your system- it's more so to deal with the actual possession of the substance. For example, if you were to smoke in Colorado, and then come back to your home state where it isn't legal, you would not be in any trouble with your state government whatsoever.

    Of course, if you were to be drug tested via your workplace, you would face the same repercussions as always. So if you were to fail a drug test through your career, you would not face any legal consequences due to the fact that the drug test results are confidential between you and your employer. Usually, the consequence for a positive drug test in the workplace is a termination of said job.

    The real "trouble" would stem from bringing back any possession of cannabis. Once you cross state lines, you are no longer in any legal possession of the substance (unless you happen to live in a state with medical marijuana and you are a licensed medical marijuana card member).

    Hope that helps answer your question!

    This is a 7 min CNN clip from their "Ganja Pot Series." http://youtu.be/P9H0s3-71k0

    The remote reporter is enjoying her job way too much during the last 2 minutes. It's a fun watch mostly of senior citizens indulging with the new Colorado laws.

    I think its great, all the evidence shows that pot is no worse than alcohol if not far better. Criminal sentences and the black market are both big negatives while legalization allows tax revenue to go up without making a change to allowing children to smoke, that is still illegal as it should be. Just as alcohol is.

    Oh~snap thinks it is bad stuff! I have a wicked reaction to it. Dr. said paradoxical effect and to never touch it again.
    ??? I get a blood shot brain!

    Seems silly to outlaw a weed that grows in the ground.
    I get the whole debate.
    For me it just doesn't matter.
    Imo legal or not people will smoke it.
    In fact I think around 90% of the people I know use it at least a few times a year.
    Me, my dad, my son & one female friend are the only ones I know for SURE don't.
    Guess I should say 96%. lol

    I am hugely pro-legalization of weed on every level. I think a WS poll is a great idea! (and if I knew how to create a poll, I would)

    I don't have the right kind of brain chemistry for pot--it makes me anxious and self-conscious. I also can't really drink, seem to have an alcohol intolerance (I get ill, cold sweats/chills about an hour after drinking even on drink). Just not going to make it in substance abuse.

    But more power to them. Rather people were sitting at home eating Cheetos and watching tv than out driving drunk.

    I used pot while in cancer treatment. Didn't smoke it but made brownies and also made butter.

    I was reading yesterday that banks will not allow the dispensaries in Colorado to deposit money, since it is a cash business, because they are concerned the government will charge them. "... fear that federal regulators and law enforcement authorities might punish them, with measures like large fines, for violating prohibitions on money-laundering, among other federal laws and regulations..."

    It will be interesting to see what, if any, action the banks will take to change laws so that they can accept the money with out penalty.
