It might be interesting to see if insurance companies begin to put riders on
health, accident or life insurance policies that limit or deny payment to injury
or death attributed to marijuana use. That might be a signal that actuarialy
there is a problem. Jury trials involving crimes allegedly
committed under the influence of marijuana may be interesting. Diminished
capacity defense? How to qualify a jury pool, if some are regular users, what
about potential for bias one way or the other?IMO, I think we have a
problem. It may be legal, but can you deny employment to a pot head? Do
Driving Under the Influence laws cover stoned drivers? What kind of field
sobriety tests would hold up in court?Should Utah beef up UHP
patrols on I-70 from Colorado and bust drivers for possession if pulled over?
Should Colorado have Dram Shop laws to hold purveyors of marijuana
liable for third party injury or death? This social experiment
could be really interesting.
In one case, 'more than the recommended dose'. In the other,
'possibly after consuming'. Everyone gets wound up about their
hot button issues and wants more government intervention, at the same time
ignoring things like cigarettes and guns. Both of which killed more people
yesterday than pot does in a month. If you don't like alcohol or pot, fine.
Go to church and find other busywork, but stop killing my joy just because
you're denied it. And no, I'm not a pot user; never have been.
Conservative continue to push the nanny state. Enought with all your goverment
Unmonitered recreational marijuana. What a joke. It will just get worse.
This is the way our government should work. Allow states to be the laboratories
for our country. If something like this works, others will follow. Looks like
maybe this might not be the best idea. This is an example of stupidity that
should give us pause and cause us to reflect on the harm that legalizing another
mind altering substance could cause. It should make us reflect on the
selfishness of such policies. Hopefully we, the rest of the nation are wiser
than our neighbors to the east.
"But pot doesn't hurt anyone..." When will they ever learn, when
will they ever learn.
Oh good. Because alcohol causes so many problems it is ok to introduce another
substance that causes problems too. Seems like it would make sense to limit
anything new into the environment that causes health problems? But what the
heck, it couldn't be any worse than alcohol right?
It's ok if people die....as long as the government is allowed to continue
to get the tax revenue from selling it.Kind of like the lottery, the
government (politically speaking) can't get income taxi from poor people so
they use the lottery to extract poor peoples money knowing full well poor people
are the ones who spend the most money on the fallacy of winning big in the
lottery.It's all good as long as the government gets what it
wants from the citizens.It's a shame people fall for these
deceptions and it is even more shameful that an institution set up to protect
citizens will exploit people for money even when they know full well
people's health, societal deterioration, and even death will happen as a
result.Anything goes for liberal progressives but we will all pay
with more than just our money.
