They can still fire you. If it is in your system how do they know if you smoked last night or smoked right before you came to work and got into an accident? That is the same as if you had alcohol in your system. Alcohol just flushes out quicker.

There is a hospital in Tennessee that does nicotine tests on employees and if you have it in your system they terminate you.

I don't believe it will be so cut and dry. I also think policies are going to vary wildly for the next year or two assuming the Fed doesn't drop a serious hammer on it.

That makes no sense. Having traces of THC in your system does not mean that you are still high. Same for nicotine.

It still BAFFLES me when someone who has never even tried it bashes it....I guarantee you Mr. future cop that if MJ was legal before alcohol was you would have the same view about alcohol becoming legal. And this is because almost anyone who has the desire to be a cop cant think for themselves and have to abide by whatever "laws" other people decided would be best for us. Let me guess you got bullied a lot in school and now you want some power to enforce? Think about how many people in the U.S. are PHYSICALLY addicted to alcohol and prescription drugs. As someone who has used medical MJ for IBS for years I can tell you sometimes it sucks ass if I dont have it but I dont fein like a pill popper or alcoholic would, I just have to deal with the pain and nausea. Plus the MJ side effects are nowhere near as bad as some of the pills they use to give me.

Bottom line: If you don't agree with it you don't have to participate, but don't bash something you obviously have no 1st hand experience with. Just because you dont agree with something doesnt mean you should take it away from everyone else.

Oh and not to mention all the $$$ this will generate and if all 50 states adopt this we could make a big chunk in our debt and not rely on the fucking Chinese for the rest of eternity....

Ok, but what about the military? How is that gonna go. If it's just like alcohol how can they say you aren't allowed to do it. And even so if you test positive you could just say you were in Colorado so it's legal?

Last time I checked the Military is ran by the Feds. So yes they could hold you to a standard that says you can not use MJ even if it is legal and fire you for it's use without a second thought.

Get over it, it is now legal in two states. The what if's will be answered by the courts if necessary. Nothing is going to change the State law. If you are concerned about it, don't use it. Last I checked this amendment gives you the choice to use Marijuana without fear of being a criminal. Whether you choose to exercise that right is up to you.
