    Mary jane will not be legalized because within six months no one would be buying it as all that wanted it would have plants growing. The only thing I see stopping the growing is the 1 OZ. possession limit. No doubt they thought that limit out pretty good or maybe I am giving them to much credit here. Just like brewing your own booze is limited. This limiting put in place to keep sales competition down for producers. One plant I imagine would supply a person a long long time for free.
    Face it more money is made by keeping it illegal and that is why it will stay illegal.
    As far as potheads causing more wrecks I really doubt that. Most wrecks would probably be from getting rear ended for going to slow. Speeding is usually not associated with pot use. Booze IMO is so much more dangerous than weed.

    Anyone seen the movie"Refer Madness", made in the 30's I believe, to try to imply the use of weed as being so dangerous. No I don't advocate drug use but the perscription drugs people use are far more dangerous than weed IMO.

    In the old days ether was administered by licensed anesthetic doctors for operations because ether is so dangerous. Guess what the difference is between ether and alcohol. Alcohol has water in it and ether does not. When you hear of alcohol poisoning that really is the brain and body parts were anesthetized to point of death. That is a fact parents should be aware of rather than only worry their kids are smoking pot.
    The thought I want to make is that marijuana is not even near as dangerous as alcohol but alcohol is legal. But the propaganda machine wants you to believe otherwise. The machine is focused on people that have never tried marijuana because those that have know the manuer the machine is speading.

    I for one NEVER said it wasn't addictive, sugar is addictive too, ya'know?
    I said it is NOT AS BAD for you as cigarettes or booze, I personally think all smoking is bad for you.
    That last statement is an assumption, and may I point out the amount of time for a human body to rid itself of the effects of smoking cigarettes?
    The ONLY reason for the test is because it was made illegal, once legal, it won't matter.
    The number of fines for smoking in a public place is high in many downtown areas that don't allow it. Same thing, same problem.

    legal (sort of) here in WA now also. personally, I'm glad to see it pass as I hope the feds will stay out long enough to free up law enforcement to go after more hard core crime than someone smoking dope and falling asleep on their couch.

    people who smoke weed don't go out on killing sprees or do crazy nonsense. And the fact is, weed is easier to get than even alcohol by minors (or anyone for that matter), so legal or not, people are gonna do it. (that doesn't make it right, but I'd rather see LEO's go after all the meth heads and violent criminals first).

    It's going to be a growing pain ( no pun intended) here with plenty of speed bumps along the way.

    my big issue is how do you test if someone is driving high on weed?

    the 'Evergreen state' has a new meaning now...
