If weed were legal where you are for social and recreational use...

I'd open up a joint rolling factory
That's your problem Pit, you live in your head. Realistically, and I say this without malice, who is going to finance the opening of a factory ran by a nose pierced, trainee pornstar?
How are you going to build a workforce, by accepting all those "sycophants" on Facebook?

It should be legalized, regulated and taxed.

That being said, I still probably wouldn't smoke it....my employer could still let me go if I tested positive. :shrugs:

Right, that brings up an interesting point. If it's legalized, and all the proper legislative (state/federal) and agency hurdles are jumped with success, would employers be able to legally discriminate against employees for smoking weed? Can an employer discriminate against employees who drink alcohol if it isn't affecting their work performance? I'm not an expert, but given what I know about labor laws in the US at least, you can't get fired because you and a few friends took some whiskey shots at a bar on Saturday night. I'd think similar logic would be applied if you smoked a joint in your buddy's apartment while playing video games.

That's a good point. But I'm sure it would take labor laws a few years to catch up...so until then, no smoke for me.... :lol:

How can you patent rolling you fuckin' wally, don't you think Rizla rather beat you to the punch when they invented 'the rolling machine'? :lol: Other than that what you gonna patent, the concept of having one side of the skin facing downwards when you rack up so it comes out a cone? :lol: Or the roach perhaps?

Honestly Snakes, have a fuckin' word with yourself :lol:

An employer can in fact fire you for taking some shots on a Friday night. If they have an alcohol policy they could theoretically give you the 72 hour test and fire you, but no company bothers to. Any employer can still drug test you and fire you for weed, and ANYTHING that receives federal funding will use that as an excuse anyway. Places still drug test here in Washington, and will continue to do so.

I debated on editing the post just for that but it didn't seem worth the effort.

I don't think I would even try it. Drugs are not the key to happiness and cost too much lol.

The key to happiness? You're over thinking it fella. Why does everything have to be such a grand gesture? What's wrong with it just being a laugh?

Great point actually. I guess I would drink a lot more if hangovers did not exist. It's like you get several hours of pretty cool fun time but the next day will be total shit.
