It's much of the reason I argue with you about pot. El Padrino ain't got s#$% on GlaxoSmithKline



Nothing to really argue with me about on it.

I really don't care on pot anymore. I can see where people in real pain need it for the cloud effect. I think recreational use is a bad idea as I have seen bad, bad effects on people. Usually they don't even notice what it is doing to them. However, I am tired of caring about it. Cynical in my old age I guess.

The Mexican cartels are, once again, responding to demand.

Now it's for heroin, not weed.

The heroin epidemic is fueled primarily by the difficulty patients who were previously prescribed opioids for pain are experiencing now that the medical industry is tightening up on prescribing them.

Well, the bill passed.

The people have spoken, and they said "We want our weed!"

Recreational use is legal as of 1-1-17 in Nevada: see article about weed

Party on, Las Vegas!

Yes, but smoking or consuming in public is still against the law. Nevada Gaming also prohibits it from being used on any licensee's property. That means you can't use it in a casino hotel room either.

Give it time, and mj will become accepted. Just as alcohol was voodoo and perceived as 'very destructive to families' prior to its legalization in early 1900's. Now it is accepted and common place in society. Gambling was sooo sooo bad and only allowed casinos in LV and Atlantic City. Now, there are casinos everywhere you turn and look. Its not such a bad thing anymore, huh? The same will happen with mj. Get over it folks. When the government needs money, they will legalize just about anything and people's habits and perceptions will change over time. Next to come... Prostitution.

The 800 pound gorilla in the room here is Donald Trump, and the conservatives he is appointing to his administration.

Marijuana is still illegal under federal law; the reason states have been allowed to adopt and implement medical and recreational marijuana laws is because the liberal Obama administration has allowed them to do so.

That can change when The Don is inaugurated: no one is quite sure what he'll will do about this issue; he need only instruct the feds to enforce existing federal laws and the whole house of cards could come tumbling down.

Wow, talk about rioting in the streets.

More like chilling in the streets. "Whoa, dude, you're harshing my buzz."

Seriously, though,I expect States' Rights to win that argument.

A lot of discussion about the smell and how it affects fellow gamblers
I don't really think its really much of an issue
because
the actual trend is away from smoking the plant
and
going with concentrates
What is very popular is vape pens
They sell disposable vape pens and rechargeable vape pens
They use concentrate wax or oil.
No typical pot smell
smoking is old school

They should use it to treat alcoholics. A replacement drug for the booze. While the long term effects on the brain can be harsh, it's effects on the rest of the body are mild. Furthermore it can help some of the drunks, once again, become functioning members of society.
