I have a fair bit to say on this topic.

First, if you're staying in a hotel room and want to smoke out, do so in the stairwell. This advice is mainly for Vegas, but I think could apply to anywhere in the US. I don't want to admit too much, but I will say that if a hotel employee catches you, I doubt anything will happen. They would rather you do it there than stink up a hotel room. Finally, if you're partaking with a friend, have one person go in first by himself and then try to get out. Sometimes you can enter the stairwell but can't leave it on the same floor. If this is the case, prop open the door with something.

Second, somebody commented on smoking in Vegas hotel rooms. Once I was in line at a hotel front desk and the guy in front of me was having a big argument about a cleaning fee being added to his bill for the smell of marijuana. He denied it and then the receptionist produced pictures of pipes and marijuana in the room, taken by the maid. The guy was clearly caught in a lie, but he doubled down saying that while he had all that paraphernalia out, he didn't actually smoke anything. When it was finally my turn, I approached the counter laughing and the same receptionist just rolled her eyes, as if she has had been through that routine many times.

Third, a friend of mine got a DUI for marijuana in Vegas. She got pulled over for speeding but the cop smelled marijuana and arrested her for that. I think the cop intimated her into submitted to a blood test. To make a long story short, she spent about 16 hours in jail, had her car impounded, and lost her license for a while. A DUI attorney, who charged $2,000, plea bargained it down to about a $1,000 fine. My point being is the DUI arrests for marijuana do happen. Perhaps the legality could be challenged in court, but it's cheaper to hire a DUI attorney to plea it down and get on with your life.

When I smoke dope in my casino room I do it in the bathroom only, with the exhaust fan on and a towel on the floor sealing the door gap.

I don't smoke copious amounts (don't need to with the great weed available these days) and when I exhale I aim up into the exhaust fan.

Never had any problems, the room seems to remain smoke free.

I bet, have heard of those stories. I'd be tempted, but would be too afraid of picking a poisonous cousin look-alike. Guess I saw a youtube video, it made me interested, never really thought of it.




You could just grown your own shrooms to avoid picking a poisonous cousin.

I don't think so. They're a very illegal drug, would never do such a thing when they could theoretically be purchased so cheaply. I say theoretically, because I don't know anyone with drug connections, let alone anyone having spores. I most likely am just curious about the whole thing, nothing will come of it. I do have a lot of wonder lately in mushrooms altogether, they're very interesting, an ancient lifeform. Paul Stamets has done a lot of interesting things with them, mushrooms are very precious. It's so interesting how they and other plants communicate, and how intelligent they really are.

IMHO it will eventually fall into "DW/AI" or "driving while ability impaired" unless they can get some kind of standard. We can measure BAC, but pot is going to be way more tricky to make a legal term from what I have read. So they will make it same as if you take too much cough syrup and get behind the wheel.

And that would be a reason to hire the attorney. It will be the second most expensive joint anyone had in history.*


*The first was that RB in the NFL who lost a multi-million dollar contract because he preferred to smoke weed to working.

I wonder when the player's union in the NFL will start lobbying heavily to allow cannabis to be removed from the list of banned substances players cannot take?

Given the movement to legalize it across the country I suspect it will happen someday.

You should seriously look into vaping concentrates.

IMO itís by far the best method of consuming THC.

Little to zero smell, and itís very easy to conceal. No one would know the difference between a MJ concentrate vape pen and a regular nicotine vape.

A big issue with testing for marijuana is that it stays in your system for weeks or months. The best test for being driving impaired may be the basics -- like standing on one foot and touching your nose while looking straight ahead.

Or the "munchies test:" the cop pulls you over and if you're glassy-eyed he holds up a Krispy Kreme donut in front of you to see if you salivate, lick your lips, and / or reach automatically for the tasty treat. :)

Like you can trust a cop around a donut. : )
