    Colorado and Oregon legalize Marijuana?

    I see on CNN Oregon and Colorado have decided to legalize marijuana to people over 21. Got me thinking, do you think marijuana should be legal in Iowa?

    I'm pretty sure this doesn't change Federal law.

    All I know is recruiting just got a lot easier for school in Washington and Colorado.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    The federal government has no purview on this issue, whether it thinks it does or not.

    And hell yes, legalize it and let's spend our wealth fighting real issues.

    The NCAA will still issue drug tests and hand down suspensions for positive tests

    But the vast majority of enforcement is done at the state\local level. If it is legal at the state level, it will not be enforced nearly to the same degree.

    Just saw a show on TV about this (20/20, 60 minutes or similar). You're correct, the states that have legalized marijuana (medical or otherwise) are still in violation of Federal law and could potentially be at big risk relative to that.

    But, for now, the federal government has essentially decided to "look the other way" and have concluded there are much more important issues to spend their time/efforts on.

    An "expert" on the issue said that at some point, however, the two (state and federal law) need to be reconciled or there will come a time/day where a big reckoning will occur.

    Re: Colorado and Oregon legalize Marijuana?

    I watched a documentary on netflix called The Union or something like that about marijuana and it just blew my mind on the stuff. Initially I would not have cared if it was illegal but after watching that, I believe the stuff should be legal. I definitely recommended watching it to anyone who is interested in this kind of stuff.

    Re: Colorado and Oregon legalize Marijuana?

    There's a lot of info out there in news articles, but the main points are that CO state government is going to have to have a long discussion with the DEA on how this will be handled within the state, but on a Federal level. Technically it could be brought to the Supreme Court and repealed, but word is that this won't happen since most politicians want to avoid being the guy who reversed something passed by a popular vote. As far as NCAA, jobs, etc. it is still the right of your employer to disallow drug use, and I'm sure many of them still will. Eventually it will get to Iowa, but it will take time. This is almost exactly what happened during the end of alcohol prohibition - it doesn't happen overnight, but starts somewhere. I think it's an incredible opportunity to spend less fighting it and bring in a ton of tax revenue, and assuming this goes well and people realize it's not a big deal, I think other states will follow suit with the money swing being a huge factor.

    Re: Colorado and Oregon legalize Marijuana?

    This should be interesting to see how it evolves. I believe you can have 6 weed plants legally, so I think every college kid that smokes will have them growing by tomorrow. I doubt the economic gains based on tax revenues are going to be realized in the short term, but the cost savings on enforcement alone should be significant.

    Lot's of this going on today I bet...

    Be that as it may, it certainly is enough of a concern that I would think twice before openly selling, buying or using in those states.

    If your educated on the topic there is literally no counter argument. As someone said, the union is a great film on the subject that approaches the topic from all angles

    Oh and btw it was Washington and Colorado. However with Washington if you have any cannabis metabolites in you're blood you can't drive or you'll get a dui. So basically if you smoke, you risk getting a dui for the next two Weeks if you drive. So that definitely needs done work
