So if cannabis is legalized (and I agree it should be), what do you think the age regulation should be on it for purchase/use? 18, 21, or other? What should be the legal limit and penalty for driving while impaired, a la blood alcohol testing?
Assuming it gets legalized for medicinal use first, (I doubt it will just be free and clear on the first vote) I think the legal age should be 18 and minors should require parent/guardian permission. Driving while impaired is a tricky thing because in order to enforce that you would need established legally allowable levels as well as a dependable roadside method for testing – both of which are currently not in existence. but let’s say for the sake of argument they did exist, I would be fine with the notion that “driving under the influence” includes cannabis as well as alcohol, illegal and prescription drugs. other practicalities that need immediate consideration? workplace issues like pre-employment testing, random drug screen testing (biggest bullshit invasion of workers’ rights), family law implications (claiming a parent is a “drug abuser”) and definitely, definitely, PROPER PUBLIC EDUCATION. no more lies, no more half truths, no more scare tactics and propaganda. and then we need some support for the farmers to be able to produce high quality cannabis domestically, restoring jobs and stability to the once thriving American farming economy.
