If I had it my way, I’d surprise drug test everyone on the California house/senate floor…

Just legalize it already...

Just legalize it already...

Does anyone know whether drug testing is mandatory for state senators or representatives?  I bet you all this debate around whether pot should be legalized would be an easier one if we ran a surprise drug test on the legislators who don’t have big enough cojones to actually support it.  If it’s true that 40% of Americans have tried Marijuana, would it follow that a similar % of state legislators have?  Probably not, but I bet it would be at least 20%.  I wonder how many would actually be found to have traces in their system today?  Let’s at least decriminalize marijuana and stop wasting resources on enforcement and corrections.

Smokers have all the luck…

smoking area@seth3981 suggests through his Tweet that “if it were up to [him] smokers would be herded into communes in the woods. [We] could then live our own lives w/o their intrusion.”

Don’t you kind of feel like they already are.  I mean, I’m not really a smoker – OK after like 15 beers – but sometimes I feel so sorry for those guys huddled around the ash try in the corner of the parking lot.  They look so damn depressed – like they really hate the fact that they have to hang out by themselves…or maybe they just wish they didn’t have that nagging nicotene fit every half hour.  One thing is for sure, though; if it were up to me, smoking breaks would be unpaid…man, those 15 minutes really add up.  I feel like every time I go by the smoking area, the same people are out there.  Are they out there all day long?
