    Not so fast here in Washington:

    Marijuana: For many employees, it's legalization in name only

    Not entirely sure how this differs from rules against being drunk on the job. The only doubt I have is any assumed correlation between the remnants of marijuana being found in your body long after use and actually being high on the job.

    The smart money will still get their drugs off the street. If you ever want to have a professional job, you don't want to have your name on any store's ID list of recreational pot buyers.

    Any evidence there will be a list of recreational pot buyers? As far as I can tell, it's slated to be the same as buying alcohol. Nobody has ever made a copy of my ID or put my name on a list when I've purchased alcohol. This isn't medical, so I can't see this being a problem.

    If a Supreme Court can legalize abortion, it sure as hell is capable of legalizing drugs for recreational use. It's not IF they do this, but WHEN. Same with gay marriage, human sacrifices, or any other perverted activity.

    Might be meaningful if it weren't still illegal under federal law.

    Which Mexicans? The government of Mexico has indicated strong support for US efforts to decriminalize drugs. I'm sure the Mexican cartels won't like it, but I can live with that.

    So far, Obama has been a huge disappointment on the war on drugs...but I think he'll find it rather difficult to continue waging war on a potted plant in Washington and Colorado without any cooperation from the state law enforcement agencies.

    But this is true of just about anything (including smoking tobacco or drinking alcohol). If you live in an at-will state and your employer dislikes your personal habits, you can be fired.

    You won't need an ID; this isn't like medical marijuana initiatives where you need a card showing you have a prescription. Colorado and Washington legalized pot for ANYONE over 21, making it no different than buying alcohol or tobacco. And stores don't keep an ID list for those things.

    A quick google makes it appear that you're correct that the executive branch sets the scheduling of drugs.
    I may be wrong.
