    when you started using and stayed in that state and that is responsible use.

That is the problem as I said before, once you start using you're being impaired. That's a fact.
    Could be. There could be an emergency while I'm asleep and I not know, there could be an emergency at any given moment and I cannot "contribute". The world of hypotheticals is infinite here..

    And the more you use the worse your impairment. That is also a fact.
    Sure. So what? The more McDonalds I eat the fatter I become over time.

    I already addressed this, I said as a society we want our cars, alcohol, pot etc and are willing to accept the consequences. The consequences are deaths and innocent deaths.
    So since Marijuana is legalized in Colorado one would expect drug related driving fatalities to increase? Correct? Instead the opposite happened. Since marijuana legalization, highway fatalities in Colorado are at near-historic lows - The Washington Post


    I see it the same as alcohol, both can be misused and tragedies happen because of its use, however we've accepted that fact. Mind altering drugs has been around for all of mankind and we as a society accept that to a point.
    So yes or no?

    Nobody deserves to be in jail for using drugs, but even taking into consideration the appalling nature of the drug war and its victims, there is something incredibly narcissistic about making one's drug use a civil rights issue (even if, admittedly, it is) when people have real problems they didn't choose, such as lack of access to jobs, shelter, health care, education, water or electricity. Those are real problems.

    Re: Should Marijuana Be Legalized Nationwide?

    I voted "yes", with the caveat being "legal" in the same sense that alcohol is "legal".

    Age restrictions, driving restrictions, working restrictions, ......those kinds of things.

    Marijuana laws and "legality" should mirror alcohol laws and legality.

Here, let's do a simple test on just how absurd your understanding of this subject is:

    If person X smokes weed for 6 months, quits for a week and then tests positive, are they still stoned? Take your time answering.
    Yeah, you throw out all this but fail to understand what the hell they are talking about. Forget urine and company drug testing, as I've been trying to get across to you. Those tests only indicate presence or lack thereof. Look at the blood column of the Norml chart you posted. How long is pot detectable in the blood, even with regular use?

    We can and do determine amount of THC by blood test. The discussion now is what reading will be considered legally impaired. And again, you show you misunderstand the medical term tolerance or this issue.

    Typical from you. No, I didn't. I was speaking generally as were YOU. Now if you wish to be specific about it, offer up some cases.

    Legalize it, make it available to those only over 21 and have the same laws applying to alcohol intoxication (driving, etc) also applying to marijuana.

    Same thing

    I have said many times now society has accepted that fact. Our society wants deadly cars, alcohol, pot etc.

    Sure. So what? The more McDonalds I eat the fatter I become over time.
    I'll say it again, our society has accepted that fact that their are going to be people that overeat and that become government dependent. Except Michelle Obama.

    I believe with Marijuana vs alcohol, using marijuana you are in a state of just being a couch potato, not willing to do anything, let alone drive.

    I have no idea what your are trying to get from me. Cars are deadly, alcohol is deadly, pot is deadly as well as all drugs and you have conceded that fact. And I will repeat one more time for you. Society has accepted the fact that all these things can be deadly but we want our cars and drugs more than the consequences of using them.

    Now continue on with your rant with someone who cares.

    Society as accepted the fact that using marijuana is worth the consequences of it's effects.

    Should marijuana be legal. Not only should it be legal, but it should be legal to commercially grow it. The whole process should be legal and managed no different than any other agricultural product.

    A side note: Can you imagine how many more illegals this industry will employ.

    That aside, the taxpayer will always at least partially, remain on the hook for your personal behaviors legal or not if they impact anyone other than yourself, and that's almost always the case.
    You are right, I don't know jack about drugs except the fact that I have seen them destroy people's lives. I've seen kids live in poverty because their parents spent the money on getting high. And more times then not those who used drugs had trouble holding onto a job. It is getting a little stale seeing people make poor choices and their poor choices cost everyone who still pays taxes.
