Let's drop the middle man who so often gets in the way of expanding the agenda of the current assholes in charge of the federal government.

Might as well. A number of things have convinced me that the upside will far outweigh any downside.
One being this: there's a certain guy I know. Bit of redneck. Likes his beer, smoked a lot of weed. BUT, he's always had a full time job and took care of his family and been functional and a decent human being.
Until... he switched from weed to prescription pills to avoid getting caught in drug test and losing his job.
In a couple years he's gone from functional to almost rock bottom. He's had trouble with the law (he never did before), nearly lost his job twice (lucky bugger that he didn't), and has nearly alienated his entire family due to his crappy behavior. I'm not even telling the half of it.
He was way better off just smoking weed.

You can test positive for THC without smoking marijuana. So no.Now, having pot in your system, in a state where it's entirely illegal does tell us the suspect is willing to break the law, and has.
You can test positive for THC months after you've used marijuana and while you're no longer impaired. So once again, no.It also tells us the suspect's judgment is very likely impaired.
I'm going to need some evidence for this.Not to mention the suspect is usually a dealer, not just a casual user, something that will still make them a criminal even with legal recreational pot.

Yes. But as a compromise, I can live with letting individual states decide which drugs are legal and which ones aren't.
