Cannabis legislation could legalize tasting rooms

https://www.csindy.com/coloradosprin...t?oid=10940827

"House Bill 1258, introduced in the Colorado Legislature on Feb. 26, and commonly known as the “tasting rooms legislation,” would permit both medical and retail licensed marijuana businesses to have an on-site establishment that sells marijuana products for the purpose of consuming them at the location. "



"The one big hiccup for locals in the Springs? Just like with Amendment 64, the individual cities can decide whether to enact this measure. The Colorado Springs City Council enacted the ban on recreational marijuana sales with a 5-4 vote in 2013.

A nearby business that may have a tasting room come next year is Maggie’s Farm, which is one of two recreational marijuana stores in Manitou Springs (and all of El Paso County).

“At a certain point, where are you supposed to consume?” asks Linden Mundekis, marketing director for Maggie’s Farm. “I think as long as it’s in compliance with state regulation … it’s a good thing.”"


Although I don't personally use or care for pot, I think that regulating its use like this is a good idea.

What do you think?

I wonder what a Cannabis "tasting" room would be like? Individual rooms with big fans sucking the pot smoke out? That would be pretty noisy. We'll see what shakes out.

What about driving home?

It's possible to have one or two drinks and drive home sober within an hour or two. But if you smoke weed, you shouldn't drive at all for at least a couple of hours minimum.

Amazed at the availablity of cannibas in some US states since I have been away a few years. In Singapore you get the death sentence for using pot. -)

I really don't know how this would pan out.

1. Tasting? Do different kinds taste different? Do people use marijuana for taste preferences? I only do edibles and they taste like a so-so fruit snack. Not exactly something you'd have to try just to say you've tasted it.
2. I don't really feel like socialising that much while high. I'd rather be stimulated by hiking or watching TV or listening to music while washing the dishes. It's too hard to keep a solid train of thought and remember details from 5 minutes ago. I think it's inhibitory to good conversations, unlike alcohol.
3. While I do it myself (in moderation), I generally don't like potheads. Or at least the stereotypical unbathed pink haired girl or dread lock man bun guy. I can't see a pot tasting room being a spot to meet quality individuals or potential mates.

About driving, I know this has been discussed elsewhere, but marijuana is a safer than alcohol. Normal doses (say 5 to 10 mg) are about like 1 beer. Higher doses than that and 1. you really know you are twisted and more importantly 2. You don't have your inhibitions dulled, more like the opposite, you get panicky, so you are less likely to feel confident about getting behind the wheel and you would drive slower. Both slow reaction times though. I know there's people who get in pot related accidents, but they are generally really baked. People drive while being tired too though, and that's probably worse than being high or drunk.
