They've been doing it to smokers and it's held up in the courts.

Again what you are talking about is not specific to marijuana, you have every right to sue someone who is impaired/distracted and hits you. The problem is the person's sense of responsibility and not the substance that is being used

Had a class today regarding marijuana if it becomes legal in Nevada. As long as it is federally illegal, you would get fired or not hired for usage. The company is going to step up the drug tests and make them more random and more frequent. The test to be used will be a 90 day hair follicle test.

One of the big pushers of recreational marijuana in this country is a Forbes 400 billionaire. I subscribe to Forbes, I found that out when they did the Philanthropy issue, what some of their pet causes were.

He's very careful about which states he picks to help get the ballots passed.

As far as marijuana impaired drivers, I'm just as worried about medical episode accidents. Read the paper, cause of accidents, and how many, in one year, are attributed to medical episodes! Last week, in the paper, there was a medical episode accident out near Anthem! Over-prescribed meds, no worries about that?

I can't see the NV legislature legalizing medical marijuana- look what they did with the pot dispensary laws, geez they spent months agonizing over how to make dispensaries look like pharmacies, requiring huge cash bonds, at one point they were going to require armed guards outside the dispensaries- and all of that happened with a Democratic majority in both houses, now that the Republicans control both houses (and most are really conservative Republicans) I don't think they will be jumping with joy over the idea of legalizing recreational weed...

A NV casino owner spent millions to prevent FL from passing MMJ. How stupid as it kills 0. But the drinks & cigs they encourage kill many of casino owners best customers. Maybe they are afraid cannabis would make gamblers too sedated to gamble? 95% of NV is Federal property without much population, so Las Vegas would be most of the vote. Tourists might feel they are there to gamble, & they might be willing to gamble police won't catch them with illegal pot? Or they can smoke pot legally in their home state in a day or two?

Maybe they should poll Reno area how they would vote? At least they have university students. In many states, police union bribes guv to veto any MJ bill legislators pass, plus bribes several in legislature. Maybe if pols don't pass it, voters should create a bill banning gambling? Best wishes, all!

What do you think the chance is they'll approve it in the 2015 Legislature session, or will they pass on it, and let the voters decide in 2016?

Here's the potential risk for the Legislature, as I see it, if they send it to the voters: Voters reject it, for some reason, perhaps by a very thin margin, CA and AZ approve it, and? There we sit, looking like a dork, by our neighbors!

They come to vacation here form those states, they run out of Pot, and? Where's the nearest Pot store?

"Ummm. You'll have to exercise some patience here! They're going to try once again in the 2018 election, and if it doesn't pas then, we'll try again in the 2020 election!"

There is a proposal that all pot users should be forced into treatment, brainwashed & given 6 months probation. Cost to taxpayers estimated at $2 trillion! See learnaboutsam.org/ Obama became senator in 2006 bought by treatment center owners. Short while later, Romney buys 140 treatment centers, using a corporate name. Will this be Obamney Care 2015? Not a bill yet, but there is bipartisan support.

Laws protect people more from imaginary dangers than real ones. Cannabis kills 0, alcohol close to 100,000 a year, pills used as directed over 100,000 a year-maybe way over. Tobacco kills 200,000+
Americans per year. Just think how many who needed something to relax chose the illegal drug(s) as they were afraid to use MJ as illegal & maybe they believed all the lies about the harms. Best wishes.

Law's, for the most part, are to protect people.

By your argument, crystal meth should be legal.... yep, cause that's just what we need. more meth heads

So is that a particular company, 1 out of many? The Feds have a voluntary program, where they help employers pay employee insurance if they drug test. Maybe just over half of employees do this & I consider them fools. If people need something to help them relax, they will choose alcohol, tobacco, pills, or junk food, killers, instead of cannabis, which does not cause death or serious health problems. So how could employers profit from this? Best wishes.

You missed one, Von! It's been proven, sleep-deprived drivers are on a par with drunk drivers!

Where I work, 2 nurses, in the past 12 years, having worked double shifts, had sleep-deprived accidents on the way home!
