So it looks like this might be on the 2018 ballot. How do you feel about it?

Studies have shown that teens use marijuana less when it becomes legalized. Significantly less actually. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.6e3904742f35 I understand wanting to protect your kids, but that argument has simply proven false time and time again.

If businesses choose to drug test their employees than the employees are mostly out of luck, unless they use it sparingly.

I think most people that have to pass a drug test for work won't use it. It's unfortunate and the laws should change. I have no problem with firing people that come into work under the influence but if you consumed cannabis on Saturday, go into work Monday and get tested and are found to have THC in your system and get fired...that's wrong.

I wouldn't want my kids becoming alcoholics, drunk all the time just because it's legal or becoming addicted to cigarettes because it's legal. But people who are going to smoke weed are going to smoke weed, legal or not.

I read your link but where are more studies since you said "that argument has simply proven false time and time again."?

Are you talking to me? People can make that choice for themselves the last time I checked.
