    You make too many assumptions! But, drug addicts that manipulate to get those prescribed opioids are going to make it super difficult for those who really need it to get it. The politicians are fixin to go apeshit over it.

    The same if they flunk an alcohol test.

    I, too, am employed in an occupation which uses drug and alcohol testing. The key is to not use either illegally.

    The marijuana industry, like the gaming industry, is not only a job creator but a revenue machine. It's important if you want jobs, a regulated drug trade, increased tax revenue for states and municipalities and a decrease in our prison population.

    Frankly, I don't see a down side.

    Yeah, it's not that important. We have TONS of issues that are in need of attention and pot is at the bottom of that list, if it's even on the list.
    Most Americans don't care if your nasty habit is legal or not.

    What a pity you cannot fathom multitasking. Tax breaks for millionaire isn't important. Eliminating health care for millions of Americans isn't important. Spending billions on a wall isn't important.

    Creating,jobs and enhancing revenues is important.

    Drug use is way different than alcohol. An addict is an addict 100% of the time.

    Employers are already complaining about the scarcity of employees that aren't addicts.
