    Hey @mykel
    How is Canadiastan going to treat usage among people in "safety sensitive" positions? Pilots, truckers, etc. Obviously they can't be stoned at work, but what about testing? Pee test doesn't prove anything except you've been high sometime ago, not necessarily that it was a factor in any particular incident.

    Hey @Pesqueeb

    Not too sure to be honest.

    I know the legislation is basically a half filled framework, and that the provinces will fill in quite a bit of their own detail. I have not yet read the bill, nor have I come across any online conversation regarding this issue either.

    They are talking roadside saliva tests, but there is quite a bit of fear on how this is going to be leveled, so that long time / heavier users are not getting picked up when they have not partaken in the requisite time frames.

    No idea on time frames, but for me, my Medical Prescription Agreement requires me to abstain from driving for 4 hours from the time of last dose. :busted:

    Luckily (? :fie: ?) I am now retired due to my post concussion syndrome, so I don't have to worry about peeing in a bottle for work, then having to go thru the hassle of getting a prescription exemption ( if allowed ) from my place of employment.

    As long as they don't make me pee in a bottle to ride the lifts for DH or at the local singletrack, I'm all good.:drag:

    My understanding, is that saliva tests are much more like a roadside breathalyzer, in that the can determine that you are impaired now, vs. you smoked pot once sometime last week, like a pee test. The saliva tests are apparently much more expensive though. Perhaps that will change now that there is more of a market for them?

    Sessions seriously needs a couple bong hits of Colorado's finest and a lap dance from a hot black stripper. Then maybe he'd lighten the fuck up or have a an aneurism in the process.

    Dude here at work had a small accident and "bumped" into an airplane. Seems like it was a pretty honest mistake that would normally result in changes to training, procedures etc. However when asked for a drug test he refused and was fired on the spot. Not sure if the guy was in fact intoxicated, had some ugly demons or was afraid of getting pinged simply because he responsibly partakes of the legal bud.

    I really don't know what the rules and thresholds are. I don't operate heavy equipment but could get tested if I somehow hurt myself by tripping down the stairs or poking my eye out when putting on my safety glasses.

    I'd say it is futile, but I also said that about state level legalization. Probably not now, but soon?

    One thing the right does do with success is "energize their base" each election cycle with some emotional single issue voter subject, perhaps de-criminalization could be the left's standard.

    That's because it leads to jazz-listening and consorting with colored folks. REEFER MADNESS!! :panic:
