    It seems these consecutive sentences are contradictory. Are you high?

    People can be recreational smoker and stellar employees. The rare instances that I see work being impacted by high workers are employers that tolerate that kind of stuff. I'd venture that better than 90% of people that smoke don't go to work high. The law didn't make it illegal to fire employees for being high, just like its not illegal to fire someone for coming to work drunk. I don't think the legalization of marijuana will change the workplace at all, other than more people admitting they smoke in the evening or weekends.

    Just like it does for all those raging drunks we have to deal with at work every day...

    Maybe gay folks feel like they have been supporting your life style through the taxes they pay for a long time. As far as I know there's no tax credit for being gay. I'm sure if there was Mitt Romney would be waiving a rainbow flag and dancing in every pride parade from here to the Cayman Islands.

    While I suspect most Washingtonians have nothing to fear from the long arm of the federal authorities, any enterpeneurs contemplating being a part of this industry want to pay really close attention to Title 26 USC ยง 280E - Expenditures in connection with the illegal sale of drugs. The IRS is playing hardball at the moment http://www.forbes.com/sites/anthony...es-war-with-the-medicinal-marijuana-industry/

    It's still perfectly legal for employers to drug sceen employees. Also, the feds are going to crack down on the growers that supply the shops, just like they are doing now with the medical growers. This law didn't legalize weed, all it did was give the feds a nice neat spreadsheet of all the major growers in the state that try to go legal. Beats the hell out of searching through power and water bill records or flying airplanes with IF equipped cameras.

    Anyone buying weed from the state shops with a credit/debit card will be databased. Anyone know if a warrant is needed to pull this data? If it isn't and you are in the State POS database....drive a car registered in your name and commit a traffic infraction and see what happens.

    Leave it to Washington State to pass a law that still requires you to break the law in order to participate in the activity that was just legalized. Brilliant!!!!

    Every DWI for drink generates $5K + per conviction for the state and participating private sector entities. They just more than doubled market share.

    How about two new subfora- one for NFRs and one for political issues. Mods can move any misplaced threads to the proper forum and life will be sweet and gentle again.

    I must say, most of you are pretty awesome, and I'd totally marry you if I were gay.

    For the rest--I'd have to get really high first, then stay really high for the entire marriage to make it work.

    You can't grow it. You can't sell it. I've been outside all day waiting for some to fall out of the sky so I could partake in a legal activity. All I caught was a cold...

    The best legal activity always starts with a little illegal activity.

    Rob, if by poly you mean polygamy then that would require a tax process alteration. Two dudes, married, file jointly or as individuals, whichever they prefer. Two ladies, married, file jointly or as individuals, whichever they prefer. One dude and one lady, married, file jointly or as individuals, whichever they prefer. All the same today as it has been forever to the IRS.

    One polygamist (and I'm wagering you think that the polygamist has to be a dude) and two, three, thirty spouses (with gay marriage rights of any sex or combo of the sexes)...totally different tax structure based on a household earning variable not accounted for in IRS tax law.

    Not the same. You don't make sense to me, and for the record, I'm not gay, not a pot smoker or scared of those that are so long as they are following the laws of the state of my chosen residency.
