  • Now that marijuana is legal in CO and WA

    how will they regulate it and how do you think the alcohol and tobacco industries will respond? Specifically coors based in CO. Also will the rockies now be called the smokey mountains?

      seriously though will people in jail for selling weed be released? Will they be fined? legal age of purchase? Driving restrictions? More accurate tests for measuring it in the system.

        Its a strange situation because its still a federal offense. The Obammy admin cracked down hard on legal weed in his first term, I would assume they will continue to do so.

          I think Colorado will limit sales to dispensaries for the time being. I think the wording of the amendment left it up to the Governor how he wants to set up sales. That means that the Governor has the power to make it available everywhere tobacco products are. If the population of Colorado doesn't screw it up, this could happen one day. I haven't read about the WA state amendment yet. I don't think Coors will go into the pot business until they think it will make them an extra $500 million/year. It wouldn't surprise me to see Philip Morris or Lorillard get into business in Colorado rather quickly.

            This is true, but there are still a ton of delivery service dispensaries. The state and local law enforcement agencies aren't prosecuting anymore, and the Feds really don't have the money to go after people who are simply growing/using for themselves. The Feds will go after people who try to grow and sell the stuff in large quantities, and that's it. Your typical smoker will now have little to nothing to worry about now that their local police won't be coming after them. It's not perfect, but it's a huge step.

              They will have driving penalties, much like alcohol. They will have to develop more accurate tests. Those in prison will not be released, because the system doesn't work that way. You are convicted for committing what was a crime at the time, doesn't matter if it has since been decriminalized. In Colorado they set the legal age of purchase at 21 and the legal amount at 1 oz. You can also carry 1 oz and give 1 oz as a present to anyone of legal age. I'm definitely going to fly to some concerts at Red Rocks.

                No I meant as it is a "new" product to compete with alcohol. Also who will be able to sell and will they be required to use an easy identifier for non tobacco cigarettes? I find this all quite interesting.

                  I see but there is a chance that the prison system will give them a chance for parole a lot sooner to reduce the amount of inmates.

                    They will allow people to expunge or conceal marijuana convictions. The Governor could pardon people if he so chooses. But most people don't do time for small amounts, unless they live in Oklahoma. Felony possession in Colorado is more than 12 ounces with incarceration of 1 - 1.5 years.

                      It was funny because I was watching ESPN and they were wondering how this would affect sports and I guess drug policies sports have. Kind of interesting.

                            How in the world would this affect them? Both states were clear that companies can enforce drug policies exactly as they did before this passed.

                              What will be interesting is when someone is fired for testing positive and sues that they were sober on the job and were terminated for legal recreational use. Who knows how that will go.
