    you can lie to your insurance company about smoking tobacco because they don't test for it, but they can catch thc.


    so they could raise your risk rating and make you pay more i'm sure.


    They absolutely do test for tobacco, what's worse is that typically it's done posthumously, so if I think I'm being a smart ass, lie about smoking and die in a car accident and they test me for tobacco use they can deny life insurance claims, so yeah, good luck with that.

      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 don't think this really competes with alcohol, honestly it'll probably increase alcohol consumption if I've learned anything from experience...

        A lot of companies actually purposefully exclude marijuana from the testing.
        Never heard of that. Is that a CA thing ?

        A hair folicle test can tell every drug you did going back 5 years.

            I think it's common in California just because so many people do it that organizations would have a hard time keeping their best workers employed if they adhered to strict drug policies. Most companies don't use the hair follicle test because it's very expensive. It also is only as effective as your hair is long.

              Also the cheek swab doesn't seem to work very well. I had a coworker who didn't know he was to get cheek swabbed on his first day and had smoked weed in his car before he came inside, and he STILL passed the swab test.

                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?

                Coors is no longer an American company

                  That's not true, Dan.

                  Its actually a hair analysis. They test the hair shaft itself

                  Also, the detection window is only 90 days. They only cut the first 1.5 inches from the scalp... each .5 inch represents about 90 days assuming your hair grows at the average rate of .5 inches per month.

                    i don't like this at all. i am immediately regretting colorado and washington's decisions.


                    I'm not saying you but that moment of irony when pot smokers dreamed of weed becoming legal and then realizing the financial implications that they will make no money selling it anymore.

                      It's been decriminalized in my city. I will be a $25 fine if you get caught with weed.

                        It's been decriminalized in MA too and is a fine for less than an ounce if caught.

                          Gee, you haven't followed this at all have you?

                          Ya, he a pothead

                          I don't smoke pot at all, but I do realize that marijuana is probably the best resource on earth, and our greedy government keeps it illegal to keep Exxon and other corps in business.
