    Sooooooooooooo if banning assault weapons is pointless because it only punishes the "good people and the "bad" people will find ways to get it then why is it illegal to get marijuana?

    Really? I don't recall anyone in my teenage years refusing to drink because of the legality.

    When I was a teenager, I knew many teenagers that drank but didn't smoke pot (because it was illegal). I'm pretty sure the primary concern was that they could get busted for marijuana a month after smoking it. In other words, they couldn't just "sleep it off".

    It opens pandora's box. Employers and their employees potentially lose their right to a drug free workplace. Personally, I think what they do on their own time is their business. The only way it becomes an issue is when my safety is at risk because someone I am working with or in the near vicinity of is high.

    Was drinking legal or something?

    It doesn't make sense to me that a teenager would not smoke pot solely because it's illegal, but they would drink, which is also illegal for a teenager to do.

    part of it is the accessibility of it - even though it may be easy to get pot, it's still generally easier for kids to get their hands on alcohol

    plus it's easier to hide alcohol when you're drinking it than marijuana when you're smoking it

    What I'm saying is that legality is only one aspect that a teenager would consider. Accessibility is another. Alcohol is more accessible than pot. Also, they would consider the probability that they could get away with something. When you get drunk on alcohol, the drug is only in your system until you sober up. Marijuana, however, stays in your system for a month. I know I personally didn't smoke weed because my job drug tested. If marijuana was legal I probably would have tried it. Although alcohol was illegal, I did my fair share of underage drinking.

    Alcohol is legal. Does that mean your coworkers are constantly coming in drunk?

    To me the main reason that alot of people who would smoke that don't is becasue of drug tests by their employeer. Alcohol does not show up in a pee test. Now if pot was legal then who cares if it shows up? As long as you are not high at work, which I do not think will be any higher than those that come to work drunk, then it wont matter.

    I think you're missing the point of drug testing. It's not so much to see if you're doing something illegal, it's more to see if there's a chance you might show up to work impaired.

    True but if you test positive you have a very likely chance of losing your job. If it is now legal and you test positive and lose your job you have a nice little lawsuit. As long as you do not show up impaired they have no grounds to fire you. At that point it would be the same as firing you for having a beer with dinner but never showing up to work drunk.

    It may not make sense, but there are kids who feel that way.
