three cheers for california!

Marijuana is now legal in the state of California and a few other states. I applaud this move. I am glad that the arrests and criminalization are coming to an end. The ingestion of narcotics should be treated the way we treat alcohol. It should be legal and you should only be prosecuted if your behavior endangers others. And if you harm yourself, go see the doctor. You shouldn’t go to prison. Let’s hope this is part of a bigger trend.

  1. I’m sure these state-level legalization laws are concerning for employers in the industrial space since drug use is concerning from an insurance & employment policy perspective.

    My understanding of marijuana is that it shows up in a user’s system far longer than alcohol. For employers who have drug testing policies after any sort of workplace accident it’ll be interesting to see how these laws impact the work force. A drug user could be sober on the job but negatively impacted by these testing policies since the drug tests can’t (to my knowledge) screen for whether or not drugs were a factor in the accident.

    I suspect that we’ll start to see some disparate impact on drug users in more industrial workplaces versus office jobs.
