WA state hasn't figured out how to deal with its new law. Smoking isn't allowed in a concert. But saw a jerk ( I know he was a jerk because he sat in front of us and thought he could stand up and dance through the concert!) smoking a joint. Security ignored him. It's just a new layer of problems. How do they detect whether someone is at an illegal level of "intoxication" when driving? Where do you get to "smoke" pot but not cigarettes? Second hand pot smoke is even more of a problem than cigarette smoke....this is nuts.

Doesn't "second-hand" pot smoke still contain THC and the other intoxicating chemicals?
So if you're driving a car, and your passenger is smoking something, better it be tobacco!

Evidence in Europe is mounting that decriminalizing marijuana has detrimental effects on the health of individuals, the health of society and the health of the healthcare system. And while many studies have concentrated on the benefits of decriminalization in terms of unburdening the court system, few studies have looked at the cost to the healthcare system.

That’s changed with the completion of a study that looked at drug use and hospital admissions in an area of London where marijuana use was decriminalized.
