Can an Employer in Colorado Test Employees for Being Stoned?



What is the speed limit on Colorado highways?

Since pot is now legal, how will the worker compensation laws work if someone hurts themselves while working around machinery while being stoned?

If I have a beer or two at lunch, I have a pretty good idea how it will effect me. What happens if someone fires up a joint with some new hybrid grass; how will that work after lunch?

What about truck drivers, nurses, machinery operators?

  2. Answer should be yes.

    Big long toke or two on some of this new stuff -- I have read --- puts one away for two or three hours.

    Employees will be taking siestas in the mornings, afternoons, late shifts......

    You want a stoned worker checking the rivets on an airplane manufactured in Seattle.......?


    And, what about the cops? What's to keep them from getting stoned too? On the job.

    What's that old song......everybody should get stoned.....:)

    Teachers stoned, students stoned.......SAT scores sink like stones......

    Borrowers and lenders all stoned.......barbers stoned....cabbies stoned.......bakers stoned......the box boy stoned....bricklayers stoned.......no end to it.......

    Miss T stoned....? Fely stoned....? Old man Redinger stoned......?

  5. “That is awesome Meltema, I just need a couple more things, six bottles of Coca-Cola and a spliff.”

    This brings an even bigger grin from Meltema than when we had first met.

    “We do have the ganga,” she said. “I will be right back”

    With that she went into the back of the building, returning in just a couple of minutes with a pail, ice, six Cokes and a small cigar.

    “This should do you for the main course, Mr Dessert, enjoy yourselves.”

    “Thank you Meltema, I do appreciate the service.”

    I took the supplies and headed back to 'Honeymooner Heaven', taking a seat on the porch I then propped my feet on the handrail and opened a Coke. The sun had set and a gentle breeze was coming off the water, Over at Maxi’s the lights were on, with people coming out onto the veranda, the night was young.

    It was not ten minutes later when Jean came out through the door, rubbing her auburn hair with an orange towel. She was wearing a baby blue t-shirt, long enough it covered her ass, provocatively.

    “You don’t happen to have a lighter in your pocket, do you?”

    She ran her hands down her sides, back then across her butt and forward over her hips

    “No pockets.” she said with a smile “There are matches on the table, let me grab ‘em.”

    No bra or panties, either I thought.She walked into the room, gone for just a moment. When she returned to the doorway she tossed the book of matches into my lap. I torched the spliff, the sweet, pungent aroma wafting across the night air.

    “Get that from Meltema, or did you pack it in from the States?”

    “Meltema is my Costa Rican connection,” I said after exhaling a lungful of smoke,
    “Bringing smoke to the topics would be like hauling sand to Yuma.”

    “Well, cowboy, don’t bogart that joint, pass it over to me.”

    I surely did.

  14. What is the speed limit on Colorado highways?

    I have no clue

    Since pot is now legal, how will the worker compensation laws work if someone hurts themselves while working around machinery while being stoned?

    How do they work if you are high on legal substances such as alcohol, pain killers and benzos? Or does being denied benefits only apply to illegal substances. The way I see it, being under the influence doesn't always refer to illegal drugs.

    If I have a beer or two at lunch, I have a pretty good idea how it will effect me. What happens if someone fires up a joint with some new hybrid grass; how will that work after lunch?

    You shouldn't have a beer or two at lunch before going back to any job. Just like you shouldn't smoke weed, snort a line of coke, shoot heroin or take few extra percocets to get high.

    What about truck drivers, nurses, machinery operators?

    What about them? The legalization of marijuana is not going to change their smoking habits.

    Oregon Law Lets Mothers Keep Placentas in 2014

    by Robert Wilde 31 Dec 2013 610 post a comment



    On January 1, a new Oregon law provides that Oregon mothers will be able to bring home their placentas from the hospital after childbirth.

    Not everyone knows that in some cultures eating the placenta sac may be nutritional for the mother and the baby. Moreover, memorializing or burying the placenta is an activity shared by some.

    Alissia Keny-Guyer (D-Portland) was the prominent sponsor of the new bill that was overwhelmingly passed by the Oregon 2013 Legislature 56-0. She insists that, “many women do want to take home their placenta for various cultural reasons." Some birthing centers had already allowed for the rare mother to carry her placenta home if she was determined to so. However, up until the new law takes effect, technically medical facilities are prohibited from releasing medical waste, with the exception of veterinary practices.

    Some other laws that go into effect for Oregon in 2014:

    Cigarette tax: The state's cigarette tax will rise 13 cents to $1.31 a pack.

    Driving: Texting or talking on a cell phone while driving will fetch higher fines—at least $142 and up to $500. New on the books: smoking in a car while a child is present. The new violation will fetch a maximum fine of $250 for the first offense and $500 for repeat offenses.

    Animals: Oregonians will be cited for unlawful tethering if they use a leash that is “not a reasonable length” for more than 10 hours in a 24-hour period.

    Medical marijuana: Oregonians with post-traumatic stress disorder will be able to participate in the state’s medical marijuana program

  37. ILLINOIS PASSES LAW TO BAN PETA DRONES FROM HARASSING HUNTERS/FISHERMEN

    :)


    Illinois passed a new state law that set back the efforts of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), making the use of drones to interfere with hunters and fishermen prohibited.

    The law was created in response to PETA’s plan to employ drones called “air angels” to monitor outdoors enthusiasts engaged in hunting and fishing nationwide. Of course, the motivation for many outdoorsman is to get away from technology and be in harmony with nature.

    But PETA has another plan for lovers of the wilderness. They want to spy on hunters as self appointed green police trying to trap them in violations. Surprisingly, these “hobbyists” are able to take home their personal drone for only $324.99.

    By creating a law to prohibit PETA from fulfilling its mission to harass hunters and fisherman in Illinois, it has averted problems that other states like Massachusetts has endured. PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said in a press release in Boston, “PETA’s drones will help protect wildlife by letting hunters know that someone may be watching—and recording—them, so they should think twice before illegally killing or maiming any living being. Wildlife watchers outnumber wildlife killers five to one—and if even a fraction of these kind people use hobby drones, they’ll make a huge difference by exposing hunters’ dirty secrets.”

    Newkirk added, “PETA aims to collect video footage of any illegal activity, including drinking while in the possession of a firearm; using spotlights, feed lures, and other forbidden hunting tricks; and maiming animals and failing to pursue them.

    Doug Jeanneret of the U.S. Sportsman’s Alliance asserts that PETA using drones constitutes “hunter harassment.” He added , “Imagine drones running over your duck decoys or near your tree stand. It would certainly interfere with your hunt and break the law. They will definitely be using them against all hunters.”
