I think to best help the new law, is to respect it.  I think the people in these states did a great thing, but if they are going to be stupid, then they don't deserve the privelage IMO.

I did read that the state doesnt plan to enforce parts of the law like smoking outside just yet until they spread more word about the details to the people, but yea, if you cant smoke cigarettes inside, you arent going to be able to smoke marijuana obviously.

That might depend upon how the law is worded.  If it specifically says "no smoking of tobacco products" because they were trying to cover cigarettes, cigars, or pipes, because anything else was illegal anyway, then there is a loophole now that pot is legal.  If it says "no smoking of anything" (or whatever appropriate legal wording) then yeah, that would include pot as well.

(1) "Smoke" or "smoking" means the carrying or smoking of any kind of lighted pipe, cigar, cigarette, or any other lighted smoking equipment.

Doesn't say that it has to be tobacco.

One Seattle bar is trying to beat the competition by officially advertising that they allow pot smoking inside. Someone might want to explain to the owner why restaurants/bars in Washington haven't had "smoking sections" for many years. Idiot.
Doesn't mean you have to follow them.  When smoking in bars was banned in South Dakota, some owners shouldered the fines for as long as they could, because they felt their business, their right to decide, which I agree with.

The fines are easy to handle (up to $100 per day where a violation occurred). The fact that the health department is enforcing the ban isn't as easy to avoid. And it requires the health department to call upon their attorneys, those of the cities/towns involved, or the county prosecutor to obtain separate civil penalties.

All that can add up quick.

And they run the risk of being shut down outright.

I can understand the legality thing if someone wants to use that as the basis of their anti-weed smoking in establishments argument but I think the main beef with smoking tobacco indoors was the issue with its aroma. I've heard from numerous sources that it would take an unfathomable amount of second hand weed smoke ("impossible" may actually be a more accurate way to describe it) to cause a non-weed smoker to fail a drug test.

Also, it's pretty doubtful that nearly as many people are as grossed out by weed aroma as they are by tobacco aroma and that has a huge deal to do with the fact that weed is usually not drenched in toxic chemicals (to artificially boost its addictive properties) which means you're merely smelling a burning plant instead of a hazmat fire. Lastly, tobacco smoke odor can linger for days on the clothing of non-smokers who spent an evening in a bar  whereas the stench weed smoke leaves on clothing can dissipate in just a few hours even if you were the person smoking it.

Not sure where you're getting your info.  The problem with smoking indoors is secondhand smoke, not the aroma of cigarettes. 

Likewise, most non-weed-smokers dislike the aroma of weed.  A lot.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I think it's probably both, in both cases.  Now that I don't smoke cigarettes anymore, I find the smell of cigarette smoke pretty disgusting, but I'm also quite aware of the second-hand smoke issue.

I haven't completely given up weed, but I do know that not everyone enjoys the smell.  And I wouldn't be surprised if some people are paranoid about the second-hand effects, both the health issue and the possibility of it showing up in a drug test.  Justified or not, if these are actual concerns of people, they will affect behavior, and voting.

If the main beef about it was the smell, then why does the anti-smoking law specifically have the health department involved? Could it be because the people see it as a health concern? They purposely framed it as being about how workers shouldn't be forced to hang around second-hand smoke that isn't good for your lungs just to have a job. And although it can be fair to say "people choose to have jobs with smoking allowed" it's not as fair in the economic climate of today.

Most of the smell you guys find objectionable is the paper, not the grass.  Zig-zags are damned effective but they really do stink.  If y'all were around somebody smoking out of a bong or a pipe, you'd probably not smell it at all, or in the case of some really nice bud, think it smells nice.  Really good grass might as well be potpourri.

High quality bud smells really good but I do wonder if a pot smokers mind is tricked by associating the smell with the knowledge of the good feeling and therefore like the smell. I wonder this because I only know of one non smoker who enjoys the smell.

I think you're right.  When people are smoking joints, you smell the weed, but there's a "dirty" quality to the smoke.  If people are hitting a pipe, you just smell the sweetness of the herb.  I'm not sure why I've never really thought about it like that before.

No, it's definitely the bud.  If you've been around somebody smoking hash or keef, it almost smells like candy.  The plant matter still has some unpleasantness, but all those sticky crystals will overpower that.

I read about this. I'm trying to remain optimistic. I believe it was four shops that were raided. I guess all four were raided more than two years ago, before the legalized laws erectus put in place. The Feds are saying that these raids were part of an ongoing/unfinished investigation.

So my office was contracted to do the design for an indoor greenhouse with controlled environment for a "weed farm" as we now come to call it.  Its a very large scale operation; the tent in the photo is one of at least 4.  This is 100% legal as its contracted for a medical facility.  There are strict government protocols that has to be adhered to. 

Funny background:  There were three partners that invested in this.  Of course the government did a full background check of each of them.  Turns out one of the guy was an active member of the mafia!  Needless to say, the entire project was shutdown for months while everyone (including our office) were investigated further.

The main investor on this is a friend of my boss; he was explaining how he is getting his foot in early in what is undoubtedly an industry that can only grow in the foreseeable future.

That place is beautiful.

Sidebar. Over a dozen cities in Colorado are not allowing the distribution of marijuana despite the fact that it is legal on the state level. I'm guessing they'll come around real quick when they see how much revenue their neighboring towns are generating.

The fact that it's for a medical facility is meaningless, imo, considering that the federal government has marijuana in schedule I, defining it as having no medical value. Add the fact that it's a felony to grow (and with possible large prison time and fines for such a large operation) and that they ruled that you don't even have the right to grow your own pot, it's definitely not "100% legal."

Not meant to be a killjoy, but just pointing out what the feds would have to say about it.

Not how I'd do it. Should work well for bulk, but I'd want considerably more room for quality control. That's a one size fits all plan. It's also very low maintenance, which I guess is a plus, but see above; good quality takes effort.

Update:

http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/29/politics/holder-marijuana-laws/index.html?hpt=hp_c2

The Justice Department said it won't try to block state laws that legalize marijuana and issued loosened enforcement guidelines for federal prosecutors intended to focus on serious trafficking cases.
 
Attorney General Eric Holder, in a conference call Thursday morning, notified the governors of Colorado and Washington that the department, for now, will not seek to pre-empt those states' laws, which followed voters' approval of ballot measures that legalized recreational marijuana use.

Just came here to post this.

The Huff Post has a few more details about it: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/29/eric-holder-marijuana-washington-colorado-doj_n_3837034.html

Quote
The memo also outlines eight priorities for federal prosecutors enforcing marijuana laws. According to the guidance, DOJ will still prosecute individuals or entities to prevent:
 •the distribution of marijuana to minors;
 •revenue from the sale of marijuana from going to criminal enterprises, gangs and cartels;
 •the diversion of marijuana from states where it is legal under state law in some form to other states;
 •state-authorized marijuana activity from being used as a cover or pretext for the trafficking of other illegal drugs or other illegal activity;
 •violence and the use of firearms in the cultivation and distribution of marijuana
 •drugged driving and the exacerbation of other adverse public health consequences associated with marijuana use;
 •growing of marijuana on public lands and the attendant public safety and environmental dangers posed by marijuana production on public lands;
 •preventing marijuana possession or use on federal property.

I'm cool with it.  :hat

I'm guessing a Marijuana farm dumping hazardous fertilizers into a nearby stream or something. It's a stretch, but it could go as far as the energy efficiency of the building. No excessive carbon emissions, enviromentally friendly grow lights, etc...

So does that mean it it practically legal for recreational use in the country?  By practically I mean it is still illegal, but will not be enforced unless you are an idiot and break one of those outlined rules?
