Re: “Conference helps state look at what it needs for legal pot” (TNT, 1-31).
Following the marijuana legalization process has been a real education, but no particular entity seems to pay any attention to minute matters concerning the health care policies or employment ramifications of casual legal usage.
Will there be warning labels attached to the selling features, like there is with alcohol and cigarettes? Isn’t a urine sample required for all those applying for government work or those contractors who do piece meal government work? Will insurance company liabilities cover those involved in accidents where marijuana is present in an individual’s blood system?
There is more to this legalization than planting a few seeds, getting a license and opening a store.
