Courts, US public at odds over worker firings for 'legal' marijuana use
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, December, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
A worker in Colorado who undergoes a random drug test is found to test positive for marijuana use, but in less than a month pot-smoking will legal in there. Can a company with a zero-tolerance policy for illegal drug use still fire that worker, or should it instead adjust its policy on employee drug use?
That's just one of many questions that employers in both Colorado and the state of Washington are wrestling with as they adjust to new marijuana laws, which as of Jan. 1 will permit individuals to buy and possess up to an ounce of pot.
The issues to consider are legion: How much discretion do firms have over how to handle workers who smoke pot in their nonwork hours? Can some kinds of workers (officers of the law, public transit drivers, school teachers) be held to a stricter standard than others? And perhaps most germane, when does federal law, which still outlaws marijuana possession and use, trump state law?

Category: Recipes | Posted on Tue, December, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
As someone who has a real soft spot for cinnamon rolls, I highly recommend this recipe! As usual, this recipe will not just cure your munchies but it'll even get you higher than you were. Be careful! These treats are extremely addicting and may have you eating more than you want to if you don't pay attention! These are especially good for the holiday season as presents for your friends and family!
What You'll Need;
10 packets cinnamon roll instant oatmeal
1 cup of firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup softened cannabutter
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 white sugar
1/4 cup of water
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix in the butter and the sugars together until they're a creamy consistency. Take the two eggs and beat them in. Then add in both the flour and the baking soda, stirring continuously. Then add in all of the oatmeal packets as well as the 1/4 cup of water. Stir everything together until mixed evenly. The mixture should be like cookie dough. Make small round balls out of the dough and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake them in the oven for about 12 minutes, until they are golden brown. Remove the cookies from the sheet immediately and put them on a plate to cool off before enjoying!
A great view while Enjoying a Joint

Uruguay On The Verge Of Becoming The First Country In The World To Legalize Marijuana
Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, December, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
Uruguayan Senate to Vote Next Week on President Mujica’s Bill to Tax and Regulate Marijuana
Next week, the Uruguayan Senate will vote on a bill that would make their country the first in the world to legally regulate the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for adults. The bill was approved in the House of Representatives in July with 50 out of 96 votes. The Senate vote will most likely take place on Tuesday, December 10. Once approved in Senate, Uruguay will have 120 days to write the regulations before implementing the law.
The marijuana legalization proposal was put forward by President José Mujica in June 2012 as part of a comprehensive package aimed at fighting crime and public insecurity. After a year and a half of studying the issue, engaging in political debate, redrafting the bill, and the emergence of a public campaign in favor of the proposal, Uruguay’s parliament is set to approve the measure this year.
“It’s about time that we see a country bravely break with the failed prohibitionist model and try an innovative, more compassionate, and smarter approach. By approving this measure, Uruguay will represent a concrete advance in line with growing opposition to the drug war in Latin America and throughout the world,” said Hannah Hetzer, who is based out of Montevideo, Uruguay, as the Policy Manager of the Americas for the Drug Policy Alliance.
The Uruguayan proposal has also gained attention abroad over the past year, as momentum has built throughout the U.S., Latin America and elsewhere for broad drug policy reforms. In November 2012, Colorado and Washington became the first political jurisdictions anywhere in the world to approve the legal regulation of marijuana. In August, the White House announced that the federal government will not interfere with state marijuana laws – as long as a number of stipulations are adhered to, such as preventing distribution to minors.
“Last year, Colorado and Washington; this year, Uruguay; and next year, Oregon and hopefully more states as well,” said Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance. “We still have a long way to go but who would have believed, just five years ago, that legalizing marijuana would have become a mainstream political reality both in the United States and abroad?!”
The Uruguayan bill allows four forms of access to marijuana: medical marijuana through the Ministry of Public Health, domestic cultivation of 6 plants, membership clubs similar to those found in Spain, and licensed sale in pharmacies. It also prohibits sales to minors, driving under the influence, and all forms of advertising.
