Hell/Handbasket

Legality of the addictive mind-altering drug alcohol hasn't sent us to Hell in a handbasket - why would legality of marijuana do so?

Actually, alcohol has sent plenty of people into a kind of hell, arguably of their own making, but few drinkers set out to be alcoholics or killers of small children in auto accidents. The stuff can be lethal, adds billions of dollars in harm costs to state budgets (hospital, police etc).

So why would anyone want to add another legal mind/judgement altering substance to the mix? The day after it was voted “legal” in WA state, a stoned kid had an accident that injured six others, a couple critically. It’s just the beginning.

Just curious. What does legalizing drugs do to pre-employment and random drug screens? Since pot would be legal, how long would you have to wait for favorable drug results? Would you just quit testing for drugs too?
