    A few interesting things I noticed about the article:

    1. Representative Dana Rohrabacher is a man. Think about going through high school named Dana. If you can handle that, you can probably manage anything.

    2. This is the first piece of Republican legislation that I heartily approve of. Fits in with Conservative ideals.

    3. Even if states allow it, and fed allows it, time will tell if companies will allow it. So, if you're getting a new job it's always good to start clean.

    4. Holy crap, bong party

      On point 3, wouldn't that basically be the same as saying "don't come into work drunk"? Isn't it just a given to not be completely out of it while at work?

        To be honest, depends on the company. The majority, sure. "Don't come to work under the influence". handles them nicely.

        Other companies are far stricter. Even the the point of drug testing for nicotine, and firing employees if they did not comply. Hospitals are the same way, actually. If you smoke, you can be fired.

        It's not completely inconceivable that companies will still consider any level of THC in an employee's system to be grounds for dismissal. Laws may change, but their policies aren't required to.

          It is absolutely bonkers that it is tolerated in the US. Pretty much anywhere else in the world it would be an unacceptable invasion of privacy.

      The military will be last, about 30 years after everyone else.

      Am I invited to your bong party?

    That title is some serious click-bait.

    'End prohibition across the US' - FAR from it.

    It would simply stop federal crack-downs in states who have already decriminalized on their own.

    It seems like a great bill, but it's way different than the headline implies.

        It's the last word in the article :p

    Obtaining pot illegally is fun and part of its recreational appeal. Ending prohibition opens wide a community long insulated from "squares" to buzzkill capitalist ideology and lame ass bipartisan legislation. Bummer.

    • KingAztek

      Keeping it illegal directly funds terrorist drug cartels which inflict senseless violence in every inch of land they operate in. I'm sorry, but I'm honestly offended at your comment. Given that 4 in 10 Americans have admitted to smoking pot, it'd hardly call that insulated.

      • imokruok

        scary to think 4 in 10 americans directly finance terrorist drug cartels.

      So in your mind, the adrenaline rush and narcissistic feeling of being 'cool' is well worth families being ripped apart by prison sentences and cartel violence?

      I really hope you're just trolling.

        poe's law. my bad. not trolling, just joking. thought bummer might give it away.

    Oh,I wonder how long it will take (if it happens that is) for all drugs to be decriminalized.
