It will never happen, people still don't like being in a smokey room, I smoke cigarettes and even I can't stand being in a closed room filled with smoke, ain't going to happen.

I've heard a lot of cannabis smokers like to sit in a room full of smoke.

I could be wrong though.




That's why some stoners are labeled as such.

There is nothing wrong with being labeled that.

Possibly, but cigarette smoke smells atrocious. Even to cigarette smokers. Thats pretty much the oppositte for most people who smoke cannabis.

Yeah, because casinos have been struggling to get careless people with addictive personalities into their doors for years!

Which is exactly why they'll push for this once it's more socially acceptable.

Then again, it might make some people more paranoid about losing their money.


It will be individual. Some people may be more careless, but I reckon a decent percentage will just get stoned, bypass the high pressure gambling stuff, and go to the arcade or hit a show instead.

Oh I don't know
as a ex smoker, I walk into a smokey bar and so long as its not going directly into my face by sitting in a ash tray or being blown at me, I actually quite like the smell. It might however just be association...smokey bars are in a sort of familiar zone.

I say that, but my mind is brought to the bar I go to that is well ventilated so its really just a hint of smoke and not like..some hole in the wall with clouds lingering. I think that would turn anyone off.

Canada is set to have it somewhat legalized (legal with a gazillion regulations) by next year, and there won't likely be any smoke filled rooms. We haven't even had cigarette smoke filled rooms for years - no smoking in bars, restaurants, work places.....even in most people's homes now, people step outside to have a cigarette (those few that still smoke).

Yeah, it's all owned by Caesar's Entertainment and the like now. I think the last mob hit in Las Vegas was in the 90's. These days, I'm pretty sure the biggest mob presence in LV is the Mob Museum. Which btw, I recommend. My wife and I hit up last summer and it's really pretty well done.

I grew up in Vegas.

You're definitely right about the Mob Museum being the last real vestige of a mob presence in Vegas. You THINK it could be hokey when you get there, but they actually have well set up and they have a lot of cool stuff on exhibit.

Sorry to distract from the fact Nevada has made a great historic move in the right direction. But gonna throw a flag here... Besides the thread was derailed in the OP.

As we speak, Jeff Sessions' secret marijuana committee is meeting. What they decide to do will inevitably shape our country and our criminal justice system.

You do realize this thread would have twice the impact if you were capable of keeping your political posturing out of it right? It should have twice the flags placing it as front page news where it belongs. But by the second paragraph and second sentence we are in Jeff Sessions la-la land again... Thus lowering the impact. Kudos once again.

Actually the word "stoner" is pot shaming.
I thought you were against shaming?
Or just select kinds of shaming? You know the kind...

Being called "stoner" automatically says 2 things "slow" and "lazy"...
Not sure about you bro.
But I'm neither.
I prefer the term "cannabis connoisseur"
Whatever floats your boat I guess.

This is exactly right. Employers here are taking the same position. Can't blame them I guess.

Having worked for the casinos for years I can also assure everyone there's no mob involved. It's all corporate. WAY corporate. Seriously, if Disney bought it all, it would basically be the same thing... just with a cartoon mouse


You're right about Republic as well lol

I think we're up to eight states now...

www.governing.com...

I live currently in WA. It is less expensive for me to buy 1g of super high quality weed than to by a six-pack of my favorite micro-brew. For the price of a 12-pack of Heineken I could buy an eighth, or, a gram and two whoppers


Point being...as more states legalize, you will start seeing big alcohol/drug companies start to sweat, and do what capitalists do.

It's just pot people....... 40 years ago this summer I smoked my first joint walking to FairlaneTowncenter. My first reaction was..... That's it?...... all that hype, all that making a fuss.... over that?

I was expecting an atom bomb and come to find out it really wasnt even a fire cracker. I knew right away I had been lied to for a very long time. From everyone, my parents and teachers all the way to the police and politicians. My old man found pot on me when I was like 15 and beat the snot out of me for it...... 2 years later I was running in the house to get something and he was heading out to go play cards..... and asks me if I had some that he could have to take with him.

It's just pot people.. nothing to get worked up about. It is not worth tossing people in jail over or ruining their ability to support their families. A group of people granting citizens permission to smoke a doobie in their house is insanity. Painting us as people who just sit in a basement high as a kite unable to function is immoral.

I am a conservative, I wish to conserve the constitution not take liberties with it. Yet the party that most resembles my beliefs would lock me up in prison, completely ignoring The Sanctity of the Home, all the while claiming to hold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as gospel.

it's just pot.... not so important to me that I would abandon my personal beliefs about other matters...... but I would sure be a lot happier if the Republicans would get on TV and say.... it's just pot.

And no hangover! Alcohol gives so many people the worst hangovers, how can any of them think it's ok, with how sick many people get the next day, compared to waking up feeling like we've had a really good sleep, and are fully refreshed.
It's mind boggling!

With only half a can of beer, I feel like my brain cells are dying. My mind just numbs. It's awful. It'll be nice to have a healthy choice that wakes up the brain, the creativeness, that's actually legal one day.
