Gov’t should have better plan for policing pot use
It defies logic that the federal government would spend years and millions of dollars to legalize pot and not have a specific plan on policing its use by those driving on the road.
One would assume that this would have been a priority from the beginning that it needs to be monitored and tested as alcohol is. The media have been supporting the entire narrative of this newfound freedom for the citizens of the country, but is there no protocol for law enforcement so our children are protected from pot-smoking drivers?
Businesses are expected to deal with medical marijuana in the workplace without specific government guidelines on how it should be managed. Why should businesses have to spend time, money and resources — not to mention legal fees — to put together policies that may not address what the legal system defines as acceptable? Safety guidelines should be clear to all companies on how this should be addressed and this should be forthcoming from the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board.
This is a typical government method of handling an issue. Make up a law or regulation and figure it out as we go along. In the meantime, they can’t wait to get their hands on the tax windfall.
