    I'm curious too. Is this "smokeable" or is it in pill form? My brother-in-law was prescribed "Marinol" for nausea when he went through chemo therapy.

    Just curious.

    Back in my college days I smoke grass every day after class. About three bong hits of high grade pot would keep you impaired say 5 hours tops, and never once did I feel a "hangover" the next morning. I also had my CCP the entire time, though never once did I carry while the least bit stoned. It shouldbe noted that I practically never drank booze simply because it didnt agree with me. Since graduating I had to give it up because of BS random drug testing. All in all i never carried while impaired and since maturing i would advise a person to stop alltogether, simply because of the POSSIBLE legal reprocussions. If I have to pull the trigger I dont want to get locked up because I had fun at a party a few nights before. Just covering my own ass. A man's got to know his limitations

    Sheepdog or pothead. The choice is yours, but I don't see how one could be both. I could be wrong, but I think the medicinal argument for marijuana is just an excuse to get high.

    Take it in prescription pill form, you don't have to smoke it.

    His best bet is to contact the people who issue your CCW in that state. But i would guess it would have the same affect as if you carried while drunk. Even thou the "high" it gives you compared to what booze will do is different it is still mind altering which could cause a problem

    I think this is wrong. If mj helps someone feel better(think chemo, or glaucoma) then it is far from just being an excuse. Just because its illegal doesnt mean its useless.

    Since you can't legally operate a motor vehicle under the influence of perscription drugs, I would think the same applies to marijuana as far as CCW is concerned. In most states CCWing under the influence of anything, prescribed or not is illegal.

    Everytime one of these laws is passed it's always for serious illnesses like glaucoma or cancer. Once they get their foot in the door the list keeps getting longer and longer until they're prescribing it for ingrown hairs and hang nails.

    No, it depends on what type of Rx you take.

    Sure, but that shouldnt take away from the ones that truly benefit.

    It is a well known fact that alcohol is deadlier than mj. There are thousands upon thousands of deaths every year in the USA from alcohol related illnesses. MJ can be credited with 0 deaths...ever.

    Partaking = intoxication reply

    Our cultural fear of "alcohol" and "narcotics" has impaired our ability to distinguish between partaking of a substance and being impaired by it.

    It should be obvious, though I know it isn't, to many. But, a bite of food doesn't make one full; a sip of wine doesn't make one drunk; a well-dosed pain med of the narcotic/opiate variety need not make one "drugged" to the point of impairment.

    For those needing factual actuals in order to accept this reality, any competent doctor can provide.

    In short: all depends on the dose.
    From my comment in post 24 above, where I presented research results done in a flight simulator, it appears that "partaking" equaled impairment at 24 hours after.

    And this, from someone who does not object to legalization.

    All I'm saying is that someone who is impaired can not reliably make the judgment as to whether or not they can safely carry.

    And I'll I'm saying is the flipside, that someone unimpaired can absolutely make the call, particularly if the call is made with competent doctor input. It's a matter of dosing. If done right, a given dosing won't magically become impairing at some unknown time in future; rather, it'll be avoided, because of the dosing specifically formulated to avoid that. Speak with a competent doc. This isn't rocket science.
