From the wires:<br><br>"In Nevada, they love gambling and tolerate prostitution. Now they are talking about legalizing pot. <br><br>A measure on the ballot Nov. 5 would make Nevada the first state to allow adults to possess marijuana -- up to 3 ounces, enough for maybe 100 joints. <br><br>People over 21 would be allowed to smoke it in their homes but not in cars or public places. Pot would be sold in state-licensed smoke shops and taxed like cigarettes. <br><br>'This initiative will allow the police to spend more time going after murderers, rapists and other violent criminals,' said Billy Rogers, leader of the group that is pushing the measure."<br><br>As usual, however, the long arm of the feds might step in:<br><br>"Whether it [the law] could actually take effect is unclear. Federal law bans marijuana possession, and the White House has come out strongly against the idea. Also, Nevada voters would have to approve the proposal again in 2004 before it became law."<br><br>I wonder if Alec might contemplate working for the Nevada tourist bureau. <br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Well, since the LVCVA (Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority) is a client of the agency I used to work for, I probably could get him my old job there. It was a great agency to work for, and they probably would allow him to smoke his joints at work... they're kind of open about things such as that! <br><br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

One big problem.<br>Its a federal law that bans pot.<br>So even if Nevada makes it legal, that would only mean that Nevadas local police cannot arrest you for smoking pot.<br><br>HUGE Caveat - The DEA can and still will arrest you in Nevada.<br>Keep in mind that Federal law is over any state law - A state cannot make a Federal law less effective, they can make it more severe.<br><br>If this law passes in Nevada you can be sure that the Feds will punish the state. The DEA will step in and start to bust people all over the place, Nevada will lose Federal grant money for projects thats slated for infrastructure improvements.<br><br>I guess the state could make up that lost of millions by selling pot to its own people.<br><br>
