Can we normalize #marijuana over medicine? Over half of the people in a survey said they're already doing it. Get the details from #NORMLNews: https://bit.ly/36UMiaH

A team of Dutch researchers surveyed over 2,800 medical #cannabis consumers. Over half of respondents (56 percent) reported using cannabis “for the purpose of replacing a prescribed drug.”

I have 3 herniated disc’s in my lower back after scaffolding (built by non English speaking laborers) gave way at a construction site and I dropped over 2 stories loaded with tool belt and nail gun, I use an inversion table and some natural substance as you enjoy 😉 for pain relief, I was given serious pain medication that an awesome Dr told me just masks the pain, I remember Brett Farve got hooked on the same medication and I was glad I stayed away from it. snow is now a great equilizer for me to enjoy moving along, stay strong Scotty

Why did you feel the need to qualify that the people who built the scaffolding didn't speak English?

Sorry about the accident and back

So what language did they speak? What about that language made them inferior workers?

in upstate NY we learned French as a 2nd language, moved down south for work, the workers did not know how to properly use nail guns setting up scaffolding, what looked like nail whole were blanks, they fled as soon as the scaffolding fell as I was framing out the roof of a 2nd story bay, in the 20 + years since I have managed federal commercial and large residential job sites, I take safety seriously that’s what its all about in the high end work around DC, 2 years ago Don Kerr’s wife Alison found me to help get their home ready for sale, Don ran the star wars defense program. Sorry if anyone is offended but it just came out as info I would ask if someone said they got injured from scaffolding droppingDC49293E-0E7E-43CB-AA8A-A9AB71735C64.jpeg

There are 1.35B people who speak English in this world. There are roughly 6.55B who don't. Safe to say that many folks who don't speak English can build scaffolding just fine.

What we have here is failure to communicate, perhaps you don’t have a job where you manage people and mistakes can lead to their injuries?, go troll someone else.

Not trolling. Just think you are obnoxious to point out that those who built the scaffolding didn't speak English. What language they speak has next to nothing to do with why it failed. The failure is on the the person who trained them. The language doesn't matter.

the company failed in putting worker’s in the field who were not able to use the equipment properly for the reason I explained , they acknowledged that and had to pay for their failure, you are worse then a troll because you put down someone you don’t know without fully understanding the situation, it makes sense that you have an opposing/error filled opinion because you are quite different then the people I am around , I managed 1000,s in construction many from other countries whom I help, if anyone needs work in the DC metro area let me know, I can’t imagine you manage people Dead, what do you do for work?

Lol I don't care if you're the Grandson of Raymond DeWalt and gods greatest gift to the construction trade.

The "non English speaking" qualifier was totally unnecessary.

I've managed plenty of people in my lifetime and some who were ESL. I never placed the blame on their work quality on their language skills. It was up to me and other managers to train them properly before assigning the work. Your teams leadership failed there. They could have been multi generation English speaking people and still screwed up.

I currently work in Medical technology sales and serve as a Project Manager for installations. Many end users are ESL. It is up to my team and hospital leadership to make sure these hospital workers are well trained no matter their language. If not, patients can be injured or die.

You maybe meant no malice in your comment, but it certainly came across as tone deaf at minimum.

you were never in my situation, I was new to the area, new to that company who admitted fault, with another insult and you having no clue to the situation you are way too sensitive and soft to run a construction crew, you put someone’s mistaken hurt feelings before other workers safety , I am done replying to you and again I see why we have opposing views because you are so soft it must suck being around you

Australian researchers reviewed the results from 28 eligible studies (involving 824 participants) that assessed the relationship between THC-related biomarkers and individuals’ performance.

They reported that no consistent relationship exists between THC or THC-metabolite concentrations and impaired performance, and that such relationships are nearly impossible to infer in more habitual cannabis consumers. Further, they identified blood THC concentrations as "the poorest correlates of impairment, demonstrating a ‘very weak’ relationship after both ingestion and inhalation of THC."

Germany makes best plant legal before us unfortunately no surprise:
"BERLIN — Germany’s next governing coalition have agreed to legalize the sale of cannabis for recreational purposes, to “introduce the regulated sale of cannabis to adults for consumption purposes in licensed stores,”
German coalition agrees to legalize."

“U.S. senators representing Colorado are adding their voices to calls for marijuana banking reform to be included in must-pass defense legislation.

In a letter sent to Senate committee leadership on Wednesday, Sens. John Hickenlooper (D-CO) and Michael Bennet (D-CO) noted that the House passed its version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) with the banking amendment, and argued that language should be adopted by negotiators in conference for the final legislation sent to President Joe Biden’s desk.”
