Yup, another pot thread. However, this one is not about legalization or how legalization is the great panacea for all of society's ills. This is a woman demanding to toke up, on legally prescribed pot, in a public place despite a no smoking policy, except in designated smoking areas. She says she didn't want to go to the smoking area because her children would be left unattended. I'd say an bigger concern is that she'd be driving with her kids after toking up.

There are other forms of delivery she could use in situations like this, but chose to play the victim card. My mother suffered from TGN for years and was put on morphine to treat the flare ups, but she eventually opted for surgery where the TG nerve is crushed, rather than rely on narcotics, anti convulsants and tricyclic antidepressants to manage the pain.

No one is saying she can't use her prescription, but she refused to use it in an area designated for smokers. Her medication, unlike most others, poses risks for others due to second hand smoke which is unhealthy and it just plain stinks.

Put the THC in an inhaler. Problem solved.

Just toke up in the parking lot before she goes in, which even the dullest of high (snicker) school students eventually figure out.

Sorry, I forgot, it's a civil rights issue now, so "ban" automatically equals "HitlerHarper". Welcome to Mogadishu, white people. :roll:

Actually the article states the park doesn't even allow people to use medicinal marijuana anywhere in the park, even in the smoking area.

Quote:
La Ronde is a smoke-free theme park, although it does permit people to smoke tobacco in designated areas.
But when it comes to marijuana, the park has a firm zero-tolerance policy.


However I agree with you on everything else. The lady seems to think just because she has a permit to use the stuff legally that somehow gives her the right to use it wherever she wants. So honey, life don't work like that. Everyone else on the planet has the right NOT to be subjected to that crap. I find it bewildering that an amusement park would have a smoking area period, but then again it's Quebec.

Quote:
“It's been decided that medical marijuana is exactly that, a medicine. And I don't think that they would confiscate a pain killer from somebody if they were asked for a glass of water so that they could take the pills the doctor prescribed.”


What an idiotic comparison. A pill is something that affects the person who ingests it. It doesn't affect those standing around the person who takes the pill.

Really not much to argue here, this woman's being difficult for the sake of being difficult.

If there were no reasonable options for her to be able to get her medicine in a way that didn't break the rules there might be room for discussion, but it's only her own unwillingness to use any of the many other methods that's causing her problems.

Your chances of being "affected" by the smoke from a joint that someone is smoking in a wide open space are exponentially lower than getting hit by lightning.
Then again, maybe the woman is like me. I've had a broken back for 21 years now and I REFUSE to take prescription pain killers for it. Most don't work on me and the ones that do work are highly addictive. I guess that means people like me and the woman in the article should just stay home and do nothing in public ever again, right?

What other methods? You are aware that Harper has decreed that making marijuana butter for consumption in baked goods is illegal, even if it's for medicinal use.

People do get affected. My kid, for instance. And me as well. I don't need to have to deal with your medication. Go sit in your car and get high.

Horseshit. You're seriously telling me you and your kids have been standing around people smoking weed in a wide open space and you were phsically affected by it?

And guess what toots? Every time you drink water you are dealing with people's medication. When people take pills, some of it gets expelled in the urine and enters our water system. Water treatment plants do NOT have the capability to clean up medical "leftovers".
In Montreal, the fish in the surrounding waters have had changes in their brain functions and structure as a result of people peeing out their medication.
And you're worried about a whiff of pot smoke. Fuckin' spare me.

Having been on California beaches, this happens all the time.

They can remove them to acceptable levels.

This woman needs a fucking reality check. Just another entitled twit who thinks the world should bow to her wishes. If it was me I'd let her smoke, take a video of it and then when she went to leave call the cops on her and have her pathetic whining ass hauled away for impaired driving.

Oh sorry my mistake, please disregard my previous suggestion since everyone knows that smoking marijuana makes you a better driver, not worse. :P

This reminds me of that story about the lady needing a pot inhaler that was as tall as her, using it during fucking class.

Go into the designated smokers area like everybody else who smokes. Don't be a self-centered ass.
