:wub:

I really don't care about the number. I was just looking for an excuse to go ape shit on CC. Haven't done that in a while. It just feels like something is missing.

just because something is illegal doesn't mean you shouldn't do it.


I disagree.

There are plenty of things I do not do simply because they are illegal.

That is why I don't do them.

That is why laws exist - to prevent the majority of people from doing the bad things under threat of punishment.

umm, aren't we discussing how the test in question can find the person incorrectly at fault for breaking a law? if the law is for DRIVING under the influence it should be held to that standard.

On the other hand, the government should not force/coerce people to do things like hire a certain amount of a certain type of people. That's just crazy.

they do that ALL the time. like, constantly. contracts are awarded to service disabled, veteran, women owned companies all the time solely because they have owners that meet those qualifications. to the point where companies will place figureheads who don't know anything about the company at all in those positions to shake hands and get contracts signed. people just have a problem with it when it becomes 'hire more black people because we are homogeneous as fuck'

if people want to be outraged about affirmative action, they should be outraged about the multi-million dollar contracts over the 40k job going to a woman.

So I was reading about Washington's new I-502 on here, and it seems like my previous worries aren't that bad.

Quote

What happens if I get pulled over and an officer thinks Iíve been smoking pot?
If an officer believes youíre driving under the influence of anything, they will conduct a field sobriety test and may consult with a drug recognition expert. If officers establish probable cause, they will bring you to a precinct and ask your permission to draw your blood for testing. If officers have reason to believe youíre under the influence of something, they can get a warrant for a blood draw from a judge. If youíre in a serious accident, then a blood draw will be mandatory.

What happens if I get pulled over and Iím sober, but an officer or his K9 buddy smells the ounce of Super Skunk Iíve got in my trunk?
Under state law, officers have to develop probable cause to search a closed or locked container. Each case stands on its own, but the smell of pot alone will not be reason to search a vehicle. If officers have information that youíre trafficking, producing or delivering marijuana in violation of state law, they can get a warrant to search your vehicle.
