The biggest problem with complete legalization is drug testing. Pot stays in your system much longer than most drugs. Get in an accident at work that requires testing and you canl show positive even after a month. A DUI test would look the same whether you were guilty of used days earlier.
Emphasis is mine.

To me, the old saying applies "it goes with the territory."

If you work in a position where you could possibly be injured while on the job and you KNOW that it will lead to a drug test, then you probably shouldn't risk using it. Right?

It should be a personal choice, but right now, it's not.
