    <begin quoted text>
    Dear World,

    It's been a tough year: in North America, oil gushing into the Gulf of
    Mexico; in Asia some of the highest temperatures ever recorded; in the
    Arctic, the fastest melting of sea ice ever seen; in Latin America, record
    rainfalls washing away whole mountainsides.

    So we're having a party.

    Circle 10/10/10 on your calendar. That's the date. The place is wherever you
    live. And the point is to do something that will help deal with global
    warming in your city or community.
    We're calling it a Global Work Party

    You're 20 centuries too late for the perfect 10? Perhaps we could agree on
    an imperfect 10? 8-)

    seconds... twice. Darn.

    Guess it depends on the string you're talking about; it would be 10 centures
    for the string you offered, but not for 10/10/10 as originally posted. 8-)

    Imagine the first 4/20 in Cali if Prop 19 passes. I doubt that
    there'd be much increase in pot smoking by residents, but like it was
    many years ago with gambling in Nevada, there'd be pot tourism. I
    don't want to see pot freedom anytime soon. I'd like to see it
    regulated and taxed--easy to say because I'm not a smoker--because
    states need revenue, and pot smokers would welcome that compromise,
    making pot more like liquor. The only downside to complete
    legalization is that it is still impossible to test intoxication
    levels as pertains to driving. Funny, but I almost never see that as
    an objection from the anti-pot people, and I see that as the only deal
    breaker.

    A few points:

    1. Many people will still have jobs which require them to undergo
    urinalysis. An employee who smokes pot on vacation will likely still have it
    in his or her system for several weeks afterward, so those people are still
    putting their jobs at risk, and are just as unlikely to smoke pot on
    vacation as before the vote, regardless of the outcome of the election.

    2. The proposition would also allow adults (21 or older) to grow their own;
    I'm not sure how that could easily be regulated and taxed.

    3. MADD's objection to the proposition is exactly the objection you cited,
    that it "allows drivers to smoke marijuana until the moment they climb
    behind the wheel." However, consider (from politifact.com):

    =================================BEGIN QUOTE================================

    the National Roadside Survey of Alcohol and Drug Use by Drivers. It was
    conducted in 2007 for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration --
    part of the federal Department of Transportation -- through a contract with
    the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation. It was the fourth major
    roadside survey (earlier ones were undertaken in 1973, 1986 and 1996) and
    was the first to look at drugs as well as alcohol.

    ....

    We don't know much about how drugs affect the act of driving. Compared to
    the effects of alcohol, the impact of drugs on driving is not yet well
    understood. Some of this has to do with the long head start in research on
    alcohol and driving, and some has to do with the greater chemical complexity
    of drugs compared to alcohol.

    The authors of the study were open about the limitations of today's
    knowledge. "In addition to the prevalence of drug use by drivers," they
    wrote, "several other questions need to be answered in order to assess the
    drug-impaired driving problem, including: Which drugs impair driving
    ability? What drug dose levels are associated with impaired driving? Which
    drugs are associated with higher crash rates?"

    They added a strongly worded caveat. "The reader is cautioned that drug
    presence does not necessarily imply impairment," they wrote. "For many drug
    types, drug presence can be detected long after any impairment that might
    affect driving has passed. For example, traces of marijuana can be detected
    in blood samples several weeks after chronic users stop ingestion. Also,
    whereas the impairment effects for various concentration levels of alcohol
    are well understood, little evidence is available to link concentrations of
    other drug types to driver performance."

    To offer a more concrete example, it's unclear how much impact a joint of
    marijuana inhaled two weeks ago may have on a driver today. It could well be
    that the two-week-old joint is less of an impairment than a legal level of
    alcohol in the blood -- even though the study would count the marijuana user
    as part of that 16 percent "under the influence of drugs" yet exclude
    someone with .07 percent alcohol from the 2.2 percent of alcohol-impaired
    drivers.

    Thomas McLellan, deputy director of the Office of National Drug Control
    Policy, told PolitiFact that the sensitivity of the oral swabs makes it
    "highly unlikely" that marijuana use "even half a day earlier would have
    shown up" in the survey. Still, in addition to the survey authors' written
    caution, several independent experts we contacted agreed that the lack of
    data on drug-use-and-driving interactions suggests that the survey's results
    be taken with a degree of caution.
