Should People Be Allowed To Smoke Up At Legal Retail Marijuana Shops?

So you’re visiting a state where recreational marijuana is legal. Congratulations! Now it’s time to get some of that green stuff and partake — but where are you supposed to get high if you don’t have a private residence?

That’s a problem two Alaskan brothers want to solve so they can get a nice slice of the state’s $260 million pot business: They own Juneau’s first marijuana retail shop and want to offer onsite consumption to cruise boat tourists, theAssociated Press reports.

“We have a lot of tourists that come to Juneau — over a million every year — and a place for them to consume responsibly seems like a good thing to do,” one of the brothers told the AP.

Regulators will discuss the idea of allowing retail stores in the state to provide separate areas of their business for customers who want to toke up.

Making marijuana available for medical research and treatment is good, but the 'recreational' use of it is not going to be a good thing.

We are already seeing problems with that.

Cops will be hanging out to bust anybody who leaves the place and gets behind the wheel. It'll be like shooting fish in a barrel.

If it's legal then yes.

No different than going to a bar and drinking.

Just drinking (which is legal) is fine
Just smoking (if legal) is fine

Either while driving makes you impaired and that is BAD.
