Bet this bill doesn't address it, but seriously, how's that gonna' work?

That is correct and it absolutely should be addressed. If traveling from legal country to legal state there should never be anything more than a small tax or fee for bringing it in.

That's the thing, if I travel from legal Canada to a legal state, I will still be arrested because on a federal level it is still illegal.

Yes. It is the same excuse employers are using to give drug screens and to test you after and workplace accident.

If they find THC or other drugs in your system they blame the accident on the person it happened to, and it keeps the company insurance rates down as they don't have to pay.

Quote:“Voters across the country have made it clear that they want to see our failed marijuana criminalization laws modernized. The federal government should listen to the will of the people and stop forcing unjust and discriminatory criminalization policies on states that have chosen legalization,” echoed Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-California), who also co-sponsors H.R. 4779. “It’s time to empower our communities to move from prohibition towards progress.”

That's exactly how it is Meh, so many factories need employees they are skipping drug tests, but if you ğck up and get hurt, count on a piss test.

It's not the companies insisting on testing. It is a requirement under Workman's Comp. They are also the ones insisting on pre-employment testing.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Workers Compensation is essentially an Insurance company. It's a system that employers must retain for their employees.
They collect the money for the limited purpose of medical coverage in the event of a work place accident.
Unfortunately, they (like all insurance companies) are extremely reluctant to payout.
Marijuana or any other substances that impair an employee's judgment or ability to function safely are considered a breach of contract with the department and therefore making compensation unavailable to the claimant.
It's pretty straight forward.
Most insurance companies try to find a way to escape paying the client. It's just business.
Drugs and alcohol abuse are a loophole to make sure that the client will potentially be at fault and forfeit their paid benefits.

Of course, getting injured on the job and failing a drug screen not only allows them to deny payment, it also costs you your job.

The Alternative is simply to come to work

Sober. Nothing wrong with that and easy too.
