I am hoping for a job in the exciting new NYS marijuana industry. They say stores should be opening next Sept-Dec. As someone who watched DMV develop business rules and regulations for 20 years, that is very fast to go from law passed to reg's written and ready to go, but we do have the experience of other states to work with.

What will be interesting is the development of impairment standards. They don't have a good roadside test a la breathalyzer, and they do not even know what to measure or what measurement shows what level of impairment. Free THC in the blood does not work because it is gone within about 30 min of last toke. Anyone wanna say that you are not high anymore in 30 min? That would be some shitty dope...

They have "Drug Recognition" training, but that seems to me a yes/no thing; will the impairment standard be "at all"? It is not currently that with booze, although that is maybe not a bad idea to be truthful.

Several of my retired hippy friends have already who try to keep active so they took classes on being a hemp inspector to get a head start when growing plants with higher levels becomes legal.

I'd have applied for a job with the regulating body, but i retired. Maybe I can go back.
