    No joke; the cashier in Kroger asked me why I bought so much oregano.
    I quit all that silly stuff when I married my new wife.

    Oregano does not smell like weed at all. Only a complete idiot could be duped. Ripping someone off, good way to find yourself pushing daisies.

    I didn't rip anyone off, didn't sell anything. If I had, sure wouldn't post about it.

    There are people in Biden administration lobbying for federal legalization of cannabis. Looks promising.

    Won't apply to CDL drivers though; same as alcohol which is also legal in all USA.
    Not allowed to have alcohol in your system while driving a CMV.

    Keeping THC as an off duty use banned item is only going to fuel more driver shortages. Like there aren't enough reasons not to continue in this occupation already.

    Dangerous job
    Long hours
    No overtime
    Improper benefits
    Over regulation. This is just another example

    I haven't smoked in quite a few years because of my CDL. I have noticed lately that my employer is having an extremely hard time hiring new people. Pay is going up nearly everywhere else, and the THC thing is one more reason people will look elsewhere for work.

    Eventually things wont move anymore
