    If I lived there, and smoked pot, and I wanted this man to cut my hair - I'd simply make sure I didn't smell of pot. Either that or I'd find another barber that didn't care if I smelled like pot.

    That said, when I do smoke, I always "detox"... no one ever knows when I've smoked.
    Of course they don't. And a man I knew was convinced that no one suspected he was almost always drunk.

    In the socialist USA, the barber is free to do as he chooses as long as the person is not one of those protected by the government. If it's a gay smoker or a black smoker or a Moslem smoker, he's screwed.

    GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4) – A barber shop in Greeley refuses service to people who smell like marijuana.
    The owner of Hugo’s Barber Shop said he felt he had to step in when it got bad.
    “I feel that it’s my right to make the statement. It’s the same thing as no shoes no service,” said shop owner Hugo Corral.
    His policy has to do with people who come in reeking of marijuana.
    Corral said he has no problem with those who chose to use marijuana and even calls himself a supporter of the industry.
    However when his customers, many of them with children, started expressing their frustration about the issue he decided it was time for a change.
    Lets see the feds step in on this like they would for minorities, yea that's gunna happen.

    The barber is suppose to have the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason!

    You know this makes no sense don't you? What about prescription drugs that are stolen and sold on the street to people who just want to get high? Shouldn't that be legal? After all if we're going to sell street drugs over the counter, shouldn't it really be all of them no matter how deadly they are?

    A doctor evaluates your medical condition and makes recommendations and prescribes medications to treat that condition. That makes it right. You get that part. It is superior medical knowledge and training. We cannot prevent all risk of harm. People will misuse what they have. They will steal it, or lie to get it. We do not, as intelligent animals, compound that problem and exponentially increase that risk by mindlessly providing mind altering drugs to the general public.

    Unless they are gay, a minority or a woman. You can say no to one group and one only!

    When I smoke, which I haven't for quite some time now, I don't get "wasted". The only time I would smoke to the point of being useless, or the point where it would be obvious that I was high, would be on a weekend when I knew I wasn't going to be leaving the house, and would be on my way to bed soon.

    It's called being responsible.

    I find it amazing that anti-pot bigots are so all-knowing. One toke, and someone is 3 sheets into the wind?? People who smoke are going to get wasted and then perform surgury?? On and on with the hyperbole.

    That punk needs a new residence anyway. An iron cage at Huntsville.

    Not only did he damage property. He also endangered the safety of other residents of the complex.

    I think the story serves to point out how wrong the legalization of pot is. There are millions of people who don't buy into the dumb policy.

    I have had two exposures to pot. On one occasion I was standing next to the open window of a van and the idiots inside the van were smoking pot.
    It smelled like burning alfalfa hay to me.

    The next was that I was part of a jury that affixed a sentence to a young Latino who was guilty of possessing pot. He had hid it in canning jars near a lake and had put a slice of apple into the jars to keep the pot moist. The DA recommended a three year suspended sentence and that is what we agreed to. It was better to leave him free than to put him in the pen where he could learn from the pros, so the DA suggested.

    Agreed. Further, would this even be an issue if someone came in reeking of booze? No and I see no reason why pot is any different.
