The Smoking Argument

Smokescreen in the Initiative

Advocates of the Marijuana Initiative claim that smoking marijuana will not be allowed by the initiative. Really?

In section 58-37-3.6b of the Utah Cannabis Medical Act, the initiative states that smoking will only be unlawful if cannabis is ignited at over 750 degrees (F) and involves an open flame. However, cannabis begins burning at about 450 degrees (F) and can easily be lit without a flame (car cigarette lighter, stove, etc.).

And really, who will be monitoring whether a flame is used to light up anyway? If this initiative passes, smoking marijuana will not be monitored or discouraged at all.
