Because it is an illicit drug and they are liable for your health and wellbeing. I know it doesn't seem like it is that big a deal, but when the DEA is breathing down your neck, you are very careful to take drug abuse seriously. I suppose they figure if you are likely to use marijuana then you are more likely to abuse other drugs as well. Just my thoughts,
It might have something to do with the rules those places have cuz there are alot of "BAD" Pain Management Clinics out there that are in it for the$ & that might be another reason,if u get kicked out you usually have to do there assessment again(usually a couple hundred$) Then they(at least with Methadone) they drop your dose but the price is still the same so less meds same price means there making $ there too. Some are legit,but pot & opiates are a world of difference & they may have to enforce it because contrary to popular belief POT IS STILL ILEGAL IN ALL 50 STATES!! Yes California passed a referendum but federal law still trumps all state laws if they violate federal law.
And also true is that even the states that have decriminalized weed there are still plenty of " SUPER COPS" in certain countys that will still bust u,which is such a god damn joke it makes me sick!! Why don't they take all of the millions possibly billions they waste on chasing,catching,due process(court) & then the billions of dollars they waste imprisoning non-violent weed dealers & they just didn't learn from prohibition? & so many more people have died since the FAILED WAR ON DRUGS then during prohibition. All there're doing is creating supply & demand! Legalize weed & all or most & the ones who would probably still sell some because they probably have some killer(not laced) just some very good weed,which anyone could grow if they took the time,& that's where the government could be able to monitor it better by having people who want to grow there own could have to buy a affordable grow permit,manufactor there own for people who don't want to deal with growing there own+they could tax it. Another thing there are all the products that can be made from hemp that could save tons of natural resources like hemp makes stronger paper(cheaper too) stronger cheaper clothes instead of just cutting down huge forest,I'm sure they could turn it into a bio-fuel like switch grass because I think we've all seen the disaster trying use corn i.e food shortages,huge amounts of power it cost to make it & many other sources of non-fossil fuels. Sorry I deveated away from the question that was asked,but I think they are all intertwined in a way. Like I say supply & demand & if most drugs weren't illegal who's gonna wanna pay outrageous prices,which finance the gangs & violence!! WHEN WILL THEY LEARN? OF COURSE THERE WILL STILL BE PROBLEMS WITH DRUGS,BUT JUST LIKE ALCOHOL THEY WERE ABLE TO GET IT UNDER CONTROL AS FAR AS MAKING A F*CKN LOAD OF MONEY ALL THE TAXES,OWI CONVICTIONS & FINES. Also there are a lot of tragedies also because of drunk driving,but compair the # of fatalities with drunk driving & then compare that to the # of pot caused fatalities & if this So-Called news reports & they NEVER GIVE YOU THAT FIGURE,I WONDER WHY? NO,IT COULDN'T BE THAT THESE MULTI-BILLION ALCOHOL LOBBIEST HAVE PUT OUT ALL THIS FALSE INFO ABOUT WEED OUT THERE,COULD THEY? I COULDN'T SEE THEM LIEING JUST LIKE BIG TABACCO COULD THEY? Oh yeah,one more product hemp can be used for OIL!!! And there are so many more that if I looked them all up are planet would be in a lot better shape in 10 yrs,are prisions could be used to keep the Pedophiles & violent crimes & the hard drug dealers & being a very hardcore opiate addict(Heroin,Dilaudid,MS Contin & any other opiate I could I.V. Again sorry I wondered but I think I answered your question to the most part. If u found this helpfull please check that u did. Thanks
I agree that they are looking to judge your character and think that you are a bad guy for breaking the law which makes you a bad guy all around. It really is ignorant.
