How to Pass a Saliva Test (Step by Step Instructions)

I don't think anyone should ever show up for work high, or drive under the influence. It just isn't cool. But on the other hand, no one should lose their job because of what they do in the privacy of their own home, either.

Urine tests don't discriminate between people who got high an hour ago or a week ago on their day off. Saliva tests aren't perfect, but they do have a much shorter detection time so they're closer to being fair.

Did you kick back and relax this weekend with a little mary jane? Here's how you can pass a saliva test the next day if you need to:

Need another reason why pot should be legal? I'll give you two good ones: it helps lower the risk and side effects of diabetes AND it helps you lose weight. I'm not making this stuff up. Some smart guys up at Harvard did a study and published their findings in the American Medical Journal: http://www.howtopassadrugtest420.org/17034/marijuana-helps-you-lose-weight/

There's a side effect I hadn't thought of to recreational pot being legal in Washington state. Now they have to 'un-train' drug-sniffing dogs so they won't accidentally detect it! http://www.columbian.com/news/2013/apr/25/bremerton-police-dog-trained-to-ignore-marijuana/

I know some long-time smokers who were able to quit by using e-cigarettes. It sounds like big tobacco has been pressuring the FDA to put the brakes on ecigs, but more and more doctors are jumping into the debate and giving them a thumbs up. Here's a quote from a commentary published last year that pretty much sums it up:

"...Consequently, removing e-cigarettes from the market or discouraging their use could harm public health by depriving smokers of a potentially important option for smoking cessation."

"This week the House is voting on $36 billion in cuts to nutrition assistance, or SNAP, which would kick 2 million people off the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly food stamps), reduce benefits for 44 million more, and drop 280,000 low-income kids from school lunch."

Apparently, some members of Congress believe that tax breaks for the wealthy are more important than feeding hungry children in the U.S.

Wonder how much tax breaks for the wealthy are costing us? This was a real eye-opener: http://www.good.is/post/must-see-chart-tax-breaks-for-the-rich-versus-budget-cuts/

What kills me is how short-sighted this kind of thinking is. How will it improve our economy if we continue to shrink our tax base by forcing even more people below the poverty line?

The original logic behind the so-called 'Bush tax cuts' was that they would stimulate our economy and ultimately benefit everyone. So far, I'm just not seein' it...

This video grossly oversimplifies the many possible options for getting out of the recession. That said, it's a pretty good overview if you're totally clueless about how a large deficit can affect the long term health of the economy.

Why is there still a debate about whether or not we should remove tax breaks for people who have incomes in the millions each year? Warren Buffet isn't alone in publicly stating that he would happy to pay more taxes. I'd seriously like to think that I'd pony up if were in the top 1% of income earners.

Republicans like to use the excuse that the more money the rich make (including them, of course), it will trickle down into the rest of the economy. Well, guess what? It may sound good, but that's a theory that has NEVER been proven to actually work.

The first attempt at trickle-down economics was in the 1890s, and it was a big failure also. Read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trickle-down_economics

This is funny, but NOT... Good food for thought (no pun intended).

HA! I always had my suspicions. That would technically make Rose a murderess, wouldn't it?
