Q: 

Can social services take children because the parent smokes marijuana (Pennsylvania)?

A:  simply put ues they can The short answer is yes. The longer answer is that you would probably be ordered to stop smoking marijuana and would be required to submit to random drug tests and probably attend parenting classes before they would take your children. And if you refused to jump through their hoops THEN your child would be taken. my brothers wifes parents had all of there kids taken without warning. they even took a kid that was just there to be watched for the day that wasnt theres. all they smoked was weed. they told them if you both can pass a drug test you can have them back. i used to smoke it too, but I would never have left a bong on the table! As far...

Q: 

Can some one tell me why smoking weed isn't legal yet in the united states?

A:  Marijuana is a schedule 1 drug.. That stupidity is why it''s illegal. These are the qualifications of a schedule 1 drug: (A) The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse. (B) The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States. (C) There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision. Sure doesn''t sound like pot fits that criteria to me. I agree with ladyliberty. Eventually, people found out that smoking weed ruins lives, so they stopped and ever since then "weed" has been illegal. In addition to that, marijuana is also classified as a toxic plant, poisonous. It is also one of the biggest reasons for psychotic...

Q: 

My freinds dad is turning my name into the police for smoking weed, is there anything he cops will do?

A:  i don''t think that would be enough for having a ua. but if they even do anyting. that is if he even tells them. they would have to make probable cause. hes just trying to scare you. period. Don''t spend another second worrying about it the LEO''s will just laugh in the guys face. Nah. The police won''t do anything just on his word. They will have to catch you in the act of smoking it, selling it or if they pull you over and it is in plain sight. The worst they could do with a name is check you out and see if you have any priors, and they may question you. It might be a good idea to lay off the weed for a minimum of 2 weeks in case that happens. Don''t let them into your house if you have it laying out in your living room or bedroom. So do you think this will be...

Q: 

Is it legal to smoke weed in the territory of the embassy of the Netherlands?

A:  The law of the host nation ''applies'' but is normally not enforced. The embassy is not ''extraterritorial'' despite common opinion to the contrary, it is a terrritory over which the host nation has agreed not to exercise authority, and to protect, unless invited to enter by the guest nation. So a murder, or drug deal, done in the NL embassy in say, Bermuda, is subject to Bermudan law, but unless the embassy permits it, the law cannot be enforced. If the person involved has diplomatic immunity, then they cannot be arrested or detained or tried without permission of the NL. Typically they will be expelled from Bermuda. Now in some nations crimes committed in their embassies overseas may also be a crime under that...

Q: 

Smoking weed in the Dutch embassy?

A:  It depends on which country the embassy is in, so no. In the Netherlands itself, since a recent change in Dutch law, all smoking indoors in a public building is illegal. This has created a problem for coffeeshops, but they have been allowed to create separate smoking rooms or else they would have gone out of business completely. The legal situation with weed there is that it is illegal, but consumption of it and possession of up to one ounce has been officially decriminalised and so the police will ignore it. Coffeeshops are quite tightly regulated - it is not legal for them to sell you more than 5g at a time (about a fifth of an ounce), they may not sell alcohol, and no new ones are being given licences to operate. The Netherlands isn''t...

Q: 

Smoking weed on youtube?

A:  The public is not likely to respect laws that are not respectable. Political opportunism (populism) has distorted the facts to sensationalism. Recently, a multi million dollar study funded by the US government that required 3/4 years of study was rejected because the conclusions did not satisfy their views. Credibility on this subject by governments is eroding with time. Look how this hysteria started in the 1920''s and its progress. No, most agencies don''t have time to chase after you tube posters smoking weed. Now, if they are dumb enough to include their address, school, etc.....sure, I''ll embarass them by showing up and I might even arrest them just to make a point. It is perfectly legal in some countries like the Netherlands. The...
