    I think you misunderstood what I was meaning. My point was that even if it was legal, the boat owner/captain should have the right to deny use on their ship. The owners' rules being more restrictive than local laws.

    I agree that captains can impose rules, but they need to have reasons for their rules, and there are limits to what rules they can impose. I think at least part of this discussion is whether or not MJ falls within these limits or not. Also, hypothetically if MJ became legal on a federal level, would it fall within these limits or not.

    My apologies

    I concur that they “should”, but even that is fuzzy for US-based businesses offering services to the general public. Laws enacted with the best of intensions too often conflict and override the common sense of the vessel’s master.

    Interesting thread, thanks for posting Wookie.

    'gotta call quadruple BS on that statement. Maybe it's a blessing- if not only because of the lack of smoke damage, but the other points- not.

    That is why I asked about the ADA, but wookie explained that small craft are exempt. I would think that each vessel could have their own list of items that are prohibited onboard, as well as a list of items that are mandatory.

    Either you really have no idea what you're talking about or you were just being sarcastic. I can't quite tell.



    Good decision, wookie. I'd like to think I would have done the same. This, despite the fact that I support legalization. Primarily because I don't think our government has any business writing laws about what a citizen can and can't consume. Until the laws are changed, the smart businessman will abide by them or profit sufficiently from breaking them so as to make it worth their while.

    Please elaborate on why you think I don't know what I'm talking about?

    Then you congratulate Wookie on wanting to arrest and call the CG on his own customers rather than just throw the stash overboard like a reasonable human being because - wait for it - THERES NO PROFIT IN IT? What a 1st degree (avoiding mods banhammer) you are.

    So you call quadruple BS - and then proceed to agree with me on at least some of it. Now please tell me which part you don't agree with?

    FYI - there is a new vape pen legal for sale on Colorado which has sealed, disposable cartridges. They use CO2 extracted oil which contains no plant matter. it is completely odorless because the molecules are encapsulated in a glycerin base. They use the same process used to extract vitamins from fruits/vegetables in a laboratory setting. Dogs won't be able to smell it. That is all.

    Congress repealed boat seizures in 1989 after enacting it in 1988. Cry wolf much Mr. Reagan, I mean wookie?

    I think what I wrote was clear. I agree that no smoke may be a "blessing" but you stated that vaping is odor free, residue free, atypical in appearance, and that the CG and a dog would not find it. I don't claim to know about the new devices you describe, or vaping in space, but in general terms I say you're 0/4 on residue, odor, appearance, and non-detection.

    Funny. You don't claim to know about the devices I describe, but feel confident enough to say I'm totally wrong.

    I think what you wrote is clear, your describing yourself as a troll.
