Businesses in Washington state, where the drug is legal, and Colorado, where it will be by January, are trying to figure out how to deal with employees who use it on their own time and then fail a drug test.

New Jersey teen wants Easy-Bake Oven to appeal to boysFour-year-old Gavyn Boscio loves to cook and asked for an Easy-Bake Oven for Christmas. But when his big sister went to buy one, she discovered to her disappointment that it comes only in girly pink and purple, with girls â¿¿ and only girls â¿¿ on the box and in the commercials. So the eighth-grader from Garfield, N.J., started an online petition asking Pawtucket, R.I.-based Hasbro to make the toy ovens in gender-neutral colors and feature boys on the package. By Friday the 13-year-old's petition had garnered more than 30,000 signatures in a little more than a week. Celebrity chef Bobby Flay, who owned an Easy-Bake Oven as a boy, is among those weighing in on her side. ___ Cisco grabs for 'No. 1 IT company' crown Cisco Systems Inc. isn't content to be the world's largest maker of computer networking gear. It wants to be the "No. 1" supplier of information technology to big businesses by broadening its offerings of services and software. But when Cisco says "No. 1 IT company," it doesn't mean that it's going to be the biggest-selling company. That goal is out of reach, as IBM Corp.'s revenue is twice that of Cisco. Rather, Cisco CEO John Chambers says he wants the company to loom largest in the minds of its customers and to be the one setting the pace in the industry. Being No. 1, he says, means having the best customer satisfaction and the best profit margins for products.
