Firing someone because they come to work for you stoned or drunk is perfectly within your right to do.The point is that legalizing MJ will mainstream the drug to the point where everyone who does it now will think it’s ok to do whenever they please. As someone stated earlier airplane mechanics were fired for testing positive. How many short screws do you want on the wing of the airplane you will be boarding?
The funny thing here is the comparison to booze. If someone’s drunk I can figure that out in 10 seconds. If someone’s is stoned they can hide it pretty good. It takes a little time to figure out what is wrong . I stated earlier in a post that a stoner put up scaffolding and it fell on my truck. The fact is he hid between my truck and the house to smoke his bowl. I was in the basement installing a gas furnace watching him out of the window. When I saw him starting to setup the scaffolding I asked him if he would like me to move my truck . No dude is how he replied. Within 5 minutes he had managed to drop 3 sections of scaffolding onto my truck and with all the noise he still tried to quickly pull it off as it didn’t happen. Then he snickered and said I probably should have moved my truck. Just by the grace of God that guy went home with all of his teeth. Now I was working on somebody else’s dime that day and this guy had a stupidvisor on the job who explained to me how my truck was so old that it wasn’t worth fixing. That’s when I realized from the stupidvisor down the entire crew were essentially stoned. My heating job was done in about 4 days and the roofers were done after I had completed my job. In that time they managed to run over an electricians ladder , back into a plumbers truck and broke 2 of the homeowners windows.
Now I do realize that some people are not able to function at a high level and they tend to migrate to jobs that do not require intense mental concentration,however sometimes I wonder are they stupid or are they dumming themselves down with the weed. Anyway if I hire someone to do a job and they are stoned they will get the boot . I hav e had cement contractors and roofers work on my house that had coolers full of beer and they did a fine job.
What they drink smoke chew snort etc on their own time is none of an employers business and certainly none of the govs business.
The gov created a drup problem, on purpose, then spent trillions with the excuse of fighting a " war " on drugs.
The war on drugs did nothing but create a huge federal bureaucracy, countless thousands of LE related jobs, used asxan excuse to trash the 4th Amendment until its non existent. militarize police and create to the extent the nation would tolerate it a police state.
Ill take the folks being left alone to do with themselves as they darn well please until they actually do a direct tangible harm to someone else over all the aforementioned gov trash.
