Ahhh I forgot that in the States they do drug testing. It's sad that they discriminate based on something that may be irrelevant. When I hire employees, I tell them that I don't care what they do in their free time. All I care about is that they are professional and do their job well.

Needless to say, we are a thriving medical clinic and half our staff are regular smokers / drinkers.

Many insurance carriers in the US (think liability, etc) require random drug screening of employees. And god forbid there is any sort of workplace accident and the employee doesn't pass a screen.

Yes this makes sense. I never considered the legal repercussions. Before weed was legal here in Canada, there wasn't strict enforcement anyways. We would get caught all the time and told to simply "stop it".

In this case, makes sense that you don't want to risk any legal penalties due to a smoking partner. What if it was legal? Would it change your preferences?

Two Fortune 500 companies I worked at also required drug tests to hire - even for more senior positions. I find it stupid, but that’s the way it is.

The interesting thing is OP titles her thread “medicate with”. But then makes clear in one of her posts that she enjoys the lifestyle. Which is it? I think it’s the latter. So just be aware that not everyone wants to get into that lifestyle.

If it was legal, i wouldn't care. As long as it was moderate and not life impacting (much like someone drinking alcohol...moderate? fine. alcoholic level or drinking and driving? no)

I think itís a personal thing as to whether it would bother someone or not. She probably has reasons for having to do it. Itís supposed to be great for chronic pain and you canít really blame someone for wanting to stop the pain. You have to decide if itís a dealbreaker for you or not.

Kindly provide an example where I mentioned 'weed lifestyle'?

Absolutely. But itís odd that she asked if people would be okay, and then went on to argue with those whoíre not.

To be clear, I have no issue with anyone that wants to do it...As for someone who I had to live with? Nah...

And I agree with the others as far as the general "vibe",,,I know a fair amount of pot users...There is a "cultish" feeling about those in that club and if it's not your thing, there will be an incompatibility...Ive also had bad experiences with guys that worked for me and were regular pot users...

I am sure OP would find that there are a lot of people that will actually see it as a plus....Just not me, and some others judging by the responses in the thread..

TFY

If everything smells like skunk, my guess is this person smokes indoors so the smell sticks to surfaces. This is reflective of home maintenance more than the smoking habit, I would say.
Is there a difference in smell between smoking a joint and vaping pot?

Just sayin
We all have to weigh to pros and cons yes. But for me it's the smoking part. If they were having a nibble before bedtime to sleep or for pain I would take that over opioids any day. I'm no virgin to smoking it. Had a lot of years under my belt. I didn't like it anymore because I never got any benefit out of it. It was making me feel crappy, tired/slow.



My mother uses medical MJ products and she's in her 80's. It is a healthier/cheaper choice because she was on some serious pain killers....and that s &*^ is so bad for you. She preaches about the benefits of MJ products to other seniors to help others.

Absolutely. Smoking is the regular way people ingest. Vaporizing simply means heating up the dry herb until it produces a vapour but doesn't burn. I prefer this option as it healthier because you're not inhaling anything that burns, and it also provides a "clear" high. You experience the psychoactive components without the sluggishness or "heaviness" that is commonly associated with smoking.
