    I recently attended a conference in Michigan, a state which voted to make MJ recreational use legal. It was evident most employers will be watching performance more closely as well as behavior once the employee returns from lunch. No one should be going to work impaired, but unfortunately, there are those who do. Functioning alcoholics, those who are addicted to opioids, MJ users, the cocaine addicts on Wall Street, Adderall users, the list goes on. It’s only right for any employer to fire someone who is having performance issues, no matter what the cause, substance abuse or not. Be warned MJ users who reside in states where it is legal, those you report to are keeping a watchful eye. You are far better off waiting until you punch the clock at the end of the day before you partake, should that be your initiative.

    Alcohol & pain med addictions don’t support pot use via an ‘if that, why not this’ argument.

      Penalty flag for weak attempt at strawman use. Cap’n wrote “No one should be going to work impaired…” and “It’s only right for any employer to fire someone who is having performance issues, no matter what the cause…”

      Polar, if I ever had an employee who was a stoner, he or she would be out the door in a heart beat.

        Funny thing is, you probably do and don’t even know it.
