i say, whats it matter either way? i use to be 100% against pot, but anymore, even tho i dont smoke the stuff, im more understanding of it and how little it truley does to you. but, at the same time, its just simply the law to not smoke it. so, if you're getting ready to go into a job that wants to screen you, and you are smart enough to not smoke anything before the screening by how ever many days it can be traced back to, then you have nothing to worry about anyways. so why complain about the screening process. i dont think its an invasion of our privacy so much as the company trying to protect their own asses.

its like where i work, i drive a forklift 12 hrs a night, and if you wreck one, you have to go and get a drug test. but its purely just to save their asses. plus, you dont want a guy driving a 9000 pound or 18000 pound fork lift if hes high or drunk..lol...that could make for a bad day

BTW, new hire screening and random testing tests for a lot more than just weed. So really weed is probably the least of the worries for potential employers. OK, just had that thought and wanted to share it. IBB
Kinda one of the reasons why I posted it, to see how many would go right to weed.

all you have to do is have a fit for duty screening it takes your BAC and tests you for drugs then no one can bitch that they are singling out druggies if you blow a .04 you are asked to go home and not to return for 5 years. and i havent smoked weed but i do drink and smoke cigarettes but it is my responsibility not to have a beer 5 hours before work. some poeple dont abide by that rule but the money i am making right now to post this is just stupid to lose it for a beer or poppin a pill

The general pot smoker that smokes it in their own home is only hurting themselves and as long as it doesn't involve me I really do not care, but if someone brings weed into our house or is impared by it at my work then it involves me and I am not afraid to send them on their way or turn them in. My reasoning is that even if it is less harmfull then some legal drugs it is still illegal. This puts me and my family at risk for the loss of a job or a stint in the county jail. In my teens I saw some really idiotic things done by Pot heads (usually followed by "Dude!!!that was so cool...Dude!!! are you OK...HEHEHE WOW MAN") but I have never seen any that were a danger to others unless their stunts were done in a car. I work, and have worked in some really dangerous jobs. I would not want an alcoholic or a stoner watching my back when it comes to my livelyhood or safety. I will agree with what was said. In some jobs it doesn't matter if a person is a stoner. I agree the government has no right to make drug testing a law, but if you are hireing in as a govt. employee they have every right to test just like a company that is attempting to protect their own interests.

Found several sites to read up on become better informed on the drug. This one seemed to be the most authentic to me.

http://www.acde.org/common/Marijana.htm

Quoted from site as "Marijana dangers"
  • Impaired perception
  • Diminished short-term memory
  • Loss of concentration and coordination
  • Impaired judgement
  • Increased risk of accidents
  • Loss of motivation
  • Diminished inhibitions
  • Increased heart rate
  • Anxiety, panic attacks, and paranoia
  • Hallucinations
  • Damage to the respiratory, reproductive, and immune systems
  • Increased risk of cancer
  • Psychological dependency

Not government brain washing...you asked stoner or drunk? We answered and it turned that way cuz you didn't give us any other choices.

The replies were heading towards asnwering your original question...but you as the OP asked a different question...that's how it got turned....unless you work for the government!
