The issue at hand here is the right to privacy of what one is doing at home. Abusing drugs on the job is bad, clearly. The problem with marijuana urine testing is that it tests for byproducts that last in your body for up to months after the actual act of smoking.

Now, I'll say, because marijuana is illegal right now this is just fine to me. Things have stirred up a lot regarding marijuana legalization around the US in the last few years, and it may become more easily obtainable through legal channels in the next decade or so.

dinklanksy: Alcohol cannot be tested for easily, it goes right through you. Only easy to test for when you're inebriated.

Again showing no understanding of that what your talking about.

1. pot has no long term side affects.. so as long as you do not smoke at work, you not be high at work.

2. Marijuana is 10 times less addicting than both caffeine and sugar. So unless you can not seem to work because of sugar. I truely do not think you have to fear that from pure marijuana.

3. Marijuana has been shown to aid people with ADD & ADHD + other illnesses/disabilities.. Making it so they can function normally. In their cases I rather higher a pot smoker with ADHD over a person who does not smoke with ADHD. Because it has been proven marijuana aids them to function normal.

4. The only people who prophet of Marijuana right now are the Anti-drug groups working for America's Government, and the drug dealers. An it is costing us the people billions.




Why would long term affects be important if you go to work five days a week? Pot has too many short term effects that can hinder your job performance, for example difficulty thinking and loss of coordination. And so what if its not addicting, pot may be harmless but it certainly doesn't do good for your body too. I understand that marijuana can aid people with disabilities, but I said already that people shouldn't use drugs JUST to get high.


Again if you smoked a 4 hours before going to work. BY the time your at work the side affects are no longer there meaning their would be no hindrance to the job at hand. Because the side affects would have past and you not be high anymore.
No good affects, Pot can be used as a relaxer or a stress reliever after work, it can also healthy for you wen ingested as food. Do not see them Anti-drug groups pointing out those facts do they... Why because they like making money of blind ignorance.
Wen somethings affects only last for a few hours at most, then it would not affect work would it, as long as the person does not smoke jest before work or at work. So the fact that the affects has only a short life span, it would not affect the person work would it.
on another note their are studies that show kids who eat marijuana do better in school than kids who do not. That plant wen added to food helps people to concentrate on the task at hand. So a small pot brownie for lunch at work is A ok in my scientific opinion.

He's not crying, asshole, he's expressing a completely valid opinion. Way to sound like a douche.



Sound to me like he's complaining because he wants to smoke pot but now he cant.
To me.... this is just another "LEGALIZE IT!!!"-thread. And based on the situation he's in, I call that crying. Especially when you look at the job situation in the US.
I bet he'll get tested for more than just pot too. I don't think they will hire him if he shoots heroin. They have to draw the line somewhere.

Then he wrote:
"but stuff like pot doesn't even necessarily affect your job performance"

But it MIGHT affect your job performance.
I perfectly understand why a company would go through this. Even if it's law like someone wrote.

I don't have anything against pot. But if I owned a company I wouldn't want my employees to be positive on drug tests








Get off your high horse dude...he's not proclaiming for legalization, he is curious about other people's opinions on whether it is a company's business if someone uses drugs or not. I think that by the time most people join the work force, they'll have passed the stage of experimenting with drugs and would only use them to relax. Anyone with any iota of responsibility would refrain from getting stoned before going to work. I feel like if one enjoys a few bong rips after work, then hey, that's his preference, as long as he doesn't get twisted before work.

Also, most drug tests will test for a few main chemicals - the chemicals in marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, opiates, etc. Don't try to lump in a pot smoker with a junkie though, it just makes you sound like even more of a tool.

Like I said, I don't have anything against pot.

But put yourself in the seat of the employer. Even if you don't have any moral problems with pot, it's still illegal.
An employee that do illegal things is bad for business (even if the employer shouldn't care about what the employees do at home) and you can easily replace that employee.
The question is where to draw the line. So why not draw it at the law?

So in the end, it all comes down to if pot should be illegal or not.

Smoking pot even 4 hours before you go to work won't help much, it stays in your system for about a month.
I understand the good benefits of pot, but can you really say the good outweigh the bad? This survey you are talking about, for all we know they could have surveyed only 5 kids, a majority out of 5 benefiting from pot is not very reassuring. Every time you smoke pot there is a chance of you hurting yourself, or worse, your loved ones in one way or the other. Have you ever though about why its been outlawed, why its treated like a drug by the majority of the population, when stuff like sugar and caffeine is absolutely fine to ingest in public? Give me another reason besides the anti-drug groups making money off this, you guys aren't exactly saving money either buying pot. And c'mon If people want to relax or treat yourself there are many ways to do so with 100% benefits, pot isn't the only enjoyable thing in this world.

just because something is legal doesn't make it right. and just because it's not evil doesn't make it legal..

I'm going to be a camp counselor this summer, and I'm going to get drug tested soon. I'm going to pass, but drug tests kinda piss me off, no pun intended. I mean, some drugs can have really bad effects on people that would affect their job performance, but stuff like pot doesn't even necessarily affect your job performance, and even if it's illegal, if you buy it on your own time and smoke it on your own time, why should your employment care? I just think it's another sign of the ignorant masses buying into the media-fueled fear of drugs


It's so true! Pot has never led me to do anything stupid. I'm in the same boat as u and, ya, it pisses me off too.

yes it can be traced in your system for a month.. but any affects from it last only hours at most. Just because a month later some one can still tell you smoked it do to a piss test. Does not mean anything because their is no long term side effects. Can you list any long term effects of pot? What about ingesting pot, can you list many bad affects of eating pot? The fact is their are legal drugs and food more harmful for you that pot both smoked or eaten. Yet you do not see the propaganda hounds trying to track them down.
I will repeat my self can you list harmful affects of pot that stay with you more than a hour after...
beer's short term intoxication is lot more harsh than pot, but unlike pot it has harmful long term side affects as well, like liver failure.
Yet it is legal. Same with sugar, sugar has many bad long term side affects like eye failure, diabetes, and is 10 times more addicting than pot. Same for Caffeine, Yet their legal, and I am betting you use those harmful drugs that are much more harmful than pot don't you... Little hypocrite.
Just because something is illegal does not mean its bad for you... (I ask you to do a search... try to find out why Marijuana is Illegal in the first place.. See where it takes you.. if you do this you might find that it started out as a propaganda attack on Mexicans long time ago. ) But don't believe me look it up for your self.

Oh please... you've obviously never smoked before. Pot heads won't hurt anyone, unless "anyone" is a bag of Dorritos.
Posted 5/14/10
I understand your feelings that you should be able to make your own decisions as to what you like to smoke. However society as a whole has agreed that smoking pot is not good for you. So laws have been passed to protect the masses who may not fully understant the detrimental effects of marijuana. Believe me. Marijuana can run your life. I'm not trying to say that you will go crazy and jump off a bridge when you smoke reefer but there are other effects which while more subtle are almost as debilitating. For one when you smoke pot you feel great and never want to do anything but giggle, eat and take a nap. For another it will reinforce the belief that drug laws are wrong/incorrect and that if you try a snif of say, cocaine that you be ok as well. It can lead to a downward sprial in your life as you first enjoy the high and later become dependant on drugs just to feel normal/good.

Put out the joint and flush it down the hopper. You will be much better off.

I am a hypocrite, but aren't we all. I never said I didn't use caffeine or sugar(we need sugar in our bodies to function anyways), I'm saying that you don't have to use something that is illegal, when there are million things that you can use legally, with 100% benefit to your body. Running or taking a trip to the gym sure does your body good a hell lot better than staying at home smoking pot. I did not mentioned long term effects in the post above, yet you keep pointing that out. And yes, there are short term affects that last more than 1 hour, most of the effects last between 1.5 to 4 hours depending on your metabolism. Marijuana is stored in your fat cells, and it alters your perceptions for a few days. Marijuana also contains the same compounds as tobacco, sometimes in higher concentrations. If you smoke pot five days a week you have the same change of getting cancer as a pack-a-day smoker(long term effect).

Yes, I agree that even though pot is illegal it may not necessarily be harmful to you. For many people, pot may even benefit them, a lot. But why would anyone with a choice use something that is illegal when they can be using something else that is legal AND has similiar relaxing effects. But hell, this is a free country, you can do whatever you want, I just felt like debating.

Marijuana is stored in your fat cells, and it alters your perceptions for a few days. Marijuana also contains the same compounds as tobacco, sometimes in higher concentrations. If you smoke pot five days a week you have the same change of getting cancer as a pack-a-day smoker(long term effect).

Yes, I agree that even though pot is illegal it may not necessarily be harmful to you. For many people, pot may even benefit them, a lot. But why would anyone with a choice use something that is illegal when they can be using something else that is legal AND has similiar relaxing effects. But hell, this is a free country, you can do whatever you want, I just felt like debating.



I am tired of the debate but do a little search on something for me.. You find you will not get cancer from marijuana. But don't take my word for it, look it up.
