to YOU Marye.
offending posts nuked. Back to your regularly scheduled topic. Thank you.
cut it out. I am nuking the preceding posts and returning this topic to people talking about their jobs. I do not want to block you, but the last half dozen posts at least are seriously out of line. Just stop. Thank you.
eltoro, I knew I'd get some here on this site. As it should be Tigerlilly, I guess the "land of the free" ain't as free as some think. I remember when I was 17, in the long, long ago, before drug test, when you could get a job based on your qualifications, instead of the way it is now. Ah, memories, we shall enjoy them.
Actually, I'm kinda excited about working again, being retired is kind of a drag.
are unconstitutional and illegal, thank goodness. If someone has a problem with substance abuse that affects their job, it is dealt with by the employer, WHEN and IF such work disruption occurs. It is not considered to be the employer's business what employees do with their free time.
By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean.

I've been off site for a while and wasn't here to help Marye defend my post ie "say no to drug tests"
First off, I want to appoligize for offending Stuman, gee Stu, I didn't say YOU were lame, slow etc... and thank the stars there are some drug free workers out there who are not lame, slow, uninformed.
What I was referring to is that there are quality drivers, mechanics and even astrophysics who smoke but can't get a job due to drugtests. And even the best drug free mechanic can forget to tighten a bolt.
I, personally, don't even consider pot smokers as "drug users", I wouldn't want a "drug user" to fix my car, but pot smokers, that's another story. Pot smokers aren't gonna rob you for a joint. I think lumping these two together is where the entire "misinformation" begins. It's like comparing apples to oranges.
Stu, pot smokers do deliver cd's and dvd's, and most rodies I've ever known were smokers.
I realize by rereading your many posts on this subject that you got p/oed, but you are very critical of smokers and completely closed minded about it. And, please tell me what is NORMAL?
I agree with Marye and thank you for clarifying what my point was, you must know someone in the same boat who could not get a job due to non conformity, what I or anyone does off the job is no one's business and should not have anything to do with job performance PERIOD, if I screw up, then do what you must and I will accept the consequences, but to judge me, even before I have been hired, is insane, closed minded, and "slow, lame and misinformed"
Marye said it best, it is these workplaces and limited education that is in question. Who wants to work for (or with) a bunch of mindless conformists?
It is these companies that hire the "clean and sober" even if "slow and ill informed" just because they don't partake over the sometimes better, more qualified smoker that I am referring to. This is a personal observation that I have witnessed in the past 23 months.
Once again, thank you Marye for being the voice of reason on this site, and Stu, keep on truckin on that straight and narrow road.
I'm a semi-retired tyedied MBA and I spend most of my time doing stuff related to fresh water fishing.
