Why is it that it's OK for my colleagues to get drunk every night during the week, but I can potentially get fired for smoking a joint on the weekend?

Umm I don't know, the law maybe?

I can be drug tested because the client requires it and I accept that it comes with my job. THC stays inyour system much longer than other drugs. I think marijuana should be legal but I also understand the rules and laws, and adherence which comes with my chosen industry.

Can agree, have done many of the stupidest things of my life while heavily intoxicated, have only ever eaten excessive amounts of food and stared at walls for a lengthy time while high.

It's a ridiculous law. I can't wait for the day when cannabis becomes a mainstream substitute for drinking. Going out and smoking pot/conversing with strangers sounds infinitely more appealing than getting dumb on alcohol. The world would be a better place if people used cannabis instead of alcohol

Come to California, it's going to be legal here next year 😄

It's a dumb law but it is the law so if you want to risk your job over weed go ahead just don't whine if it gets you in trouble.

Refuse the drug test. The client can either trust you or not. I have refused at three clients and never had the refuse to keep me on the project

In the past I have also been able to schedule my own tests... So I just waited 3 or 4 weeks, took a break, and passed no problem

Help! I’m a decent teacher but admin has a target on my back this year & NO ONE knows why. I’m receiving my second write-up for an absolutely ridiculous reason (my rep agrees that it’s total crap but they manipulate the wording just-so to make it sound legit), but a third & I can be fired. I have to finish the year where I am to have my student loans forgiven. I’m terrified to go to work every day. A large part of my future is on the line & I’m stuck. It’s so unjust but I have no recourse.
