I don’t care for the fact that cannabis plus alcohol are treated with unfair standards at a societal level, even though alcohol is actually a drug in its own right, it’s always given its own genre as something distinct from other drugs; It’s also given to children in some locales, plus widely accepted as a morally just way to get intoxicated.
- Even though it’s basically a poison, it’s accepted by all layers of society without question.
I knew a lot of people growing up that would go to work after having a shot of whiskey or a couple of beers, then they were casual about even getting into a motor automobile while under the influence of alcohol. It was a genuinely alarming time to be alive, back when DUIs were not taken as seriously as they are now. It’s the tasks, there just is not fairness when it comes to cannabis use plus alcohol with employees. There’s no protection even if you live in a state where you can get a medical marijuana card. The concern is that THC will stay in your system for weeks at a time after a single dose, then you could smoke weed one week plus be sober for 3 weeks but still fail a drug test. There needs to be employee protections for people who use cannabis. You shouldn’t be barred from using a medicine that has safer plus better for you than alcohol when alcoholics are allowed to drink as much as they want outside of work hours. I just genuinely am cheerful that I have a task where I am allowed to smoke weed if my task boss doesn’t care. It’s genuinely helpful working in an environment where I don’t have to worry about hiding my cannabis use.
