But to get in trouble for having a joint at your house on Saturday when you have to go into work on Monday is horse shit.
Alcohol is way worse and to my knowledge not many places test for that like they do pot.
Unmotivated and awkward to be around... I'm a little shocked how ill informed so many people are about this subject on this forum.
I know quite a lot of people who are regular weed smokers, it has a fairly different (not totally different of course) effect on each of them. Some of them would not be able to work and are very awkward to be around when high, not all of them though, some are better when they're high, some you can't notice any MAJOR differences with.
It is stupid that places test it though, as if someone doing it on the weekend is gonna be unfit to work, which is bullshit.
However, from the company's point of view it's an illegal substance, and even today where weed is fairly accepted it'll look bad on the company for allowing it. Doesn't stop them from just not testing for it though.
