Yes, thank you. Without getting into a discussion completely off topic, I may have been referring more toward pressure in delivery.

And someone as high as a kite will say "no" on all three questions and get hired. Marijuana wasn't one of the no-nos.
Many people are routinely drug tested; many jobs require drug testing prior to being hired.
Is that fair? What if a person likes to smoke pot from time to time on the weekends? Doesn't mean he's a drug addict and incapable of doing his job.
A person could go and drink on the weekends and still do his or her job on Monday morning.
I can't stand all this probing into peoples lives. I understand why it is done, especially with healthcare workers, police, ambulance drivers emts, etc., but, there are teas people can drink to cover the drugs in your system. We've had quite a few cops and firefighters here busted for selling drugs, mainly oxycontin.
A person could have a prescription for pain medication and be higher than a person who smoked a joint on the weekend.

With the fiscal cliff looming for the United States, some Republican members of Congress said Sunday they are ready to break a long standing pledge not to raise taxes.

"The only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid becoming Greece. And Republicans should put revenue on the table," South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on ABC's "This Week."

Read more of the discussion of the fiscal on "This Week" today.

Graham's comments followed those by another Republican senator, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, who said last week he'll no longer abide by the pledge.

"I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge," he said in a local interview.

He got support today from House member Peter King, another Republican from New York.

"I agree entirely with Saxby Chambliss -- a pledge he signed 20 years ago, 18 years ago is for that Congress," King said on NBC's "Meet the Press." He added, "The world is changed and the economic situation is different."

Actually, I was going to say marijuana will eventually be legalized in all 50 states and you can bet people will be puffing away anytime and anywhere.
Even though it distorts perception and affects one's ability to think clearly, those of us who don't like the smell of marijuana will just have to tolerate it - and those stoned on it.
Wait and see.
And maybe the lesson has been learned that imposing your habits upon others just because you have an overblown sense of your own entitlement is something that will not be tolerated in today's society.

Anyway, by default most pot smokers will just chill out at home. Maybe you should try some. For, you know, the chill out part. Then we can start calling you Bob Marley and all will be right with the world.

You own it. All of it. We'll see who's lamenting in 2016.
After what Bush and the Republicans did to this country we may still be lamenting in 2016. The last global financial collapse took a lot longer to recover from as well.

Sigh, if only Bush hadn't stolen the election in 2000 we might have continued the 8 year of peace and prosperity we had enjoyed under Clinton.

But alas.

Hang on I have to grab a tissue, I always shed a tear when I think back to the 2000 election and what might have been

WTH kind of teacher smoked in a classroom.
Even 45 years ago, that was UNheard of, let alone ever seen-in CIVILIZED America anyway.
You've probably never been in a classroom in your life.

I went to school in Massachusetts; in elementary school, nearly all the teachers smoked and they did so in the classroom and the breakroom. In highschool, we students were allowed to smoke in class; you're an idiot.

Its fun to watch Republicans wanting to cut Medicare, Medicaid, Social; Security, veteran benefits, etc while being willing to send us over the cliff fighting for tax cuts for the wealthy.

Evidently, they still don't get it as to why they lost this past election.

Evidently most seem their pledge to an over sized lobbyist is more important than their pledge to this country.
