I think it is terrible that these employees were smoking marijuana during their break and were going to go back to work like this. I feel so sorry for the disabled who rely on us to take care of them.

Well, it has been proven from statistics, car and Driver Magazine and real life examples (do a youtube search for Marijuana and Driving) pot makes drivers better and safer drivers.

I don't think pot is going to make them cut crash and shovel snow any worse with them working as grounds keepers. actually, I would rather have stoned people taking care of mental people instead of these straight edge angry people like we see with some cops that tend to like to beat their wives and be involved in sex crimes.

If they didn't have applications,up their as...es, the O.D. Center would have put up with this, just like they was. This did not just start!

If they legalize pot the goverment will sell it for a higher price, and tax it too. It will be so high, until you can't afford it. Then every time you look, they are raising the price. I THINK THEY WANT THIS TOO.
