Legal pot could be big employment headache

Full story: The Press-Enterprise

If California follows other states and opens marijuana for recreational use, it could backfire because most employers screen for drugs and fire those who test positive.

"legal" pot should become an employment issue and should not be exempt from a list of banned substances by an employer.

Today you show up to work drunk you get sent home, suspended and/or fired if NOT hired. Why should pot be any different.

Why are the potheads treated so special? Why do the potheads think they are so special?

I can't even light up a cigarette in public and the dopers can stink up the place with their pot?

Yep, would anyone want to fly in a plane a stoned mechanic repaired ? Surgery by a Dr who smokes a joint during a coffee break ? Sentenced by a judge or represented by a lawyer who gets 'legally' high ?
