I was reading this article adn thinking that how many people actually do this here you are riding along on a public form of transportation and the crew could be stoned or drunk in know the railways have made great improvment in this adn airlines but it is still against the law to test people who have jobs like this what in the hell is that about http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2007/10/17/bc-cannabisbcferry.html

I know people who smoke pot and work and they do really good jobs at what they do. The Household Survey found that 15.9 million people in the US smoke Pot. Come on now, that is alot of people, and alot of them work. People have the imgages of Reefer Madness still stuck in their heads if they think other wise. Alot of successful people smoke and smoke on the job. I have to agree some jobs, they should not be smoking on, but wars have been won, with people smoking it. From the Revolutionary War to current wars in the century and even before. So if wars can be won, while high, other jobs can be done too high. Though I don't want to be on a plane, with the pilot high, I would though on the other token get in a car with a friend, I knew had smoked a joint.

Some people smoke pot on the job, but it makes them do a bad job at what they do. I think that smoking pot on the job is not good.

alot of my friends do that. one of my friend smoke alot of pot before he goes to work at this restaurant, he seems fine y'know. its more about the attitude and how you control yourself.

Man if they were high at the time of hitting the iceburg- they would have never hit it because they would have been so paranoid and paying total attention....LOL

Well huggie I have nothing against people smoking pot but that is ridiculous! I know if I were in a job like that I would be more than happy to be tested just to make people feel safer! Same old, same old, those in the wrong have greater human rights than their victims or potential victims! xxx

I think if a company is paying you for a service you should give them the best service you can no matter what. If you have to smoke up before going towork or while at work then look for a different job

I use to smoke b4 i went to work but that was working at mcdonalds or something, I dont think every employer should test there employees its our right to smoke if we want to. I am one that thinks it should be legal to smoke, NOW I do think it is wrong to work why you are under the influence of anything. And that if you are noticed that you should be fired on the spot. Especially if you work in a hard job like that. I know htat i worked in a warehouse (yes i still got high b4 work, I know stupid) and its not really good to get high b4 work, I did fine but there can always be accedints. there is time for play and time for work. People need to relize that they can wait a couple of hours to smoke
