So why the hell can't someone get a job who smoked weed once 3 weeks ago and has 4 micrograms/million over the limit in his pis? There are people who drink every night til they pass out... they get a job. There are people who did cocaine in copious amounts 3 days before... they get the job.
This filter seems ectremely unnecessary.
Let me say that every hard-working, creative, intuitive, moral person I have ever met has smoked weed at least once. Usually more. The people I have met who haven't ever smoked weed and refuse to do so are usually stuck in their shell and egregiously immature. They follow directions and do exactly what they are told.
In fact, the hardest working individuals I know smoke weed quite more often than once in their lifetime. And I know some seriously hard-working individuals. One is a guitar player who does absolutely nothing but music and guitar all day long. Wake to sleep. Nothing.
John mayer gets grammies. He ain't shit compared to my friend, who can't pay the rent cuz he's not famous, doesn't have a pretty face, and can't dance....
Who would you want to work for you? Does it really matter that they smoked weed a couple of times? Do you really think that this kind of drug screening is an accurate representation of a drug problem?
I think that a person's mentality and general character matter way more for a job that requires responsibility. And for those who are impoverished and live a shit-life, weed may be a part of their life. A real JOB might get them OUT of that life.
I just don't get this stupidity.
I want to meet the heads of these decisions and slap them.
What are your thoughts?
P.S. I also know people who work for intel who smoke 8 times a day and are worthless who SHOULD'NT have the job, and their ridiculous weed habit is a big red flag, in that case. However, drug tests would not show that detail.
