I work for a small clinic in Northern CA. There are three RN's on staff at all time. Recently our Office Manager decided to start drug testing of all staff including Doctors. Well, one of the Nurses I work with came back positive for marijuana use. My thought was "Well she should not be doing it anyways" I was actually glad to see her get in trouble.
After discusing it with the Doctors they came up with a new unwritten policy. They will overlook marijuana. Basiclly, you can smoke all the pot you want but just on the weekends not during "on call" days. I questioned one of the Doctors about it and his response was to "chill"
Does this seem wrong to anybody else? Do Nurses really smoke pot on there days off?
and i think what PEOPLE do outside of the work place is none of YOUR business.
so long as they are not impaired on the job or smoking (or drinking) at work, i have to agree with the doc...just CHILL.
you talk about the airline pilots that USED marijuana...how much did they use? a joint? an ounce? did they smoke from a pipe? did they use a bong? all of these things have an impact.
you can make studies say anything you want to.
i know that when i used to go out and get drunk i was impaired the next day as well.
and no im not a smoker,(i have the most boring urine in the world) but it does bother me that others are so quick to judge a pot smoker as they sip on their drinks. one is no better than the other.
