    Hmmm...this begs of one of the best Don Draper lines...when questioned why he never acknowledged or "pats" his employee on the back or even thanks them...he says..rather gruffly: "THATS WHAT THE MONEY IS FOR" as in...quit your your job...its America...capitalism...who cares about "recognition" your employer certainly does not.

    Sadly this does not "seem" the place to deliberate the absurd hypocrisy surrounding marijuana use/laws/morality etc...personally...I would much rather work with somebody that smokes a little weed than a drinker or even a cigarette smoker for that matter...also...ever seen a person "jonsing" for a cigarette...again the unabashed hypocrisy of our society is mind boggling...then again alcohol and cigarettes being legal and absolutely doing nothing but killing people keeps me in a good cardiac job

    Interesting observation this OP would have made if it did not seem so limited in its scope. Having come from a world of construction workers and having witnessed some of the most gracious, calm...grammatically correct and professional people in that world nothing I've ever seen even in the most intense Hospital ED... Critical Care Unit excetera excetera ...basically everything that was mentioned above has ever crossed my mind as being "too much" or "unbearable". Seems like a thick skin needs to be grown here...the reality is having been around the block a few times that I have seen poor decorum poor grammar excetera in every Walk of Life I don't care what color your collar is blue white purple brown...(sorry for any grammatical mishaps im attempting a hybrid talk text)😁

    Had a patient roll into PCU with a red toe. That was it. No other hx. A red toe, in a PCU bed.

    MRI done, nothing. Blood cultures, clear. Pt requested to have the toe amputated....AND THEY DID.

    She was on the unit for like a week.

    Most ridiculous thing I've seen in 12 years.
    Hmmmmm...incurable gout perhaps???

    Quote from Libby1987
    To both poster quoted and everyone else directing criticism to the employers..

    This is the society we live in, one full of hypocrisy. When the majority of society decides marijuana use is acceptable and testing parameters are established then employers can follow suit. But when society as a whole votes marijuana as illegal, there's too much liability. That's not on the govt or the employer, iit's on most of everyone we share this country with.

    Take it up with your friends and family, unless 100% of them support legal recreational and medicinal use and positive pre employment screens at the polls.
    I am absolutely directing this at "society" corporate employers are merely extensions of that hypocrisy...thanks for taking notice...we all know once corporate america starts making profit then all the "idealogy" and "moral" outrage toward marijuana will simply cease to exist...doubtful in my lifetime...we shall see

    Quote from Sour Lemon
    I've never known a hospital (or other nurse employer) that didn't drug test as a condition of employment and require consent for random drug testing on top of that. And yes, you will be fired if you test positive ...not to mention probably reported to the BON. Marijuana use and nursing are not compatible for individuals who wish to stay licensed and employed.
    Yes...and yet sadly alcohol is somehow "acceptable"...the hypocrisy is sickening in this country...I'd much rather work with a person that uses marijuana now and then. Oh tells us absolutely zero deaths can be cobtributed to marijuana usage yet...hmmmm...lets see...I work cardiac...I'd say 99% of my patients drink and/or smoke cigarettes...ah yes...the grand scheme with Sessions and the rest of the lunatics is now coming to fruition...
