Quote from SouthernPoint
WOW. What a friend you are. You claim you are "Helping" him. You are not "Helping" him, you are enabling him. You are basically just as guilty as he is. You are finding ways for him to lie, cheat and just be totally dishonest with his employer. I don't care if he works in health care or not.
He does not work in healthcare, nor does he have a problem. I really believe it is the laws against pot smoking that are wrong, not the smoking of pot.
Some people use a martini to have fun on a Friday night, this man, an otherwise law-abiding citizen and very moral, responsible person, has a few puffs of a joint instead. I feel the few puffs
are far less harmful, than the legal martini, or legal prozac, or legal valium, are. Pot has WAyyyy less side effects. No one has overdosed on pot, no one has ever died from pot...but, they can occasionally end up eating cookie dough, or drive too slow,
pretty safe drug.
I have no moral qualms whatsoever about helping him, or even enabling him, to continue to be employed, while enjoying the occasional pot cigarette. Zero moral qualms whatsoever. I do not always use civil laws as my moral compass,
but you are free to do that if that is how you decide right and wrong. It is not always how i make that decision, of right and wrong.
My own inner moral compass guides me, and i have thought about this, and have no qualms whatsoever in supplying my clean, drug-free urine to this person to use. The law is wrong, not my friend's pot-smoking.
If you personally feel smoking pot is morally wrong, that is your choice to feel that way, but, i don't. I myself don't smoke pot, although i did when i was younger. Only reason i don't smoke pot, is, i don't like how it feels now, for me, although it does have fine effect on others, for me, not so much. This guy actually uses MY urine to pass his employment drug tests, trick is, to keep it at correct temperature. (only police urine tests can be witnessed, employee urine tests can not legally be directly watched, so, he can keep small vial of my urine in his crotch to use for his employee drug tests, cuz i do not smoke pot nor take any drugs).
Now, if my pal was an addict, or on hard drugs which were interfering with his life, his relationships, etc, you'd have just cause to accuse me of being "guilty" of something, as i too, would find that kind of addiction a problem my pal would have to address.
but pot? nope, *I* DON'T see using pot occasionally as a moral problem.
but, other drugs, and booze addiction, reeeally scare me, and can do horrific damage to a person, but, pot? Haven't seen it ruining lives. But, other drugs, and booze? and even prescription meds, oh yeah, who hasn't stood witness to seeing someone's life, and the lives of those around them, be ruined?
