    Oh.

    I suppose if they could show a prescription for marijuana, then the employer wouldn't have a case for dismissing them for smoking it.

    but, the do require drug testing.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If only that were the discussion topic.


    What we're discussing here is whether a drug test should be a condition of welfare benefits. It does not help the seniors, disabled and working poor who are addicts if the state funds their addiction. Giving money to addicts actually does them harm.

    I suppose the same thing would hold true if the employee were taking some sort of pain meds that made them woozy.

    Who would have guessed it would be the "Libertarians" calling for jack booted thugs coming into your home to monitor personal conduct!


    The word ironic just seems very inadequate to describe this post.
