    But we can't know if the doctor took a shot 5 minutes before seeing you either.

    Sure you can by simple behavior. You can easily tell if one has been smoking pot recently. It isn't exactly difficult.

    Alcohol is legal. I'm also not as convinced that long term, regular use of marihuana has zero effect on a person's thought process.

    but pot smoking may affect performance which is why we are discussing it now .

    Then that deficient performance will manifest itself as poor performance and now you have a data point to go off of instead of supposition and assumption.

    Legality is a pretty flimsy argument, frankly. And I didn't claim it doesn't -- but so does alcohol.

    Well you may be ok with waiting until the doc has a giggle fit in the middle of your surgery, but if I would not knowingly take the chance on a pot-smoking doctor.
