    sometimes pot possession is just a misdemeanor.

    If you get caught doing it in your private life, chances are, you deserve what you get coming to you professionally.

    Re: A Teacher's Private Life

    In most professional jobs, having a good moral character is a requirement to maintain that license. The reason for this is that often the person in this profession can wield a lot of power in their domain and is seen as an expert in the subject. I see no reason why teachers should not fall into this type of professional qualification.

    Ultimately this means that the teacher should be following the laws and maintain a standard of integrity. Since integrity is not on the poll, the only thing that I would vote against would be breaking the law. If weed were legal, I would not care. If the teacher advocated for weed being legal, I would not care.

    If it was none of our business when the sitting POTUS got a hummer from his intern, then why should it be any of our business what anyone does in their private life. If a teacher violates the law, report them to the police..not their principal.

    I've done it before. I went up to someone's house for something, you could smell pot smoke wafting from every window and the person who answered the door was clearly stoned out of their mind, they could hardly put two words together. I concluded my business, went back to the car and called the police. Whatever happened from there, I have no idea.

    Well forgive me for not wanting to uphold the law and prevent illegal substances from being abused. Call me a snitch, but at the end of the day it's the pot smokers butt that will be jobless and in jail. Don't want to go to jail? Don't break the law. Pot is illegal, and I think it's sad that law enforcement doesn't enforce it enough.
