Who cares what teacher do in their private lives?
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
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.
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.
