    Well first off, I'd love to see you show how it helps society in any way, shape, or form. Secondly, what's the basis for calling someone who smokes pot "stupid"?

    Lastly, if you really feel that way, you should homeschool then.

    Now, let's start off by being reasonable. Comparing a murder to smoking a joint is ridiculous. To answer your question, yes and no. I would call the police if I witnessed a murder but not a person jay-walking. Makes sense, right? Also, I don't want to have the police going out on calls to all the pot smokers when there are obviously millions of other things that are more important that they could be doing.

    Sounds like you called the police because the person was a danger to themself or in possible danger by being too stoned/drunk.
    Doesn't sound like you called the cops JUST because you smelled pot though... am I right or am I right?

    Re: A Teacher's Private Life

    What a waste of a 911 operators time. The 420 in progress calls will likely never make it past them and to dispatch - and this is a good thing, the units on patrol need to focus on responding to situations where people or property are threatened in a timely manner, not to some trivial situation where no harm is being done other than some busybody has their nostrils and/or sensibilities offended.

    Heck the 911 call to report such a heinous offense is probably doing more harm than the people smoking the weed, it is petty frivolous and a waste of resources.

    Re: A Teacher's Private Life

    On topic, I do not care what a teacher does with their private time so long as it remains private. If their private life starts to creep into their work life and their performance suffers, or the kids are effected as a result, then there starts to be issue.

    Let them have all the gay midget orgys they want and snort coke off from each other on the weekend, so long as it does not effect their job performance, and remains private. This holds true for virtually any job.

    Things that do not show a good moral character should not be done in public where their students might see.
    Well, after Prop 19...

    I know a guy who got kicked out of a good private school for smoking pot with a teacher... He's now a chef who's been on TV.

    He's owns a place in SB that got featured on Food Network + Travel Channel.

    So, the moral is, if your kid gets booted from private school for smoking pot, don't despair...

    The exception with educators is that if it becomes a "distraction" it is a matter of concern. If it is a significant enough of a distraction for the children and the community, you have problems.

    Which is why I included the qualifier "and remains private" in my post.
