Drug testing ...

With the new (legal) availability of different types of drugs has come a boom market in various types of testing devices for roadside assessing of impairment.

 

One has been found to test positive for opiates ... if you have eaten a poppy seed muffin ...

Re: Drug testing ...

I work in the cleared community.  I've had conversations with others in the cleared community and we agree and LAFF at the potheads who think they have gained ground with the legalization of these drugs.  If there is anywhere where clear, uninhibited thinking and reactions are needed is in this area.  We doubt, but there is always a chance so I won't say never, that even if the US passes a federal law allowing these drugs would it ever get into this community. 

 

I don't use them. I don't need them. I think they are a crutch for many. Yes, there is a very small percentage of people that can benefit from the use of these drugs but it's not at the rate that we are seeing the interest in accessing it.

I recall a provincial computer education meeting where we were on a non-smoking
(insurance rules) campus, and our host was trying to list the places that attendees
*could* go to smoke. Finally one person at the meeting asked if it applied to
anyone: *did* anyone at the meeting smoke. Nobody did. (About 50 attendees
present.) There were some ex-smokers, and this was back in the days when people
were concerned about small particulates causing head crashes on hard drives, so
some assumed that was why the exes had quit. No, said one of the ex-smokers. At
this level you just can't have *anything* messing with your head ...

Re: Drug testing ...

Dear flyslinger,
How many alcoholics do you know? I agree that the archetypal “pothead” Is not your pot smoking Carl Sagan but to say with one blanket statement that a vice that lingers in the system longer than an another makes someone unfit is uneducated. I’d rather someone who smoked a joint 2 weeks ago than someone drunk last night in charge of my delicate information or my heart surgery for that matter.
