If I ever have to hire anyone again...........NO potheads and NO long hair. My job. My money. My conditions.

Accept it or keep on truckin' down the road. Sounds fair to me....my company and all.

Potheads I understand.

From my understanding, this long hair was a pretty good carpenter in his day.

The next time I hire someone they will need to like golf. Something about a guy who likes golf. To me it tells a lot about them.

That was random. You must have been thinking of employees on grass.

True.

As not to offend,
This religious discussion is over.

I was thinking of employees and what they do for recreation. If a guy is a golfer chances are he's not a homie or a crack smoker.

Hunting and fishing for me. CT is my only real hobby though. I pretty much just work.

Re: Medical Marijuana Laws And Employment


The golf course is probably not the worst place to rub shoulders, so to speak. Be overly friendly, perhaps pass out a business card or 2 . Have your logo'ed vehicle in the parking lot.

Golf will really do wonders for your work game.

Re: Medical Marijuana Laws And Employment


Well, in this state it's legal and we have shops popping up like mushrooms. I have heard of a case where an employer got into hot water for firing a guy that tested positive for pot. Problem is, since it's legal they can no longer consider it a condition of employment. They had to hire the guy back and God knows what.

Wonder what's gonna happen out there when we get a more conservative administration, who chooses to enforce Federal law? It's only legal as state law right now.

That's a good point, no one really knows. I'd sure hate to invest in a business with that looming over my head. A lot of permits haven't been granted yet though, seems a lot of them simply expected to open up the doors and haven't followed through with the permitting process. I know...hard to believe.
