    Which of the following best describes marijuana policy at your shop?

    _____ OK anytime working or not working, OK anywhere on the premises

    _____ OK anytime working or not working, but not when customers are present

    _____ OK during work only when on break

    _____ OK during work only when on break, but have to go off premises

    _____ Not OK anytime during the work day, OK any other time

    _____ Not OK anytime during the work day, not OK before work

    _____ Not OK anytime working or not working – never, period

    If someone has a medical marijuana card, how does that affect the policy?

    Comments welcome.

    Not ok during work, I can’t control after or before.  I guess I could do drug testing.   But, during work, why not have a bar set up also?

     We are professionals, right?

    Your business, safety and a whole lot of other problems could stem from marijuana in the work place!

    Tom, I live in Colorado. Weed is legal here, like it or not, and far be it for me to get involved. We do have a policy of drug testing if an accident happens and would consider the results of that test, with the help of an
    employment specialist. I think, though, that the first thing I would consider for a positive test would be to
    require a treatment protocol. People are not perfect.  Rob

    Rob:

    I understand your POV, however if a buzzed tech left a wheel loose and a customer subsequently died as a result, “People are not perfect.” may not quite cut it. 
    FWIW, I lean towards the legalization of pretty much all drugs as the war on drugs is an abject failure. But, anyone who partakes has no business ever working with power tools, vehicles or heavy equipment. If they want to get high, let them do some menial tasks where they can’t hurt others.
