A friend recently passed along a pretty sweet job she thought I might be interested in. Didn’t even apply after finding out the company drug tests everyone they’re interested in interviewing BEFORE the interview. Not even a pee test but a hair follicle test. No thanks. I smoke every day (not during work hours) as well as experiment with other psychedelics when the opportunity presents itself. Guess what though? I am also organized, creative, flexible, communicative, and pretty funny in the workplace. Your loss if you’re going to immediately reject me as a candidate without even meeting me first!
When friends at work find out I smoke, they’re usually in disbelief. Wayyyy too many people have this very specific stereotypical image of cannabis enthusiasts (potheads, if you will) in their mind’s eye.
