Straw hats, lace-up boots and RYO smokes are the trappings of my religious beliefs; you can't discriminate against me for those reasons.

However can the feds pick and choose to enforce one law and not the other like "illegal" aliens as an example? Or how they have let California smoke and sell pot for years? How is that fair?

Here's how it is fair: (from the White House of President Barack Obama)
Marijuana is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). As a Schedule I drug, marijuana is classified under the following criteria:

A. The drug has a high potential for abuse.
B. The drug has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States
C. There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug under medical supervision.

Hey meade, if they can test my precious bodily fluids, can I test their brains? You know, to see if they have any? Can I test THEIR
bodily fluids? The problem with these tests is the length of time the banned substances remain in one's system. It IS an invasion of privacy. What else might they ban? Nicotine? Caffeine? What if I eat a poppyseed bagel? What's next? Genetic testing?

And HEY! If all these employers are testing everyones' piss, maybe they could test for other things while they are at it? Like cancer.
They should at least do that, after all they don't pay shit for wages.

Home Depot or any other legal business would be irrationally accepting liability by knowingly hiring anyone involved in criminal activity of any kind.

All that aside, why should an employer be prohibited from discriminating against hiring people who use intoxicants, legal or not, of any kind?

Also, what does your friend being "Caucasian" have to do with anything?


You cant figure that out for yourself ?

Because it's ok to discriminate against him if he's brown, silly.


Apparently true in Gorcon and your world.


I would not say OK but that is the truth of what happens. Of course leftys always try to spin away from the point at hand. Classic move guys, you are part of the greater good. Pat yourselves and rub your belly's while saying Good boy Good boy
