Our minds are clear from Monday to Friday, most of us have enough common sense not to report to work stoned, it's illegal to drive under the influence anyway, and we are more social to our work colleagues than the scatterbrains who popped disco buiscits all weekend. I've seen a few people flip out in the workplace, done it myself on occasion, and it ain't pretty. It's these people that need to be removed, not the smoker who chooses to earn a legitimate income, while enjoying one of the finer things in life! ( in their own time ofcourse:-))
