    Why is it banned
    Shouldn’t a employer have a say
    Of what substances they gonna test for when hiring
    If I don’t want someone who smokes weed working for me
    I should have that right

    What you do off the clock is none of the company’s business.

    I see this like alcohol if i can have drinks the night before a pre employment drug test and its legal i should be able to do the same with cannabis the night before if its legal where im at.

    just treat it like booze and cigarettes

    well i dont want to hire people who drink

    I’d rather hire the smoker vs the drinker 10 times out of 10.

    I see your point but not sure I 100% agree with this.

    #NTEXTREMES

    Would we say that a teacher that also does porn on the side is cool/ok?

    I have no issue with people drinking or smoking off the clock though. So in THIS instance, it is cool but just don't embarrass your company .

    Like the weed test ban, doing porn and working in certain capacities would be exempt. However, if I wanna sling wood pt at home depot my porn career slinging wood should make no difference.

    Not for you to agree or disagree. Many people use marijuana for self diagnosed mental medical purposes they don’t want to talk about or actually face head on not just for fun.

    Extreme indeed. You know what he meant. Yeah no one is hiring a meth addict or someone who engages in pornography.

    Jemele I appreciate you starting a dialogue but do better

    But if a Home Depot employer has an issue with your porn career, you would get it right?

    I think now, more than any other time in US history, companies simply don't want to ve publicly shamed

    Not unless it impacts my ability to service customers or follow the code of conduct.

    That is ideal and that is how, as an EMPLOYEE, we would like to vkew things but it is possible that if we were on the other side of the table we would vkew it differently.

    I would say there is no right or wrong way about it we just have different goals/expectations depending on our position .

    I GET why companies care so much about what theirbworkers are doing off the clock.

    The questions isn’t if you come to work under any influence. The testing is to see if you’re smoking at all at any point within the past _____ days.
