Changed your mind about marijuana?
Social Acceptability Will Influence Retail Sales
I'm not sure how my family may react to know I smoke pot, or my coworkers. It definitely may cause some issues in the professional world where many companies discriminate against marijuana users during the hiring process. Personally, I have been asked on 3 separate HR surveys after applying to jobs if I smoke marijuana and if I would be willing to submit to a urine sample test.
I hope marijuana gains the same social acceptability as alcohol. Consume with caution. Don't drive, don't do it at work, be responsible. All of this said, I would probably one day cautiously buy retail pot.
After all, it would be completely legal and I am a responsible adult. I would take the same caution as I do when purchasing rolling papers and pipes, bongs, etc. Although there is nothing wrong with purchasing these items, it is not something I would want the world to judge me for. For some reason, alcohol from a liquor or beer store is not a big deal. I often see coworkers. I hope we can be mature enough to leave pot as a free decision for those who are responsible.
