142 is right. Many companies and local, state, and federal employees are likely tested and cannot have THC in their systems. And they are monitored.
Semi-OT. Perhaps any of those employees can enlighten me on how the feds view medicinal and recreational MJ use in states that allow it. I think it's probably a safe bet saying you can't have any MJ in your system since it is not legal from a federal stand point. It does not matter if you have cancer.
@Buddy Blank. I moderated four years here at HW and was completely on board with MJ use not being an allowed topic. It sure made moderating easier. It may be tough at times for the moderators here in the prostate cancer forum to keep up without this discussion popping up. I see why the site administrator also wanted to make no announcement posts about
it. But MJ use can be a useful tool for many cancer patients so it is relevant discussion. I know many oncologists ok with medicinal use. The site allows the opiates and many other pain killing drugs to be discussed that would rank very high on the mind altering lists the DEA has. After all we are a cancer website. Still I believe that the moderators will do a great job of deflecting poor judgement. The rule is simple ~ it must be discussed on topic to as it relates to cancer. I also know the site owner very well and he struggled with this for years. I believe the discussion and behavior will be on a short leash. And if it lowers the value of the website that he is likely to reverse the decision first.
