Smoking Weed at Thanksgiving
Well, this is gonna be a good Thanksgiving, because it’s going to look like everyone at the office is partying at a keg party at work tomorrow night.
And while we’re at it, let’s do a quick rephrase on “party” – it’s not really a party.
“The people,” as I (and most others) use it, are at the office for the sake of working, or rather, a bunch of people are at the office for the sake of working.
The point is that you cannot talk about smoking weed at work and not say, “smoker at work.” For this reason, I will use that to refer to people who are, well, people.
“Smoker at work” is what I would like to call people who are either currently employed, or are working on a company-approved, company-sponsored personal medical marijuana application, and/or have completed a government-registered medical marijuana patient education class.
The reason I say “completed” here is that the term I use for this is not the same term that is currently used for a “medical marijuana patient.” I am describing the people who are currently working at the time, and they are not complete patients.
Now, let me be clear that I am NOT calling anyone a “pot smoker at work,” because there is definitely a difference – a medical marijuana patient is someone who has been prescribed medical marijuana by a doctor or a pharmacist for one of two reasons – either, they have been diagnosed with a disease and have been prescribed medical marijuana to treat it, or they have been diagnosed with a disease and have been prescribed medical marijuana as part of an approved treatment regimen – for the purpose of aiding in their disease treatment.
The people I am calling “pot smokers at work,” are not “pot smokers” at all – they are not patients, they are non-patients. These people have not been prescribed medical marijuana for the purpose of treating a medical condition.
These folks are not “medical marijuana patients,” they are “pot smokers” at work.
And it is also important to remember that the people who are currently in the process of completing a marijuana “patient education” class, are not the same people I am talking
