On the relative dangers of recreational drugs... I find these results completely unsurprising, but I don't know if that's how most people would react. Over a lifetime of managing hundreds of employees, I've dealt with far more human problems caused by alcohol than with any other drug. I have, quite literally, never had a problem I had to deal with that was caused by marijuana – even though amongst the young people I managed the use of marijuana was very widespread (nearly as widespread as alcohol use, I believe). I've had to deal with a few problems caused by meth, cocaine, or heroin use – but I will also observe that these were all behavioral problems, not problems with the ability to perform at work. Alcohol use, on the other hand, has caused numerous issues that affected both performance and behavior in the workplace. I would think it is obvious to any manager that alcohol is a vastly more impactful and dangerous drug than marijuana.
Funny how the law treats alcohol use so much more benignly than marijuana use...
