195. Good post. This is a good question to ask. If the pot is honestly needed for
a medical condition (for instance, glaucoma) then that's a different thing. If it's just being used recreationally, it boils down to, how badly do you want the job? If pot is more important than the job, then okay.

The thing is, we don't get to make up a new reality just because we don't like the current one.

An alcoholic who has just lost his license because of driving drunk can rant and rave all he wants but you know, the laws are the laws and if he wants his driver's license, he needs to not drive drunk, no matter how badly he would like to.

If you don't like the laws, work to change them. Until then, your choice is to either have the job and not have the pot, or have the pot and not have the job. You pick. Unless you are the one in a million who actually finds a way around the drug testing.
