It depends on the perspective, Mr. Keith.
Let's address the legalization issue. Currently, people, in good faith, are going to reveal that they are using cannabis. I say “in good faith” because there is a danger in disclosing this information, especially to an employer during an interview for a new job. People are certainly reluctant to disclose this, I can confirm it.
We still have statistics that indicate some use. By legalizing cannabis, don't you think people will be more inclined to talk about their use? It will be like taking aspirin, medication or any other legal product that is no longer controversially illegal.
Rather than passing a very restrictive legislation, could this provide clarification and perhaps even provide more reassurance for employers who can have a much more open discussion with employees and take advantage of the effects and standards to counter the negative effects of all kinds of drugs?
I'll let you respond.
