Default Have a question...

I have a friend who I have interested in this program after showing them the results my coworkers are getting. And he noticed my face is looking thinner. So he wants to get started but due to chronic migraines he gets prescribed medicinal cannabis, he wants to know if that would effect the program, and I have no idea what to tell him lol

I have a ton of jokes about pot and the munchies, but no relevant information...I cant see that you will find much info, as its not really something being considered on the protocol.

So, other than the munchie factor, I dont really see a reason why it would affect the program, but it will make the pot more potent as he loses. As there is statistics regarding food cravings, this would be my concern, would he be able to stay OP and if not...might be a waste of money...

I doubt it, unless he gets the munchies and eats a bag of Cheetos.

Haha so did I. In the patch we see lots of alcohol and drug abuse...sad part is, most of us would rather work with pot smokers than drinkers as the potheads seem to be safer...biggest risk is them stealing your lunch lol

Now that we diligently and randomly drug test these guys, the hard core users are switching to crack as it will leave no trace in your body after 24 hrs while pot shows up for a good 25-30 days after your last use. Nobody wants to work with a crackhead, so while we have tried to rid our industry of drugs it seems we have made the problem worse. At least we dont have medical marijuana to deal with...yet...but im sure its only a matter of time.

Ya, super scary...24 hrs and zero trace levels on a pee or even blood test. The only remaining test is a hair follicle test, and the hair has to be plucked so these guys are shaving their entire bodies...and I mean entire lol, head to toe. We have enough legislation here that we could avoid hiring someone on med pot, but if the were prescribed after hiring it would be harder to get rid of them...always something lol
