Seattle’s pot store opens: It’s time to ‘free the weed’
Matt Kreamer; The Seattle Times; July 8, 2014
One store owner in the state had the following to say about the high sales overall:
“I think we’ll be very successful because of our zero tolerance policy when it comes to employee drug use. Hair, blood, and urine can be tested at any time. And we have the right to demand a polygraph at any time we suspect drug use during their employment here. Even when they’re not working, I want clear and focused individuals with moral integrity.
“Because our pre-screening process is so thorough, I don’t think we’ll even need to use those measures. They’re simply redundancy steps. We probably won’t even need them. I ask subtle questions, like ‘Do you have a favorite Beatles song?’ or ‘Have you ever worn a tie-dye shirt?’
“I’m not paranoid, but I just can’t have people who smoke pot around the product and the people who buy it. I need people with as much contempt for marijuana users as me. I don’t want workers who are slow and bad at math–not to mention dirty. I cannot have people looking at our merchandise and who are thinking, ‘I want to smoke a 420 with that’.”
Even the creator of the polemic linked below commented, “Jesus Christ! That guy’s pretty uptight.”
That’s heavy, man.
