Forgot where I read, either today or yesterday, something like a link between cannabis and schizophrenia and only 1 in 7 adults use. Tried google and there were lots of hits but not the one I remember.
So, apparently some part of the 1 in 7 will become schizophrenic or exacerbate their schizophrenia which would seem to fit the observed phenomena in the States where legalized.

Dope makes dumb people even more stupid - CADpro
Managing a fab shop for many years, there has been quite a few dopers in the ranks. I once had to fire an entire install crew who thought meth would make em work faster & longer. This wasn't the case when after 2-days on the job the GC called to tell me my crew were all tweeking most spinning in circles accomplishing nothing.
Then there was a pot head in my shop that forgot to move his arm in the press break and almost squished his arm off. Let's not forget about bong hit Bobby, who shortly after returning from lunch break dope-toke ran his hand thru the table saw losing a few fingers.
So YES, employers need to screen new hires & current employees for dope. This greatly reduces the liability for the company. If dope is against the law, then you shouldn't be doing it or being under the influence of or in possession of dope.
If you chose to do dope, it shows you to be careless and have no regards for the laws in society. Basically saying you will do dope no matter what anyone says or laws put in place. It's all about you and your dope. F#k everything else and everybody.

When medical use marijuana is legalized federally, does anyone want to take bets on the amount stress and depression disorders goes up?
Big Business wants us to use petrochemicals and fossil fuels. They have little interest in NATURAL solutions.humansarefree.com...

IMO Marijuana is one of the biggest threats to our country's economic recovery . Just not in the way that statement implies . During the drug screening process the least harmful drug is the one most often detected because it can stay in your system up to 30 days .
That leads to millions of jobseekers being disqualified almost immediately. It also causes workers who smoked a joint three weeks ago then were tested to lose their job.
In Trumps economy we have more jobs than people seeking of them. Legalization or some form of minimization by law or regulation forbiding insurance companies to disqualify people for it. Would put all those people back in the workforce.
The way I look at it legalization especially now is now a benefit to the country not a detriment .
