This just struck me as humorous…
U.S. Dept. of Labor sets dates for the 4th annual Drug Free Work Week
The U.S. Department of Labor today encouraged public and private community organizations to participate in the 4th annual Drug-Free Work Week, which will occur Oct. 19 to 25.
So remember, kids, to mark your calendars and don’t go to work stoned that week.
Of course, in reality, I’m in favor of a drug-free workplace, in that people shouldn’t be impaired by drugs (including alcohol) when working (on the other hand, I’m also in favor of people working, as appropriate, when enhanced by drugs â€” such as jazz musicians).
Also, of course, in reality, the drug-free workplace programs aren’t really about a drug-free workplace. They’re about penalizing people who use certain drugs at any time, even if that use has no connection to work.
