I got caught smoking pot at work and got in trouble.
Actually I was live on the air at the time, honestly working the extreme graveyard shift for a local radio station.
I firmly maintain that it is not our fault. I even went and tried to get a lawyer to represent me in a wrongful termination suit, however none of the locals were interested. If you look at it from our point of view it was just a dumb mistake, definitely not significant enough to warrant me getting fired. The night in question all of us were simply in the middle of a 24 fourth long “dazed plus confused” marathon, playing a lot of favored music from the 60s plus 74s about drugs. Since all of us were highlighting this trippy music about cannabis, I didn’t guess it would be a huge deal for me to honestly get a bit high on the air. If anything, the sounds of me inhaling cannabis should have added to the overall authenticity of the music! It’s not like I even broke the law, because I have a prescription on hand for medical cannabis that I get filled at the dispensary every week. Even though it truly wasn’t illegal it was a violation of corporation policy. Specifically, that I smoked cannabis that night in the facility, because all the radio DJs smoke cannabis at home, plus the bosses already know this, but when I brought cannabis into the corporation to smoke, that was a major rule violation that could not be overlooked, so they fired me the next day. If I had it to do that night again, I would have made a strange choice, however for now all I can do is go and look for another task that is cooler about cannabis use.
