I think Scooter is a shill, being paid here to front these particular opinions and make these arguments, and given that he /is/ getting paid, this is why he refuses to leave. Apparently this is becoming a popular way to spread propaganda these days, so I wouldn't put it past the FDA.


 :o


You really think the FDA, DEA, or frankly ANYONE at the federal government gives two shits about a dozen people on a message board?


I stay because I'm entertained. 


I mean, really, people denying that people go to work impaired, that is just nutty stuff that you can't find just anywhere. 
Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

So, you are denying the fact that the US government has been infiltrating social media?

Please say yes.

And that one hit of weed will impair you for at least 10 days.


Some employers are dicks.  Employers in an 'at-will' state can fire you for looking at them the wrong way.  An even-handed employer would look at the test along with the rest of the picture,  If you tested positive, but have been a model employee, productive, timely, etc., you are very likely not going to get fired.


But, employers should have tools available to them to catch the ones who are coming impaired and posing a risk to others.  Do you disagree with that notion?  If so, why?

There you go, assuming facts not in evidence.


Are you seriously arguing that employees never go to work impaired ever?  Really?

Pretty sure you're impaired at work anyway.

Anyway, I wouldn't guess shill. I can respect that to a degree. We've all probably had to shill at one time or another because rent. This is just attention seeking.

to be fair, I'm pretty sure the astroturfing programs they've paid for are primarily targeting twitter and facebook. He's not playing anchortext games with his links, either.

Is this the part where you tell me that the government didn't buy software specifically designed for astroturfing campaigns? Oh, please tell me it's that part.

I don't think he is, either, to be perfectly honest.  Because he'd have been fired for incompetence years ago.  He's convinced more people to be rabidy anti-prohibition than anything else.  I know I went from being on the fence in 2010 (I was in favor of decriminalization but not really legalization) to wanting weed to be completely legalized in 2012.

And I am reasonably certain that I am not alone in that.

Yeah, one of the Discordians they don't give a shit about.

So if this forum is so obscure and insignificant, why are you so worked up about people referring to you by your real name?

Because of creeps like Agrippa and Mr. Bear.
