Do You Go to Work High?

Regardless of how you answer, I promise you I won’t tell your supervisor…if you promise you won’t tell mine. Because going to work after a toke of cannabis, for me at least, is akin to taking a few slurps of java in the morning. It brings about a certain amount of clarity and energy to the day as well as lessen some of the anxiety working in my field often elicits.

This is not to imply, however, that everyone should be getting high before work. Would you trust your doctor if you knew they just took some dabs before operating on your prolapsed rectum? Or would you work with a lawyer who was taking bong rips in their office prior to representing you in a case that could determine your freedom? You might have some hesitations, I’m sure.

I reached out to folks on Facebook and my own friends to see who gets high before (or during) work and most importantly, why. The answers, while not surprising, were informative. Feel free to provide your own answers in the comment sections, or email us directly to be featured in this article:

How often do you go to work high?

I’m almost always high when I get here so pretty much daily

When you do go to work high, how do you feel at work? Do you feel your work performance is affected positively or negatively?

It’s more positive. I’m more of an introvert most of the time and when I smoke I’m able to interact with customers more naturally.

How do you manage your work responsibilities when you’re high? Give us an example of a typical workday.

A typical day is I come in (walk) and change into my uniform. I clock in and after that it’s just a routine of dealing with customers, washing counters and changing coffee. I sweep and mop when need to, check on the bathroom every hour and when in-between customers and cleaning I go out for a smoke break (cigs sometimes later in the night weed)
