Weed, or marijuana, is so commonly used in lower level positions in a company, not to mention throughout all levels of a business, that is by its cultural saturation relatively innocuous. It seems innocuous, but it isn’t. The weed game at work is far more destructive because it is looked upon as so commonplace and as if it cannot really hurt anyone.
It is detrimental because it is seen as so benign.
The advertising agencies of today understand the concept of familiarity. If something is commonplace, it is seen as everyday and ordinary. If it is everywhere, then many people will talk about it, it will become innocuous, and everyone will buy it because everyone else is buying it, and for no other reason.
Finally, the prevalence of abusing weed in the workplace can influence otherwise competent employees to try it out, too, since nobody is really getting in trouble over the matter.
All of these facets add up to a really big problem for you, since your workforce, the lifeblood of your company, is being compromised by their own actions. This compromises your company itself. This compromises you.

Marijuana abuse by employees is highly popular, and the more creative the employee the more likely they are to abuse as part of their job, since they consider it to be freeing of their minds. Of course, that is not the case, but the general belief that it is certainly does not help anyone. Call CMM Technology to order your drug test equipment today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
