chopterlol Posted February 2, 2022 Report Share Posted February 2, 2022 Do you think the aviation industry will ever get a more mature and fact based opinion towards cannabis? Since legalization in 2018, MANY more operators require pre-employment testing than they did pre-legalization. There is a strict no use/zero tolerance approach. However alcohol abuse is wildly accepted in our industry, promoted and celebrated. Yet cannabis use 2-3 weeks before your shift is unallowable and stigmatized. (discrimination) During legalization one of the biggest calls for zero tolerance was the police, and it was tied to the fact they carry loaded weapons and have authorization to use them. The Calgary police has since changed their minds. https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/off-duty-cannabis-prohibition-for-calgary-police-officers-lifted "Other police forces at that time considered banning cannabis use within 28 days of a shift, eyeing the fact traces of its active ingredient THC remain in the body long after consumption. Critics, including leaders of police associations, called that rule de facto prohibition and ridiculous, noting that THC presence in the body often doesn’t denote impairment." Transport Canada is completely out of touch with reality, do only 80+ yr boomers who work there? Furthermore there is medical users of Cannabis, Dr. prescribed medication. If covid has taught us anything its that you have to listen to the doctors or you are a nazi! Responsible cannabis use does not imply you are unfit for duty. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
