But it's going to be a long process to get society to open their minds and see this logically... Prop 64 is a big step in the right direction but it doesn't do anyone any good to expect the rest of the dominoes to fall right away.
The issue I have with it is the dependency that come with ANY drug or booze.
I have had employees that I saw a drop in effiency in performance reviews and did not really understand until the company came out with a policy on drugs. Some of my best subordinate managers and supervisors turned themselves in because they had become so bad they had no life outside work.
After rehab they once again became outstanding employees. In fact even better in one case.
So I frankly do not believe that it is a victim less issue. While I have had a limited view of it the doctors and nurses I have known tell me much the same thing.
I personally do not care if someone wants to drink or use as long as I, my friends or family are not directly affected.
But again I just do not understand the need.
