Insecure? Hardly. Whimpering? "They don't respect me?" Those words never passed my lips. Perhaps you took the comment too personally. I'd remind you that when this thread was started, the point was on how we as trauma practitioners felt about drug use, specifically marijuana use. It was not to discuss the drug testing policies of the Phila. Housing Police, Burholme EMS or the Phila. Fire Dept. When it comes down to it, a large part of my objection to drug use by those in the medical field is based on their (in my view) inability to make sound decisions. Does the fact that using the stuff is illegal play a part in this? Of course. I see nothing wrong with expressing this opinion. By the way, what's your opinion? Unless I've missed it, you haven't posted one.
