I have no idea what this would prove. With hard drugs, you can generally tell users just by appearance and behavior. And who cares if people are pot smokers. Many pot smokers hold down good jobs and are upstanding citizens. Where I live, there are a great many people who smoke pot, I know many, friends, neighbors, family. They are all gainfully employed successful people. If they lost their jobs and needed assistance, their drug use would have nothing to do with it. And people for whom drug use has become a problem and it is causing them to be unemployed, they need treatment and counseling, not hate.
