Its nobodies business what he does on his time off,if he does it at work whole nuther story.
Do you pride yourself in being a rat?
I still stand by the rule what you do away from the hall is your business,within acceptable parameters obviously.Other than the fact that weed is still technically considered illegal It is less impairing than alcohol would you run to the chief every time you showed up at a brothers house and he was having a beer?
Is Lou a chronic? Dos it affect his work? Maybe he has been RX for an medical condition that he has not told anyone about and only uses it when he is off shift.Too many variables to have a pat answer.
To the initial poster my apology if I was out of line with the rat comment I just noticed it is in scenarios.However if it was areal life deal I would still consider the person a rat.If it does not affect the good order and safety of the dept,shift or individual FF its none of yours/theirs or my business what a guy does when he is not working.
The key here is to gather information/facts. Are there legitimate reasons for the situation (illness, enviroment, side job, etc.)? Once the facts are determined you can evaluate the possible options by weighing the pros and cons of each. Presumably, selecting an option with the most net positive effect.
