Time For A Career Change? These Companies Allow Employees To Use Marijuana At Work
There are some companies who are openly allowing their employees and in some cases encouraging their employees to get high on the clock.
It is the dream of many marijuana users to be able to get high at work. Some people already do. So it is others dreams of being able to do it without having to find a back alley where you won’t be seen, and having to douse yourself in cologne or perfume before you come back so your boss or peers won’t smell it on you.
Well if you are open to a career change, and possibly moving to a different state, then you are in luck. There are some companies who are openly allowing their employees and in some cases encouraging their employees to get high on the clock. Which companies are these you are probably wondering. Well, let me give you three examples.
Flowhub is a software company that develops software management systems for legal cannabis grows to better regulate and keep track of their inventory. Kyle Sherman, co-founder of the company was quoted as saying, “The workplace has been weed-friendly since day one” and that “our philosophy is to get stuff done, and if it helps gets stuff done, then we don’t care if they consume at work.” Kind of neat to hear a cannabis user talk about productivity in relation to marijuana, consider the stigma is that cannabis users get high and lazy all the time.
The Denver-based High There is a Tinder-style dating app for people who smoke weed. Ever wonder how many hotties are out there smoking weed? Like other dating apps, users create profiles and swipe through potential matches nearby. But High There is optimized to match people based on their preferences for consuming marijuana. If a user prefers vaping over smoking, for example, the app is likely to match them with others nearby who also vape. Another key aspect is specifying your energy level when you’re high; that way, low-energy couch potatoes won’t be paired with energetic explorers.
High There co-founder Darren Roberts reports that employees are not constantly stoned and typically are only using the pot later in the day or for brainstorming sessions.
MassRoots is another social media app which is located literally across the street from High There! MassRoots is not a dating app like High There! Instead, it is an app-based social network for cannabis users, billing itself as the Instagram for cannabis users. MassRoots co-founder Isaac Dietrich famously denotes he was high when we came up with the idea, and so promotes use while at work for creativity.
So while we aren’t suggesting you go ahead and assume your boss will now be good with you getting high on the job, it might be worthwhile thinking about a potential career change if you enjoy using pot throughout the day. Moving to Colorado never looked so good.
