We all know what happens on April 20th or 4/20, it’s a day that marijuana advocates love to promote the flower that brings them so much joy. This is perfectly legal in the state of Colorado, in fact, if you want to know more about where you can enjoy cannabis legally you can see that information by clicking here. But I have seen people lose jobs and really get in trouble when they were high so if you choose to celebrate 4/20 go for it, but make sure you’re not making a huge mistake that will cost you for years to come.

Because marijuana is legal in Colorado to most of us it’s no big deal. But it can still get you into big trouble such as driving while you’re high. That can get you in just as much trouble as drinking and driving. Driving impaired no matter what the intoxicant is will get you in serious trouble with the law and cost you a lot of money. Fingers crossed you don’t injure someone while behind the wheel.

I’ve seen Grown Adults Lose Their Job Over Being High

It’s a memory I will always remember. My dad was a restaurant manager growing up so often while out and about we would stop into his restaurant. One day his dishwasher decided to smoke marijuana in his car and came in reeking like it. And we walked in seconds behind him. Yeah, my dad has to let an employee go while he was on his day off because the employee was coming to work high. Don’t be that guy.

It’s Really Obvious When You’re High

When you’re going 10+ miles under the speed limit it’s pretty easy to see that you’re not sober. Just please remember to be safe. If you choose to enjoy your April 20th, do so from your own couch with a bag of Munchies. Don’t make a big mistake that could put your future at risk.
