Re: Cannabis use on board
Back to the point.... We all agree that imparement is not acceptable for the skipper underway. What about crew? What about guests? My take is that I don't like that either. If I have a crew or a guest that overindulges alchhol while on my boat, they don't get asked back. One beer in an hour, OK. Two, not OK. Regardless of your own preferences, on my boat, no pot. Just not welcome. I have a good friend that eats pot cookies. We took him and his wife sailing once. He ws so loaded that he was fumbling around. Last time he was invited for a sail.
At anchor or at the dock, a degree of alcohol use is understandable, even a bit excess. More than that, I just don't ask them back. Again, my boat is a no pot zone. Sorry, just the way it is. What you do on your boat is your decision, but on my boat, no pot. An interesting aside, I was at a dock on a friend's boat when another guest went off for a while. He came back after smoking pot and had some random other guy with him to visit for an hour or so. I was not comfortable because the random guy was, well random. The other guest was pretty blotto. So even at dock, it can create problems.
