    “Coats didn’t use marijuana at work, but pot’s intoxicating chemical, THC, can stay in the system for weeks.”

    I would agree that thc metabolites could be stored in the user’s fat cells for weeks, but the intoxication certainly doesn’t last longer than a few hours.

    The cumulative effects of intoxication of any type is one that I would not want to deal with at work. I wouldn’t even want to deal with the “after glow” that a co-worker might have following a medical treatment.
