    Yeah! That makes sense! Let's give highly controlled narcotics to a person with a known drug use history. Good suggestion!

        First off i didnt suggest giving him anything. he stated he was giving a prescription for marijuana legally by a doctor for back pain. so i advised if it came up in his medical records and they questioned it he should be honest about it and tell them why he was prescribed it and that he no longer uses the medication.
        Secondly, marijuana is not a narcotic.
        So lets read peoples post completely and comprehend the information correctly! roll eyes

          Hey Meat Head, you recommended he switch to Paramedic. Hence, giving him, or giving him control of highly controlled narcotics.

          Sounds like you yourself need some refresher "Reading for Comprehension" classes.....or perhaps you are defending him because you yourself have had one too many puffs??

            You really need to get that Business Administration degree and don't worry about trying to be hired by any fire department.

            You take drugs now and you couldn't pass a drug screening, a mental exam, and not even the poly!!

              On point of topic, go back to what YOU want to do! Everyone's advice on here is just their opinions! Granted they are mostly truthful, but if you want something bad enough go for it. There are and will still be firefighters on big name city departments that have used marijuana and got hired!!

                your worried about a kid that smoked a little dope being on an ambulance??? haha that thought didnt enter my head because its so ridiculous. you act like this kid has track marks up and down his arms or something. big deal he smoked weed when he was a teenager. maybe you were a little angel whos never broken off the path. you are such a model citizen that we a should all strive to be. just saying if presidents can be elected after dabbling in drugs you are worried about a paramedic hahahaha

Your going to tell me 1/2 on here and if not more of actual fireman out there didnt smoke a little weed in their younger days.

                  I agree with this much of your post. He is not the first, or last kid to get high and decides he likes it! And I could care less that he did. He got a marijauna card and smoked away. He has now realized that this may not have been the best career move.

                  The problem that I, and I believe others have, is that he is trying to blow smoke up our collective arses about the circumstances and conditions of his drug use. There are about 800 threads on this topic and they all end up the same way.

                  Also, when your first post is about drug use, leather helmets, or flashlights...it usually doesn't go well.

                          If you "hurt your back" then wouldn't your parents know?


                          The departments here are just as strict when it come to drug testing.
                          Of course my back pain is not bad enough to not be able to be a firefighter. Getting a Medical Card in cali is easy, just so you dont get busted by cops. Duh! Its CALIFORNIA!! lol. but seriously, i dont smoke anymore so when i get asked that at an interview i will just say the truth, that it was a mistake i made when i was younger, and that i been clean ever since.
