Apologies if this has been discussed and I missed it.  I may have been busy
reading 'The Martian.'


Most of us have in our policies and codes of conduct something about not
using 'alcohol and other illegal substances.'  As we all know, on July 1
marijuana no longer fits that second category.  Yes, the law as written
prohibits lighting up in public, but we need to consider.


-A 21 year old hanging out in/near the teen area with a joint tucked behind
each ear.  Anybody comfortable with that?

-Anyone vaping 10 feet from your exits/entrances could be consuming massive
amounts of THC.

-That plate of brownies on the desk of your lead cataloger.  or the bong a
volunteer brought in to show a friend.


My plan is to go through my policy manual and add 'and other intoxicants'
anywhere we talk about alcohol, and to flat out ban marijuana (and other THC
products) and any tool used to consume it from the library grounds.


What's your plan/language?
