    The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment released a study

    that lists the occupations in which marijuana use is the most common.

    In a group of 10,169 adults in the state, 14.6% self-reported current marijuana use.

    On the top of that list? Not surprising for anyone who has worked in these industries:

    food services took the number one space with 30.1% prevalence of current marijuana use,

    followed by artists at number two with 28.3%.

    The study looked at the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System data from 2014 and 2015.

    It was authored by Roberta Smith, Katelyn E. Hall, Paul Etkind, Mike Van Dyke

    and is the first study of its kind to use BRFSS data to describe self-reported marijuana use in occupations.

    Here’s the percentage of marijuana users among Colorado eligible adults, ranked by industry:

    Accommodation and Food Services – 30.1%
    Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation – 28.3%
    Other Services (except Public Administration) – 20.9%
    Construction – 19.7%
    Real Estate, Rent, Lease – 19.6%
    Retail Trade – 18.9%
    Administration, Support, Waste Management, and Remediation Services – 18.8%
    Information – 18.2%
    Manufacturing – 16.3%
    Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing/Hunting – 14.4%
    Professional, Scientific, Technical Services – 14%
    Finance and Insurance – 13.5%
    Management of Companies and Enterprises – 13.1%
    Wholesale Trade – 11.4%
    Transport and Warehousing – 10.2%
    Health Care and Social Assistance – 7.4%
    Education – 5.8%
    Public Administration – 5.8%
    Utilities – 5.8%
    Mining, Oil and Gas – 5.2%

    The study also broke down the use by race, age and sex. Out of 10,169:

    5,138 were male
    5,031 were female
    625 were ages 18-25
    1,251 were ages 26-34
    8,187 were older than 35
    7,823 were white
    259 were black
    1,416 were multiracial
    270 were Hispanic

    Skankhunt42 is targeting the girls of South Park Elementary on the school's message boards and Kyle and all the girls believe Eric Cartman is the bully due to his previous bigoted behavior.

    Anyone that holds a CDL and still smokes is downright stupid. If a car runs a red light and smashes into a semi, the first thing to happen is D.O.T sends the truck driver in for a drug test. The truck driver drops dirty and automatically the accident now becomes the truck drivers fault, no exceptions, in court they would be considered under the influence.

    The trucking company gets sued and the truck driver gets sued, real quick way to lose everything you have. If there's a fatality, truck driver is going to prison.

    Not fair by any means, but that's the way it is when you have a CDL.

    Also, truck drivers have to take randoms, it's a requirement by the FMCSA. Get pulled over for a simple roadside inspection and the D.O.T officer or state cop wants you to take a drug/alcohol test, you absolutely have to. When you get a CDL you agree to implied consent.

    Drop dirty and your CDL gets yanked from you and you have to do drug counseling anywhere from 1 year up to 5 years with more randoms if you want your CDL back. Won't matter anyways though, because the dirty drop goes on your record forever and no trucking company will ever hire you again, your truck driving career is finished.
