(NYPost)   There's nothing wrong with going to the beach, finding a comfy spot, smoking a little dope, and staring off at the ocean all afternoon. Unless you're a lifeguard   (nypost.com) divider line 10

I very much doubt that an on duty lifeguard being baked would be anything noticeable to the average observer. I've seen lifeguards who are more interested in their cell phones that pose more of a danger than somebody who may suffer an overly paranoid side effect from using pot.

ZOMG! HE GOT HIGH ON THE MOSTLY BORING AND UNEVENTFUL JOB!

It's extremely boring and uneventful, until it isn't.

The lifeguard performance enhancing drug that allows you to be entertained by simply watching people in the ocean should be banned!


It's a lifeguard.  Three hots and a cot are like bonus pay.

As much as I am an advocate of the whole legalizing thing, this was pretty stupid.

I know that being a lifegaurd is boring as dirt.  I know they sit there for hours on end with nothing to do.  But that's not the actual job.  The job is to BE READY when you are needed!  If your reaction time is delayed it could literally mean someone dies.

So, in that respect, smoke all you want.  But do it AFTER work.

Jerk.

I am pretty sure the average observer isn't the concern.  The drowning observer OTOH I would guess would probably prefer the lifeguard not to be high.  YMMV

Lifeguards smoking pot is clearly a dog bites man story.  You should instead go look for the more interesting man bites dog story by finding the two or three lifeguards in the US who aren't smoking pot.

If you're a lifeguard and you smoke weed while on duty, you're an asshole.

mama2tnt: FTA: "Six teenage lifeguards - at least two of whom were on the clock - lit up inside a car parked on Seagirt Boulevard near Beach Ninth Street around 2:20 p.m., police sources said."

Why in the world couldn't they smoke on the beach?
/are there no-smoking beaches?
//obviously I don't get out much....


Dunno about that beach, but there's a 100 foot perimeter here so you gotta swim out beyond the breakers: http://newportbeach.patch.com/groups/politics-and-elections/p/newport - beach-city-council-extends-no-smoking-zone

If you want to smoke pot on the job become a software engineer.
