I know, right? My default assumption is that they're all on coke. Same with banking industry folks.

It is, at least in my experience on California, that it's a big no-no to be high on set if you're crew. It's hard enough to get into a good stream of decent paying production crew jobs and then finally into the union that you just save it for time off. Unless you're just a reckless fark or working craft services

The real unsafe working condition is to NOT allow people to do drugs. You're all gonna have a bad time.

Just weed, venlafaxine, and sometimes kratom

So he was terminated due to Covid work restriction.  How is that wrongful termination?   You can sue for anything but really he's suing as they didn't re-hire him.

This will settle out of court and he'll still get a pay day.

I couldn't even guess how many times I worked with coked out grips and electrics.

I don't miss that work in any way whatsoever.  So, so, so very many douchebags who think they're ultra cool.

If that's the case, the show should be much funnier.

I'm not a workplace lawyer, but I don't think that the FDA requires workplaces to label the medications (or drugs) that employees take.

On the most insane animation job I ever worked, I was the only one not coked out of my mind.  It reminded me of the Richard Prior bit about how the most insane shiat seems normal when you are that high.  I was the lead on the animation side and tried to get some help by calling in other freelancers.  One guy I wanted came in, talked to the producers and excused himself for lunch.  He never returned.  I envied him.

I was first exposed to musicians smoking pot on-set with literally my very first gig (which was me at like 14 years old with a bunch of old jazz men).

That said: It's not quite as good when stage managers are doing stuff - Lives tend to depend on their being safe.

Farkers are confusing being the talent with being the crew.


The talent are all on drug cocktails.

When people see my artwork they sometimes ask 'what kind of drugs lead to that?' I answer, 'I'm stone sober.  If I took drugs I'd probably paint puppies with big eyes'

When you have the generic word 'drugs' you damn well know it was just someone smoking a joint on their lunch break. If it was anything substantial they'd have said which drug it was.
