You need to get a refund on that info packet you bought about me, it's got a lot of errors. 

I'll give you that I was just looking at a generic medical license, if they don't ask the right questions for your particular flavor then so be it. But EVERY professional license I've ever seen has a clause about Moral Turpitude, or Moral standing of some kind. I see that as an odd thing with you abstaining for your test, but going right back to the activity that they are testing for for your prescriptions/medical insurance/assistance program (pick the appropriate one, I think you've mentioned a couple of groups you have to plan for testing).   I do find it relevant as you were complaining in the other thread that the individuals earlier illegal activity should prevent him from having a license until he gets through all the proper adjudication of his circumstance.   And yet you have a professional license and have to plan around testing intervals so you don't get caught in your illegal activities. So the lawyer in question is working through the proper channels and is prevented from getting a license, and you hold a license even though you appear to be gaming the system and avoiding accountability for your actions (however justified they may be). 

For someone so concerned about illegal immigration, your flouting of drug laws and restrictions is incongruous. 
 
Looks like you've been at sea too long, Ahab.  While you may be judge, jury and executioner while at sea, we do have different standards on shore.  Your understanding and interpretation of Moral Turpitude is way out of line with reality.  This sat long enough for you to double check your understanding of this concept so I guess that it falls on to me to bring you up to reality, if that is possible.

Here is a short list of what Moral Turpitude is not :

People also ask

 What crimes are not crimes of moral turpitude?


For someone so concerned about illegal immigration, your flouting of drug laws and restrictions is incongruous. 

 
A) I do not openly indulge nor flout it. 

B)  If anything, I would consider it civil disobedience, should I be flouting it publicly.  Which I do not.

C) If you want to be Captain and consider entering the country illegally to be on equal footing with the personal use of cannibus, then I cannot discuss this on these terms.  We see it differently.  Much differently as you consider using cannibus to be a crime of moral turpitude based upon your argument above.  Based upon your own admission of using it, you have admitted committing a crime of moral turpitude.  You need to walk off of your own plank.  As you take your last step, think about how using cannibus is worse than entering the country illegally, based upon the argument you have presented above.

Obviously, I am your white whale.  Your pursuit of me over my posts trying to prove me wrong about everything I say is proof enough   I have rented space in your head for free.

Ahoy !! Thar you blow !

And as you state, you respected your contractual obligations, which I totally respect. In my case, I have adjusted my life to stay away from any random testing scenario. People can say anything they want about cannibus, but it is still illegal under federal law and one strike you are out for all kind's things such as a livelihood, permanently. Not worth the risk. I can abstain long enough to pass a scheduled test. If you can't, then maybe you do have a problem with it. But that is a separate issue, right ? No, not really because addiction is not a valid pretense for a test, as in it's for your own good in the end ...

I've been lied to by the government about it since the 50's looking back and been aware of the lies since the 60's. And have watched how the lies have been implemented purely for oppression ever since then. The same tactics are widely used for other political purposes as well.

As an aside, I am old enough to have taken LSD when it was still legal. The story of that drug and the government all by itself should prevent anyone from ever trusting the .gov about anything, ever.

I never claimed to be a long term smoker. I've smoked in the past, but quit long ago. The consequences were never worth it to my circumstances in the last several decades. I did say it would be foolish to out yourself on a public forum, but YMMV.  I've recently dabbled in the recreational stuff available here, but only since I don't have contractual obligations that preclude it and corporate masters to answer to. 

So, you have an Rx?  And given that you've had a license for longer than medical use has been allowed (and you've said that you have been smoking for 40+ years),  How did you answer the question regarding your use of illegal use of controlled substances on the physicians license application?

Personally, I don't really care what you do. But since you feel it's important to uphold the legitimacy of professional licenses and all.. It does seem hypocritical to argue over red tape in one circumstance, but gloss over falsifying an application in another.
