Avoid posting or chatting about smoking marajuana on social media
This one is potentially a lot trickier than simply partying and drinking. Although the prohibition pendulum is swinging the opposite direction in a lot of US states, marijuana is still illegal under US federal law. Therefore when you are engaging in an illegal activity such as smoking a bong, and then publicizing it on social media, you are foolishly handing over rock solid evidence that not only puts you at serious risk of being busted and facing criminal prosecution in the courts, but also puts you within your company’s legal bounds to terminate you (unless, of course, you work for a marijuana depository or High Times magazine!). With regard to employment, you may also potentially be fired even for speculation of criminal or illegal activity.
No matter what State you live in, or what state you like to be in, one of the most common activities that will get you in hot water is smoking cannabis, hash or marijuana. Obviously smoking tobacco is not a crime. However, if you post a Facebook image of yourself smoking, and tag the line “Mary Jane” to it, or another slang term like “Weed” or “420”, you are possibly in for a really unpleasant surprise when you return to work on Monday. Or Tuesday.
People – idiotic people! – have been known to post and boast on social media about how they: stole cars, held up banks, mugged the elderly, sold or purchased illegal substances, as well as a slew of other highly illegal activities. Amazingly, some have even posted videos of them doing these activities. Now they’ve incriminated themselves and others. So don’t be a dope!
