Some people buy cookies and bring them to work.

Other people make cookies at home and bring them to work.

We have one woman who makes chocolate chip cookie dough at home, brings it to work, then cooks it in the company toaster oven so that not only does the smell permeate the entire office, but the cookies are nice and hot and gooey.

Just wanted to share that with all of you. :)

*ding* Oh, that was the toaster over bell- gotta go!

I once made a tray of hash cakes and took them into work. The ruddy area manager arrived, and the cashier - who knew what they were - offered one to the AM.

He then waited for him to finish it before telling him what was in it.

I got a bit of a b0llocking for it, and was asked not to bring them in again.

Although, he did ask for the recipe. :)

Since then on till I retired, it was straight cakes. Boring, but no rollocking.

there was this guy in my old office that *had* to separate the Skittles by color before he slowly ate them - it was always fun to mix them all up when he left his desk.

Given the name of this forum, I can't help but feel that there is a third line missing.

Lame_Wolf, you were damned lucky. Unless you live in {insert very short list of jurisdictions* here} you could have been hit with a major lawsuit and/or criminal charges.

* One of them is, or used to be, Pushkar. Uhm, do you think you could have waited for the bhang lassi to wear off before embarking on our long complicated discussion of the hotel charges? :(

Well, if it was posted in one of the other forums, there would probably be a line about browser cookies at work.

I would only be done for possession. If anything, the cashier would have been done with supplying.

The cookies sounds a great idea.

One Financial Director I knew would consume a bottle of Scotch in the afternoons. It was never a good idea to meet with him in his office as he'd share it around. Incredibly, he rarely seemed drunk, and seemed very good at his job. I guess that explains why he didn't get fired. Eventually, the drink got the better of him.

Er, no. You would be "done" for drugging someone without their informed consent. In most jurisdictions that counts as criminal assault. Legality or otherwise of the substance itself isn't even an issue.

I am not in the USA. I am in the UK

If it ever went to court, I would be done for possession. The cashier took them (knowing what they were) I did not drug someone without their consent, the cashier did. We have different laws over here.

Plus, I use it for pain control, something the courts over here look at differently.

A few years later when I got busted, I had over 24 ounces and never went to jail. All I got was one year probation (which if you added up the time was about 7-8 hours.) and a small fine (about 700)

The policeman who took my finger prints even apologised for doing so. He said if you offered him a pint or a spliff, he would take the spliff.

I've even had the police to my house and i've had hashish on the table, and they were not bothered about it. They saw it and said they were not round for that.

Yes, I have been lucky, but they generally leave me alone.

When you are in constant pain, and conventional medicine doesn't work (and in my case, made my health worse) then you look for alternative medicine.

I am glad its working for you Lame_Wolf and can't wait until US federal laws catch up with those of Europe - guess we probably have about 500-600 years for that to happen at least... :p
