| Legalized Marijuana in California and The Firefighter Candidate
by Dean Guccione on January 14, 2017. In this video, Chief Dean Guccione discusses Proposition 64, in California, where marijuana was legalized for recreational use on November 8th, 2016. Chief Guccione talks about the illusion firefighter candidates may have regarding recreational marijuana use and their ability to pass their background investigation.
But, the law actually will not go into effect until January, 2018. The State of California will need this year to figure out how pot will be regulated, sold, and used.
Don't be surprised if Fire Departments throughout California DO NOT change their policies regarding the use of pot for recruit and full-time firefighters. We will see what happens! Enjoy!
