marijuana, paleo, and training

I wasn't quiet sure where to out this so I put it here hopefully this doesn't cause a stir.

So my question is if you smoke marijuana how detrimental is it to your workouts? I know that constant use cause bronchitis and such but I wasn't wondering more short term, like when it comes to workouts.
Does smoking do anything to your diet?

Help anyone?

You do realize that this is a public forum and any potential future employers will be able to pull up your posts if they wanted to, right?

Off topic: But do they actually do that? I admitted to using marijuana before enlisting in the Marine Corps. I just got a waiver, but do employers actually scour the interweb to find out what potential employees have posted?

I haven't read this, but it hasn't been locked, so I'd imagine it's WFS. http://board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=60636

It should/may answer your questions?

Depends on the employer. More savvy employers are likely to at least Google you and see what comes up.

Let's assume this was a case where someone had a medical card and it was legally being dispensed instead of why on earth would someone post this.

Why would you think it would enhance your performance. Just like going out and having a few beers once in a while may not have significant long term effects. However in the short term it can cause poor food choices, decreased motor skills, and just pure laziness.

He didn't ask for your (or anyone's) opinion regarding background checks.

Get over yourselves.
