For all we know she took drugs one night on one night out-and even thats hearsay.
Its not like shes rocking up to work with a needle hanging out of her arm. Of course illegal drugs are not good for anyone, but there is also a level of drug taking (which im going to bravely say) is relatively harmless to anyone but yourself.
Taking something once on a weekend here and there is not going to affect her job. Its no ones business and the busy body going to dob her in should be ashamed for pandering to slanderous gossip! For all we know the poor woman has never touched a drug in her life, and now theres a whole thread about it! Lol

When I replied to this thread earlier I assumed the illegal drug taking was hearsay and without proof that's all it is. Nasty gossip.
If she is ACTUALLY taking illegal drugs, then no. I would not be ok with that at all. I am 100% not ok with illegal drug use, whatsoever.
In saying that I still stand by my last post where I think if she really was out of control, it would show at work and she wouldn't be long in the position anyway. No need for an outsider to gossip and make up stories. People need to mind their own business.

And what do you mean by "supposedly sober"? She's clearly not drug affected when she's turning up to work or she wouldn't have a job. It's obvious when someone is drug affected, I've worked with people who have rocked up to work drug affected. If she had a couple of lines on a Friday night, rest assured she's completely sober by Saturday. It's about how much one takes, absolutely. But I'd be hoping that if there's any sign whatsoever that she's drug affected, as with anyone in a position of care, that she's booted out the door. I don't want my kids taught by someone who's still buzzing from the weekend. I'm lax in my attitude towards drugs, yes, but not that lax.

My best friend was a transplant surgeon and prior to that was clean in respect to drugs. During her stint she was amazed at the numbers of surgeons and other medical professionals that would abuse prescription and illegal drugs in order to stay awake for their 12-24hr shifts.
I can list at least 8-10 doctors I went to uni with who frequently dabble in substances. Never mind the ones I don't know. Doesnt mean they are fabulous doctors on the clock. Just means their private life is theirs.
I'm not condoning their behaviour just saying it's a fact.

You just have to read BH to know that ;-)
But cocaine to me is as bad as alcohol. I wouldn't want my kids around drunk people either I give you that.
I'm just saying that people that takes recreational drugs are as bad as people drinking recreational wine.
They're not junkies

I am also of the opinion people should mind their own business. Unless you are effecting/harming other people, what you do in your private life is your own business. God if we were privy to everyone's private lives I do believe a lot of you would get a big shock.
Besides the fact that this is all just hearsay, which could potentially cost this woman her career. Showing the principal a nude picture of her that some guy couldn't keep to himself is just awful in my opinion.

Agree with most that unless it's impacting her ability to teach, then it shouldn't matter. Of course, that is assuming she shows some discretion and isn't snorting coke in the loo at the local hotel or where students and their families could see her. (But that goes for anyone.)
Everyone is entitled to a private life and shame on this friend for her holier than thou attitude.

It's nice to see that in 2015 you still have to be a delinquent degenerate with something wrong in life to chose to do recreational drugs
