Foolish behaviour. But I guess the RNZAF must find it a lot harder these days stopping the use of narcotic drugs among their younger personnel as it seems to be an everyday occurrence nowadays for a heck of a lot more young people than it was in the 1980's when I was recruited. I'd never even smelled weed till long after I left the RNZAF. Now the Labour and Green parties are about to legalise it. That will make things interesting for the military. I assume military law won't go the same way hopefully.
I asked some Canadians in military how it is handled now weed is legal in Canada. Same as alcohol they said. If you can do your job the next day OK, if it appears you can't sent home for the day then into medical assessment process. No smoking during working hours.
When asked about what will happen on deployments, Canada like us has some missions that are declared dry. They expect weed will be added to this prohibition keeping with the 'same as alcohol' line.
