Hi Alex, I am unable to retrieve this doc. please send to me in regular format so I can print it out.

Sorry, always forget you can't get to that site. Here you are:

People are reluctant to confront illegal drug use in families and the workplace for a variety of reasons. In terms of family confronting someone is difficult as they may perceive your actions as being authoritarian or may feel that you are trying to tell them how to live their lives. This can make for a very difficult conversation that most people just simply don't want to confront as it may lead to a long term conflict. Being that the person is in the family this could place undo tension that may exist for quite some time. In addition, the person in the family who is using the illegal drugs may not feel that their use is illegal or inappropriate and likely wouldn't appreciate someone attempting to change their mind on the subject. As is the case in some states some illegal drugs like marijuana are being legalized as the majority of people feel that the use of such drugs is no different than other drugs like caffeine or nicotine which are widely accepted.
When it comes to the workplace people are not likely to confront illegal drug use simply because of the fact that it could backfire on them and make the working relationship difficult. No where is this more apparent than if a superior was illegally using drugs. Approaching that superior could potentially lead to retribution or other problems in terms of future career growth if the person being approached doesn't accept the problem and deal with it. The other issue with work related drug use is the fact that people you work with aren't family and if they decide to waste their lives on illegal drugs that is their own decision to make and as such there's little reason to interfere with the situation. Also, in the workplace it's more unlikely that saying something will change the situation as the person confronting them is not family.

I guess that is because I signed up for that premium program they offered on here for a month or so. So I don't know what effect it has on my questions.

Ok, didn't realize that. You can post it here if you still need it.
