Some people may associate smoking marijuana with laziness but a new study has proven otherwise.

According to the website Civilized,

The study, published this month in the journal Health Economics, found that safe, legal access to medical marijuana resulted in a “statistically significant decline" in employee sick leave."

In states where medical marijuana was legal, people calling off work declined by 8-15%, especially for full-time workers and middle-aged men.

It costs businesses in America almost $24 billion every year for employees who don't show up to work. The results of this study show that legalization of marijuana could increase productivity and decrease cost.

I wonder if the same thing applies for those taking "smoke" breaks at work...
