Colorado Businessman Blames ‘Stoned’ Workers For Move To South Carolina


I’m sure this isn’t the only businessman completely fed up with stoners showing up to “work” in the morning, completely baked. But this one is out of there.

Anyone who has hired a real stoner knows the initiative is just not there. And shut-up with the excuses, “oh, I’m more creative when I’m stoned and I can focus more…” bla-bla BS. Shut up and take another hit.

Keep telling yourself that getting stoned every morning before work is anyway to go through life. You’re going to get passed up for everything or the guy may just take your job to South Carolina:

When workers at his Colorado business went to pot, Mark Brawner said it was enough for him to roll out of the Rockies and head for South Carolina.

Little SpiderBrawner, who ran Little Spider Creations out of an old  Denver warehouse for years until this month, told KUSA-TV Thursday he moved because pot was hurting his company.

He said employees started to come to work stoned after the state legalized the drug for recreational use in 2012.

“Marijuana got into our industry. Half the sculptors will come in high. As soon as we’d catch it, they’d be let go.

We went through 25 sculptors. Only five of (our sculptors) either were quality or would show up unimpaired.”

“The main reason we pulled out was because of marijuana.”

But Brawner told Friday his comments got “twisted out of proportion,” although he did not deny relocating to the Myrtle Beach area, where smoking pot is still illegal.

“They had an agenda. They got what they wanted and not what they heard,” he said.

The company’s a new home is a spacious facility in North Myrtle Beach, S.C. The local Chamber of Commerce lured Brawner to move with a $25,000 grant. In exchange Brawner pledged to create 35 jobs and to make a $2.65 million investment in his business. In Colorado, Little Spider employed 47 sculptors, artists and animators.
