I know I probably shoulda reported him. The park was kinda busy and I was towing a newbie around and just didnt make it to City Hall. Oh well, next time (because I'm sure there'll be a next time - lol)
my brother once told me a story about one summer he took a swim in SW after dropping a hit of acid, but ill never know if it was a story or really happened, of course he might not know for sure either.....
The thing about pot is that it makes the person think they are more funny than they really are, and at the same time making them less funny than they where before. noticable to everyone who isn't stoned themselves.
I would have reported it. That is actualy a little more dangerous than I like to be at Disneyland. ...

We had a similar issue leaving Timon on Sunday. As my sister's boyfriend navigated the exit, the CM on guard at the cones, made no move to indicate where to go, so my sister's bf made a decession and moments later we were trapped. He stood there and watched not bothering to walk over.
Several cars followed and we were all trapped for several minutes as we reversed and formed a queue where he was standing before he laggardly moved the cones to let us out. As we pulled up we looked at him and he looked so stoned I thought his heart might stop. He stood there as my soon to be brother in law jokingly beraded him and he said nothing and did nothing. Wow, just wow, we were lucky there were no accidents. Disney must be lowering employee standards to attract new employees.

One thing was a little odd however, the skipper we had on Jungle, was so stoned! He reeked of it, and was just so weird! I mean I can handle weird as some of you are aware of, but this guy was really REALLY acting loopy! His actions were so odd and his delivery was sooooooo, stoner-like. And he was older too! I mean I’m used to younger 20-something skippers and he had to have been mid to late 30’s. My friend even mentioned, before I said anything, how he noticed the pot smell coming from him and how weird he was. I sat RIGHT next to him and was getting a contact high from him I swear. He was making all these really odd movements and was just so bizarre.
Anyway, I didn’t report him because he wasn’t rude or anything but I was wondering, has this happened to anyone else? Is pot smoking and working a common cast member “thing”? Should I have reported him? Nancy Matt is in search of answers to solve this case, it's up to you to help him do it!
That explains the constant blaring of "Sugar Magnolia" coming from Adventureland, thank the stars you are on the case!

WOW!!! Did you happen to get a look at his name or have a description of this guy. I would like to know just in case I ever had to get on his boat, I could request another boat. I'm not going to let some idiot compromise the safety of myself and my children. Thank you for making me aware.
Eh, what's wrong with smokin a little weed? You could eventually wind up being president. You know they grow that stuff in Latin America. I thought about buying some when I was down south a while ago but I didn't speak Latin so I didn't bother.
I'm a die hard ol' musician who strongly supports a person's right to imbibe on the substance of their choice, be it legal, illegal or just plain silly. But doing any of that while operating heavy machinery (and that's what a Jungle Cruise boat essentially is!)? Absolutely unacceptable. In his stoned state he could really get into telling some silly joke while totally forgetting that the throttle was full open, slamming into a boat in front. Not safe, not cool, report the *******!!!
