Today, I was told that I was no longer being considered for the Prison Officer job I have been interviewed for, because a social media check showed I had liked a picture of drugs, so my character is inappropriate. I thought it was a picture of candy. I've never even tried weed. FML

OP never specified that the picture was weed. For all we know it was a picture of pills that looked like hard candies to OP. The only reason I see weed being mentioned in this FML is because OP wanted to show how innocent they are by not even trying it.

Google "pills." Ta dah, you now have access to any number of pictures that could easily be mistaken for candy by a person that's never needed medication. Who knows how old OP even was when he liked this picture? Could e been from when they were a preteen.

But then edibles literally would be candy and unless stated otherwise, the people doing the background check wouldn't know it was drugs either, and if it is stated then it's OPs fault

Because you should always subject all random internet pictures to the same amount of scrutiny you do your work tasks... (sarcasm) Different circumstances call for different measures. For instance, a child exiting a grocery store with a bag of candy is a lot less suspicious than an inmate with a bag of candy you did not know about.

There are drugs that literally will be melted into actual candy. No visually discernible difference, thus. Tell me, do you track down the background of every image of an edible thing you see on the net, and always read all associated fine print? It's far easier mistake to make than you can imagine...

If you willingly post things on the Internet and people find it. That is NOT an invasion of privacy. Just because it isn't who you intended to see it, you still put it out there knowing the whole world could have access.
