Take a weed break at work. It's allowed!

• http://money.cnn.com

At most offices in America, smoking a joint during your lunch break or eating cannabis-laced brownies at your desk would land you in HR.

But in some states, not only won't you be punished -- you might be rewarded.

Kyle Sherman and Chase Wiseman cofounded Flowhub, which provides software for the cannabis industry, in 2015. The Denver-based startup has been a weed-friendly workplace from day one.

"Our philosophy at Flowhub is to get s*** done," said Sherman. "If it helps our employees get work done, then we don't care if they consume at work."

Sherman and Chase both consume marijuana at work, either in weekly brainstorming meetings or toward the end of the day.

"It definitely surfaces new ideas and a fresh take on things," said Sherman.

While recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado, smoking of any kind isn't allowed in the building. So Flowhub's 18 employees, most of them millennials, are free to bring in cannabis-infused edibles, sodas and juices.

So far, there haven't been any negative outcomes.

"Our clients are some of the biggest firms in the cannabis industry," said Sherman. "We have to be on point with our work. We've never had a problem yet."
