During lunch time in the office kitchen, some colleagues often share how was their weekend by saying they had drinks/pints/alcohol, got drunk and had fun.
e.g. "We went to bar X and had drinks, we drank a bit too much but had an awesome night"
Our social events team often organizes night outs with the office where we all go to a bar and drink alcohol, dance and have fun. We sometimes also drink a bit of whiskey in the office as a celebration of some new product's release.
The above indicates it is OK to talk about alcohol (legal drug) in the workplace.
Is it OK to talk about illegal ones though?
For instance, would it be inappropriate -and why- for me to share my weekend's time during lunch, as my colleagues do, but including illegal drugs instead of legal ones?
e.g. "Weekend was really nice, went with my friends to a techno party and had some ecstasy" or "we chilled at my friend's house and smoked weed"
My goal is not to show off that I am using illegal drugs or doing illegal actions. I just want the freedom to talk honestly about my weekend when I am asked, just like the others do (i.e. consuming legal drugs). I am not gonna step into the kitchen and say "Hey I did MDMA", just honestly answering/discussing when I am asked, like everybody else. It's not my goal to focus on drugs either, just to mention them as part of a normal conversation. Lots of stuff are being talked during lunch, from sports to politics even philosophy. Couldn't I express my political view on drugs for example? It's a social issue and an interesting one, can't I talk about it?
Office is small with a friendly atmosphere. Everybody knows more or less the name of each other. Many people are also friends outside of work. That's why it's common to hear "We went to that bar, had drinks, got drunk etc."
