Drug testing for burger flippers and papper pushers prob not cost effective. Jobs like security, chemical, power production, transportation that put people and environments at risk, it's not about costs. When state secrets are at risk, billion dollar facilities, billion dollar jets, public safety, environmental impact, fines for chemical / gas/ nuclear release, cost of human life, drug test are a fraction of cost. But it's about preventing operator error that can harm whole communities and not cause loss of life. Just don't get the stakes do you?
