Well campers , back from work now , and what an interesting
Personally I don't mind dope smokers , a pretty harmless bunch .
However speeders and coke heads do annoy me . If you're not one of them , you must be the enemy . They always seem to be waiting for you to turn
around so they can drive that knife in .I just don't trust them.
I have actually worked for bosses that sell to the employees , and
expect you to join in . I leave as soon as I find out .
My main concern is the social cost of drug abuse , and it's impact
on safety standards in the workplace .
One interstate trucker I knew , woud drive10,000miles/ 15,000 kms./week
constantly on speed . He had all kinds of health problems , but could
not see them himself . A drug test may have saved his life , and the car
load of people he ran over . The employer never tested anybody , and
I think they were supplying him .
Once a problem like that is so obvious , I think the government is
negligent by ignoring it . It may be intrusive , but what price is a life ?
I agree that someone who smokes a reefer every two months , is no
danger to anyone , and should not be criminalised by a test .
... anyway , thanks for responding , it seems most people are against
government stepping into the workplace . Where I live , random ,
roadside tests are around , and I guess they are an effective deterrant .
