I fully agree that public transportation drivers, pilots, military, police,fire fighters,nurses and doctors etc, should be drug tested, and subject to random drug testing as well.

Why is it that employers feel it's necessary to make someone do an urinalysis before hiring them? It just seems a bit invasive to me. I can understand doing it if someone is showing up to work obviously under the influence or if someone is injured at work. That makes sense to me. However, don't we all deserve the benefit of the doubt? What should it matter to an employer what an employee does on his own time? If a person has no criminal record, why should it be assumed that they may be doing illegal drugs?
I just felt like a rant, honestly. I don't understand why they spend the money to drug test people without any probably cause.
If somebody is caught using drugs at work, or shows up to work under the influence then, by all means, fire them, just as you would if they were drinking at work. You don't make someone do a breathalyzer as part of the application process, why make someone do a urinalysis?

It's especially nice when you go to do the drug test in a list of time-sensitive chores, like taking your kid to school, then finding out that you can't pee.
This happened to me... and I didn't have time to drink water and wait. As I was walking out, the 'nurse' told me that that would be considered a failed drug test..... Very nice of them.
Needless to say, I didn't get that job.

You need not drug tests.
You need freedom. You need to take care of your buddies.
And to hell with those control freaks.
