Since every job seems to require a drug test lets test the people who we let run our country!!!!

I say Mandatory drug testing for the president, 1 day before he signs any bill passed by congress.

Monthly Mandatory drug testing for all governors.

Yeah, I agree. If I have to get a drug test to get even the most basic job, then those running our country should get the same thing. Bet a good many of them would fail.

I totally agree. Police officers as well. If they can legislate what "we the people" can and can't ingest on our personal time we need to make sure they're on the up and up. They should be held to a high standard if they're are legislating or enforcing laws on the average tax paying citizen.

Cops are given drug tests. But I am all for this. If I have to fill a cup to be employed, than so should a welfare reciepant. When I was in the Army, I had a Major (He was a Company Commander) piss "HOT" for coc aine. They let him retire rather than bust him. I was quite annoyed. T&C prevents me from how I really felt.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

How about no?

1. We need less drug testing and less drug laws.

2. Use of any given drug does not determine efficacy at one's job.

3. This will have no positive effect and will enrich laboratories at the expense of taxpayers.

hell yeah, any individual that lobbys on behalf of a corporation to a member of congress or senate must submit to a blood or hair drug test before and after every meeting with an elected official .

Those guys in suits must be using there own products if they are passing these stupid laws

If insurance companies and the rest want to test for nicotine, let them test for the rest.They raise taxes for tobacco under the guise of protecting its' Citizens, the rest of the drugs should be free game also and taxed as much.

Logic does not apply anymore in this government. You need to think out of the box.

It depends on the municipality. Where I live I'm not aware of any local agencies that drug test. Federal and state do but not the locals.

1. I agree with to an extent

2. Is just wrong. There are to many examples of people high who have caused accidents, many of which were fatal.

3. You are totally correct on that. If a law is passed making this mandatory, use it to your advantage and invest in those companies.

I'm glad I don't live where most of you do. I have had many jobs over the years; and not once have I ever been asked to take a drug test.

exactly!!! That is the spirit. Its time we even the playing field, Congressmen should be naked body scanned, Before they enter the house and vote. I'm worried that these drug users could bring in anal cavity bombs and disrupt the votes.

Sure. And there are tons more people who have caused accidents, some fatal, who were completely sober.

Drug tests do not determine whether a person is inebriated at the time of testing. It only determines whether a substance was metabolized. Someone who consumed marijuana one time during a weekend will show positive weeks later even though they have remained 100% sober at their job. Drug testing is unjust.

Ive been told coc aine stays in you're system for 2 days or less . Cannabis stays in you're system for 30 or more days depending on frequency of use. Crack and coke heads have no problem passing drug tests where I work. you are given 2 days notice for the test. There is something wrong with that. I would rather have someone over my head working that smoked a dobie the night before than someone who has done some rails.
