42. Nope. No way. It is atypical for most *professional* type jobs to require piss tests
Say accountant, or attorney, for example. For lower level "desk jockey" type white collar positions, I stand by my advice: namely, that those which require piss tests tend to provide lower-quality work environments in ways beyond urinalysis. The paranoia and authoritarianism inherent in applying such a test without a clear nexus to one's job gives a clear (and disturbing) window into the mentality of the employer.

"If a person feels they CAN'T give up whatever substance they are taking, I would worry that there is psychological or physical dependency going on."

Since we are dispensing with accurate medical definitions, a person who produces a seemingly unlimited supply excuses for prying into the personal lives of employees ALSO seems to be suffering from a certain sort of "dependency", to my mind.
