31. The problem is that for most non-alcohol drug testing.....

 

they are not testing for an impairment level, but mere existance. So you can't fairly make that assumption of impairment merely due to a positive test for, say, THC.

Having said that, I work in a government job, am disallowed, by law, from having a union, and must undergo manditory random and non-random drug testing. If I have to do it for actually earning a paycheck while contributing to society, I'd say welfare recipients should smile and pee in the damn cup.

The only real concern I have is: Is it actually cost effective? Many people claim it isn't, but I haven't seen any actual numbers on money spent vs. money saved.
