33. But they ALL require that today, at least from what I've heard. And there are
also states that are talking about making urinalysis mandatory for collecting any benefits like unemployment, etc.

So again the best advice I can give in this kind of an environment is just don't smoke/take anything that could get you fired because jobs are way too hard to come by and probably will still be way too hard to come by for a long time.

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.

Now, this person said they have a valid prescription. That might just work. I know that in the Army, if a physician prescribes opiates following surgery etc. then all you have to do is prove you have a prescription and everything is okay.

On the other hand, even with a valid prescription, a company might say, "we still don't want pot-smokers on the job."
I don't know anything about California state laws so I don't know what companies can and can't fire their workers for, but I'd be pretty worried about being fired even if I had a valid prescription.
