46. You might not have this luxury
But here's the email I sent to a prospective employer who wanted me to pee in a cup for them. I don't do any illegal drugs, btw - I just really think it's wrong and invasive policy:

"I regret to tell you that I do not work for companies that think it's appropriate to do medical or drug testing on their employees. It's a degrading invasion of privacy having nothing to do with the position. In my opinion, it's every person's responsibility to push back against such erosions of privacy. While I would certainly pass such a test, being consistent in my principles is far more important to me."
