54. I didn't like the urinalysis in the Army, but I understood why it was necessary. We
lost one of our LT's in the Brigade I was in because he kept using cocaine. Now, I didn't want someone addicted to cocaine working with me anyway, honestly, not in life-or-death situations, not driving in a convoy, etc.

There are certainly some jobs (truck driving, people who work heavy equipment, etc.) where a person can understand why there is urinalysis.

Now...McDonald's requiring a piss test? Not sure I understand the reasoning behind that, other than to humilate workers.

I'll admit, I'm not a Libertarian. I don't think heroin should be legal, because I think substance abuse does harm to a society. Alcoholism alone is a real scourge upon society.

I don't think urinalysis is required in all jobs, but yeah, I think some jobs, I can see the reasoning behind it.
