225. Drug testing misses the point
when it comes to a safe work environment. If you use cocaine or other salt-like substances you just need 2-3 days to get clean. That is very easy to plan around. Most of these tests don't test for alcohol which can be very dangerous for everyone if someone is drinking on the job. With THC you could be sober for a week and still test dirty. Someone who uses THC during their free time is not any more dangerous than someone who uses alcohol during their free time. With drug testing, the real world results is people who use substances will stick with alcohol (since they don't test for it) or something like cocaine which doesn't stay in the system long because it is water soluble.
