    Because it is an invasion of privacy.

    Re: Drug Test

    As long as the drug test excluded pot. I'm not an advocate of pot, but it's the drug that stays in your system the longest, yet it's the most benign. Meanwhile, if you have a legal prescription for all the crap that hurried doctors hand out like candy, you're okay.

    But only for jobs that have the public safety in the hands of the worker.

    I had to research how long pot stays in your system that the average piss test could detect. And it turned out for the occasinal user the limt was 2 or 3 days for the daily usetr it was weeks.

    Drug use does have a negative effect on the man, which could well cause his performance to be ...strange , the next day..
    The man working for a corporation for good money should be 100%..
    If he must be a drug user, then he can establish his own company.

    I think not.
    If a man is that concerned with his privacy, he can go off and be a hermit.

    Does your thinking here apply to alcohol too?? It would suck to have his performance being.. "strange" because of a hangover.

    Fine I guess you don't mind if your employer places cameras inside your house

    Then don't go for that job.

    Why not if I'm fully qualified and can perfom my duties?

    So what if I go home and take couple of tokes at the end of the day in my home.

    Because if they don't want any tokers working for them then that's the company's prerogative.
