    Then perhaps you shouldn't post in a thread that deals with exactly such a topic, and leave the discussion to those of us who ARE willing and able to offer educated opinions on corporate strategy. No one is forcing you to say anything at all.

    So long as it's not on the job I have no problem with it.

    Re: Drug Test

    One thing about pot is that it has lingering effects of making the user more spaced out. Might be dangerous in some professions. It creates paranoia and attention deficit in me, and causes me to get highly overly analytic of other people to the point where I basically can't tolerate human company whatsoever. I'm just speaking from personal experience, it may not affect everyone the same.

    It certainly is, because you continue to post and waste space.

    I fully believe an employer has the right to terminate any employee using drugs at work or at such a time when they might possibly effect their work performance.
    But drug tests are not used for that. They are used to determine drug use within a 30 day period.

    Alcohol is considerably worse than some "drugs". A drug test makes even less sense than testing an employee to see if they have had a sip of alcohol in the last 30 days, after work, and in the privacy of their home.
    I think most people here would concur with you that drug tests are asinine. However, this does not change the fact that whether or not the tests are used is completely at the discretion of the company. If you do not want to take one, do not work somewhere where drug testing is part of the company's procedure.
