How are people who won't pass a drug test suppose to get a job these days?
I mean i understand health and safety but no one should interfere with a deal between two private parties. Business are doing everything they can these days to cover themself because if someone hurts themself and was on something then as usual it's always someone else fault, you didn't drug test them so it's your fault.
It's about liability, not nosiness. In our society today, just being remotely involved places one at some level of reliability in an accident. Here's an example.It's like many private business have stopped friday knock off shout, someone willingly decides to have a drink or more and drives home has a accident, not there fault, someone elses fault.
For some reason these days someone is responsible for another individuals choices and decisions.
I think the war on drugs had the right intention but looking back, we understand it didn't work.I got high once. Didn't care for it, and never did it again.
Having said that, the "war on drugs" turned out to be the war on America, most notably on minorities. The private prison lobby is constantly pushing for longer sentences for weed, to keep their profits up. And the drug cartels in Mexico owe their existence to our drug laws.
It's time to realize that we're doing more damage to America than we're doing good, with those laws.
