Drug Tests. We all hate them. Or a lot of us in this forum, at least. There is quite a problem we have with the mainstream method of drug testing - the piss test. Piss tests disproportionately test for marijuana exclusively, while being nearly unable to detect any real hardcore drug users. The reason for this is due to the fact that, seemingly, the worse the drug is for you, the quicker it comes out of your system. But this would make sense, as your body would want to work harder to rid itself of what it would consider toxins. Meanwhile, marijuana can stay in your system for months, and the body doesn't consider it as a toxin. Drug tests like this are pointless. They are nothing more than a giant waste of money. Sure, the drug tester industry who creates these piss tests and the labs you go to just to piss for it make money off of it, but the rest of the world is losing out and many positions are unable to be filled by qualified people who may use marijuana, even on the occasion. The FBI themselves have complained about how they are unable to hire any good cybersecurity people due to their drug testing standards. You are not catching people partake in harder substances, you are legitimately only weeding out people who smoke weed. It would seem like it should be the other way around, if you're doing hardcore drugs, that should be more important to worry about rather than a guy smoking weed on his time off. I say we abolish all forms of drug testing. Stop the money wasting. Stop wasting our times. If they are not functional on the job, then you fire them. If they are intoxicated during their job, then do what needs to be done as seen fit, many would say fire them. I also understand companies get tax breaks for drug testing, so there is also incentive to do so. Correct me if I'm wrong on that, I very well could be. Cba to look it up atm. If this is the case, these tax breaks need to be removed for drug testing, unless they find a way to proportionately test all drugs (in a cost-effective manner), or exclude marijuana from the list of drugs being tested. You should only ever fire someone for using marijuana on the job. Nobody bats an eye when people drink outside their job, and we already know which one is worse for your body and your mind based on alcohol vs. weed, but god forbid you smoke a joint on your own time.
