53% of prisoners in USA are incarcerated for non-violent drug crimes such as simple possession.
This in sheer numbers is more than the entire prison population for all of Europe for ALL crimes!
It is unacceptable for anyone to be inebriated on booze or stoned on coke at the workplace but what one does in their own private time is their business. Useing cocaine or alcohol responsibly in no way impairs their job performance.
The drug free work place is all about one group enforcing their morality on others.
People who use illegal drugs are no better or worse a person than someone who does not.

Among other things as a police employee a Crossing guard is held to a higher (pardon the pun) standard than a civilian. One problem with drugs, other than alcohol, it is hard to tell how much someone has had, therfore it is difficult to establish a standard, other than zero.
