If anyone has proven the necessity of drug screens, it's you, Reader. I think you're on some sort of trip.<quoted text>
While I would certainly enjoy seeing the results from testing a number of public officials, I find the reasoning of "I have to do it, so should others," to be illogical. I did some background reading on the topic when I was working for and employer who suddenly decided to drug-test everyone. They had similar illogical reasons. A similar agency had just gone through a major public scandal with money being embezzled. Our director was looking for ways to divert any possible attention coming our way from funders and decided that this was a good way to do it.
What a number of legal-types who had looked into what drug tests can and cannot do were recommending that drug tests are primarily recommended in two situations. One is when there is actual danger to persons from impaired judgement--examples would be airline pilots, surgeons and other health care providers and so forth. The other is when and employee exhibits suspicious behavior.
Blanket work-place testing, despite being quite common (and providing business for a lot of labs), is not very effective or efficient. And that doesn't even take into account the civil liberties and privacy issues.
