Everyone needs a job but these people need background checks and disclosure. This is probably why many drug rehab programs are basically another crime school where more time is spent on the legal consequences and how to avoid them rather than actually change behavior ie quit drugs.

I here too many stories of how everybody gives there story of how they were screwed. It's important to know the legal ramifications of one's actions under drugs but the primary purpose of rehab is to change behavior or teach people how to stop doing drugs.
