The other day on Thom’s show there was a discussion about drug testing for people on public assistance. I forget who brought this idea up, then the oil companies CEO should be drug tested too. I totally agree with this statement. Under equal protection under the 14th amendment of the constitution it should be only fair that any person(including corporation) must have drug testing. I think Florida requires any person on public assistance to submit to drug testing. I believe this should include any corporation in that state that is either getting tax incentives, subsides, grants or any government assistance. This would mean every person working for the corporation would have to submit to drug testing. The argument that it is the government interfering with “my good time” or “a person’s right to have a good time;” I disagree with when it comes to drugs and alcohol where the potential for harming another person exists. I completely agree and support drug testing in the work place randomly and pre-employment. I believe this creates a safe work environment and less hostile work environment (people not under the influence or hung over – people not grumpy because of going through withdrawals). Define what is an drug and a drug addict and those are the people that will be effected by this law. I believe heroin, cocaine, LSD, designer drugs, hallucinogens, or any drug that distorts a person perception, creates visions, or aggressiveness needs to be tested for because of safety for the work environment. Does that mean they will not get the job that they are applying for depends on the work performed? Does that mean the person could lose their job? No, I like to see more suspensions and treatment programs before the decision is made to terminate a person position. Does that mean that I do not want to legalize marijuana or all drugs? No, legalize with taxation and let non-violent offenders out of prison for drug related crimes(they must have been reasonable non-violent while in prison too).
