    I am a pot fan but haven't smoked in over a year. This seems like a giant waste of money for my company. I prefer drinking anyway but taking pot off the table makes me antsy.

    p.s. I'm in an office far away from heavy machinery.

    All it means is someone is not being tested speak up if they call your name next time.I was tested at random (non post accident) 6 times in one year finally said something and the following year I got one random.

    This, Companies get a better rate if they test a certain percentage of their employee's. If they can't find enough clean one's they recycle what they have to get the numbers up.

    i had to hire companies to piss test people.

    i felt bad about it considering my love of pot and the fact that i didn't have to test.


    back in the day, somebody took the air force to court over piss tests. while i was in thailand, the courts said the tests were ok. the base i was on tested everybody with 4 stripes and below in one day. they lined us up like cattle to a slaughter on the flightline.

    so many people in critical positions showed up positive, they didn't prosecute any of us.

    there is strength in numbers!
    :flag:

    being tested 3 times in that short of time is odd. are you sure it's random? do you look like a pot smoking degenerate?

    Some dirty MF called anonymously to IAD once, I had 3 randoms in a month. I told them the last time, "you guys are barking up the wrong tree." :haha:

    The key to pissing clean is to steer clear of drugs and narcotics.

    Seriously.

    If someone's driving a desk and not heavy machinery and they're getting their work done, who the fuck cares?

    Naw, just the pot.... Alcohol is legal, and coke, heroin, PCP, meth, LSD, etc. all pass out of your system within a few days, while pot stays there for at least a month. So if ya wanna piss clean, just stick to the really hard drugs and getting drunk. You sit home on the weekend eating Cheetohs and playing video games and smoking a joint, and you are out of a job, hippy!

    The wall is breached. Pot will be legal eventually. After that, companies will slowly stop fucking with people over it since companies that don't fuck with people will become more attractive to work for.

    Yeah, I guess it depends upon how expensive/sophisticated the test is. For your random, run-of-the-mill, at-work, drug test, I'm guessing if you're not in a warehouse or operating heavy machinery, they give you the cheapest one possible, just to be able to say that they drug test.
