Took them regularly for 18 years.

No biggee.

If you're going to do any type of Q-level welding, it makes sense.

I've had to take a drug test for previous positions but not my current one. I have never had to take one after getting hired.

I sit as a computer all day doing design work. About the worst that would happen if I was high is I'd end up with some wild designs.

Here's some help for the drug test= Uppers are green. Hash is brown. You smoke weed. You smoke crack. Shoot up heroine. Don't buy "20's" that look like "30's", they're really 10's.

Work in a jail with the druggies. We have a pre-employment screening and then monthly randoms. My number came up last month, 18 months from my hire.

I work on military aircraft full time. I get tested at least once a year and several random test. Not a big deal Hell I got to pee every day!
I do believe that all Polititions, Law enforcement, medical professionals and lawyers should be tested.
Welfare reciepiants should get tested then put to work before they get a check. There is trash along every highway.
If you want to do drugs, knock yourself out but dont bitch when you get busted!

im a pipe fitter and we do industrial refrigeration. i didnt have to do drug tests until i had to get all my dot bullshit to take a job trailer to arizona. they have it in the handbook that they do randoms but they never do. most places that do pressure pipe welding do drug test when you hire on though. some facilities when you work there require it also.

Because he has used an illegal substance. So he gets what he deserves, no whining, no crying. Put down your purse, pull up your big boy pants and take responsibuilty for your actions. Don't want to get "fucked by the system"? DONT DO DRUGS! Or get them legalized and smoke away!

Thats bullshit, So if I get a speeding ticket I should get fired or don't report winnings or don't pay sales tax on web stuff I buy.



If the test showed what you were on right now then I would be all for it, but if I smoke a joint or what ever out camping 2 weeks ago and get fired because of it. Really???????
