: What's wrong with that if nobody is being affected but yourself and maybe another consensual adult? "Ain't nobody's business!" is right.


: True, but we believe that adults should have the freedom to do what they want to themselves, no matter how knuckleheaded, as long as they are not harming others. I'm a strong believer in freedom.


: Maybe there are more people in prison now than ever because of this country's insane war on drugs.

I say, legalize all drugs.

: I could go on, but my boss just told me I need to pee in a cup and give it to him, or else. Ain't it grand?

Well, you can always quit. I believe an employer has every right to drug test an employee, as it can directly affect his performance. For instance, do you want a guy who is doped up to be operating a fork-lift around heavy machinery? Around other people?
If you don't like the company policy, find another job that doesn't require drug tests.
Personal responsibility can be a bitch.
