Hello, I wanted to share my frustration and see if there are like-minded folks out there. I say that drug tests for employment should be OUTLAWED! Why? I could take opioids or heron or coke and it's out of my system in 36-48 hours. Vs THC, if a person were to use, it can last in the system anywhere from 60-90 days. This alone is discrmination against substances. Secondly, THC is now legal in some states sooo that should exclude it from tests just on principle. Third, it's basically employers dicitating to people how to manage their pain. I have two degrees and over fifteen years of management exp. I have medical issues that will allow me to take ANY opioid for pain and it's legal!! So for me, it's like the employment market is saying it's ok to be high on opioids as long as it's not pot and doesn't show up in the 3 days before your drug test. If employers are going to test for things like THC then they need to pay a 24 hour wage because that is dictating how someone should manage their pain weather it be on or off a job site location. Thoughts?

An employee was called in to the office to speak about scheduling the worker didnt like what was being said so their was no respons. So the managment assumed that he was on drunk or on drugs. The work said i am not under no influence lets go do a drug test. So they took him to a clinic an blood work an a urine test was done without further notice they called him a cab an sent him home. This happened last friday on the 28th of july an he still has not received word on the results or about his job. What do you guys think about this matter.

I applied for a position and was given a date of hire but when tested for Drugs I told them that I was on prescription drugs due to my disability. The next day I was told they had a freeze on their hiring. I am very disappointed in how they discriminate towards disabled people.

I was terminated on May 12 from my job. I worked with the company for five years never had any problem with any of the employees. Didn't still anything or cause any problems. But I did try for another position that pays more. I was told by supervisor that I got the position at the same week I was send to do a random drug test. I was confuse but didn't ask any question because I know I don't do drugs. So I went on with drug test after 3 to 4 days HR called me that I didn't passed the drug test. I fought back and ask for another one. I was told they'll referred to the lab but this time I'm paying for the test. I asked them if I can try a different lab they told me I can't. Second test came out positive again. So I went to the lab and ask for my results since I paid for it but they told me they can't release that information to me I have to go and get it from my job. Now I applied for unemployment i still waiting to get approved. Please help. What else can I do?

I went through my second interview for a Work From Home position and am awaiting call back for a Drug Test, however, 2 days ago I broke my leg and foot (broke fibula and tibula in half mid calf and shattered ankle)pretty bad in a fall and am now taking Percocet for pain as I await surgery to reconstruct my ankle. I should be able to do the training, but am so scared I will fail the drug test due to pain meds. Is there any hope that it won't fail me? I really need this job..

I worked at a place for 10 years. Smoked pot 4 times. Got caught twice, then got fired. I'm 52 years old that was the first time I ever been fired. Tried telling people the truth on interviews. By the look on their faces you would have thought I killed someone. What should I tell prospective employers in an interview. Please help desperate to find a job been 5 months and I'm really low on cash
