I 1000% agree.
I voted for Gore. Canada's drug laws are way more leanient then in the States. You guys also have universal healthcare. A few years ago I was considering moving to Vancouver, but it is hard to find work in Canada if you are not a citizen.

No, it should be ok. It has no effect on their fighting. Plus chances are it was used way prior to the fight.

An invasion of privacy would be if a government organization tested you without your permission.
If you CHOSE to fight in an organization that has a testing policy is your “right” not to fight PERIOD.

If you CHOSE to apply for a job at a company that has a substance abuse testing policy then it’s your “right” not to take a job there.

A real travesty of personal liberty would be to make me have to work with a drug addict or an alcoholic because the fascist-socialist government felt that drug addicts and alcoholics have the “right” to jeopardize my safety, heath and the quality my employers product. Sorry but if you chose irresponsible behavior and lack discipline I shouldn’t have to pay for it.

I like to think that my company can't tell me what I can or can't do when I am not work. Maybe you want your company to dictate aspects of your personal life but I don't want them in my personal life especially with what they can use those tests to do. Do you realize how easy it is to test positive in a piss test for nothing more than legal household foods? Do you think your entire job record should be allowed to be screwed because of that? You rant about job performance suffering well if that is the case then fire them based on their ability to get the work done. If the employee does all their work on time and to a high standard then who cares what they do in their personal life... or are you one of those people that expects their to be moral police out ther. lol Judge people based on their job performance not some urine test.

Please look up the definition of the words “private” and “public”.

Wow that was a smart well thought out reply. lol
I know the definition of those words... so what is your point? What I do in my personal life is PRIVATE. What I do on company time is PUBLIC so what is your point? The public has no right to control what I do in private. Freedom of personal choice is a beautiful thing. Why don't you address my logical points? If someone is doing their work what is the problem? your so concerned about your personal safety I suggest you get out of the little protective bubble you live in.

I say no...Smoking marijuana "before a fight" would be like having an alcoholic drink, It wouldnt help you win at all.
