Today is a special day and is one that comes after many days of planning. A young man walks into a room and grabs the hidden package he had already prepared long ago in anticipation of this day. He opens it up and removes the contents making sure that everything is still there and undisturbed just as he had packed it.
He goes to a bathroom and turns on the hot water. He then takes out containers that hold chemical substances, using a syringe he measures out the exact amount of liquids/compounds he needs to mix together. Then he checks the temperature of the water and mixes in an exact amount to complete the chemical concoction.
He then fills up a small device with the substances he had previously mixed. He then straps the device to his body making sure not to tighten it up so much as to damage the device, but tight enough that it can still be hidden under his clothes without being noticed. Then he connects some batteries to the device to power it and secures them to his body/device as well.
He then jumps in his car and starts to drive. He knows exactly where he is going, has plenty of time, and does not even have to speed to get there. Pulling into the parking lot he sees that the place is packed with people, he proceeds to park his car, and walk inside. The receptionist greets him and he signs in. After waiting for a little bit the man is called back behind the counter and walks to a room in the back.
He then sits down at a desk and pulls out his ID. After checking all his documents the women behind the desk gives him a cup and tells him not to wash his hands or turn on the water. He then goes into a closed room by himself releasing the contents of the device into the cup making sure to go above the line and making sure it is warm enough. He walks out of the room and hands her the cup. After collecting his belongings, he walks out of the building, breathes a sigh of relief, and shakes his head at the stupidity of it all.
The fact that it takes as much effort to pass certain drug tests as it does to blow one's self is just stupid. The fact that he has to live like an outlaw/criminal simply because he prefers to relax after work with something that grows out of the ground and is not processed in any way by man instead of something that comes out of a bottle or is prescribed by a doctor. Really he just wants to be left the f*** alone, I remember that feeling quite well.
If someone CANNOT PASS A DRUG TEST, THAT THEY KNOW THEY WILL HAVE TO TAKE, THEN THEY MUST REALLY HAVE A DRUG PROBLEM, AND SHOULD BE GETTING SOME HELP INSTEAD. Most drugs do not even stay in a person's body for more then 24 hours so the only thing you are "testing" for is weed really. WTF is the point of a pre-anything drug test? To waste even more money? To make sorry a$$ insurance companies feel better? How many people actually fail the scheduled tests, the tests they will know they will have to take?
In Florida for example they had a failed program introduced by dipchit Rick Scott were you had to take a drug test to get any kind of benefits from the state. At the current cost of a drug test $30-$40 they add up quick. Of the 4,086 who took the tests, only 108 (just 2.6 percent) failed, and most were for marijuana (the highly addictive and dangerous drug that it is...). That is far below the recorded 6 percent state average of Floridians who use drugs, SINCE THEY KNOW THEY WILL HAVE TO TAKE THE TEST IN ADVANCE. Requiring testing did not reduce the amount of applications either. At about $35 per test, the state had to reimburse $118,140. After deducting the “savings” from the 108 who did not receive benefits, Florida lost $45,780. Rick Scott still made money however since his company did the drug testing.
"But how can I tell if it was the joint last night or the joint before work?" you will ask. How can you tell if a person is drunk? Do they not act different? Is their speech not impaired some? How about their balance/movement, is that not messed up? Can you not smell the alcohol on their breath? If you cannot tell if the person you work with everyday is f***ed up or not then maybe just maybe they are not that messed up.
Is working while sick from a cold/virus any different, and HOW AND THE F*** ARE YOU NOT IMPAIRED WHEN YOU ARE SICK? Why is it ok to take medication that makes it dangerous to drive or operate heavy machinery yet it is perfectly fine to go to work on them or in your system? The f***ing hypocrisy is insane and greedy insurance companies are to blame. We have only wasted over 1 trillion dollars on the "War on Drugs" and it is a huge chunk of the national debt. The vast majority of people would be better off and would have more money without insurance companies too. If only people would take some responsibility for themselves and stop living in a fantasyland where everything will be "ok" since they have insurance... No wonder insurance companies make so much damn money off you dipchits.
