I'm a libertarian myself.. I think if one is stupid enough to lose their job, family and possibly even life, through the abuse of drugs it's a personal problem.
I, personally, believe that society should shame such behavior. Not coddle those who participate in it.
However, this is WAR!
The war on drugs continues unabated for decades now.
All is fair in love & war you know? That's what we say here in America.
So here's my idea to WIN the drug war now!
Stop pussy footing around, it's a f'ing WAR, and make random hair follicle drug testing MANDATORY for ALL employees on a WEEKLY basis.
Anyone / everyone found to have any illegal substance in their body should be fired immediately, on the spot!
Marijuana is a schedule 1 drug right there with heroin. Don't forget that.
Xanax in your blood to calm your nerves and help keep you from shooting up the office? You better produce a Rx for that or you're gone.
That's what a f'ing WAR should look like!
So why don't we do that?
You think unemployment is bad now try firing at least another 50% of the worker slaves!
Which is exactly what would happen if you implemented mandatory random hair follicle drug testing.
