Employee Drug Testing Companies Profit from Failed Employer Policies

Drug testing corporations want your body - and your company's money - even though their tests don't establish workplace performance issues, impairment, or current drug use.

"Two of the former Drug Enforcement Agency officials who recently publicly urged the federal government to nullify new state pot laws in Washington and Colorado are facing criticism for simultaneously running a company that may profit from keeping marijuana illegal . . . a company that specializes in workplace drug testing, among other employee programs," according to an article in U.S. News and World Report.

Remember, the Drug Free Workplace Act does not require or authorize employment drug testing.

The U.S. Department of Labor confirms - and this is a quote - "drug testing does not determine impairment or current drug use." DOL E-laws.

For more information about these officials and their company, read "Former DEA Chiefs May Profit From Illegal Pot, Critics Say," an insightful article by journalist Elizabeth Flock.

More than 1.3 million Colorado employers and workers want a more sensible policy. Protect each other from humiliating physical intrusions.
