    I was reading Otto's thread about another good interview. He said he had to go for a drug test.
    As I have said I work for a Pharmacutical Company that manafactures injectables. They fill demerol, morphine, hydromorphine (about 500 times more powerfull than morphine), lidocane, ect. The funny thing is you only take a drug test when you get hired. They don't give random drug tests, or drug test you if you get hurt on the job. I think the reason is we are exposed to them enough if they did drug test us most of the employees would show up positive for opates. I don't think they want to have to explane that.

    One of my coworkers passes with flying colors every time- he can ID each and every drug they show him with either eye, no hesitation. They haven't stumped him yet.
    Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

    I rarely take asprin much less any other drug (caffine excluded).

    The previous company, it was known that several guys did drugs (mostly mary j). Everytime the insurance company asked for a random text the same handfull of people got tested every time, usually 1 or 2 times a year.

    And the people that would even admit to doing drugs just so happened to never get tested.

    I'm not too for drugs by any means, but the part that upset me was the fairness of the situation.

    Yet one more good reason to leave there.

    Our company policy states that if you get hurt on the job you must have a drug/alcohol test done within 12 hours.

    well, I just got done with the physical and drug test. I know the test will be clear since I don't use drugs. And I passed the physical.

    Hmm About 5 years ago

    The farmers or ranchers down in Mexico did some brush burning. That smoke caused a thick haze here, about like fog. That must of been at least 400 miles from here. The mommy's were covering their little childerns noses as they got out of school going to the car. Anyway in all of that smoke, there was burning wild marijuana, peyote, and other stuff that grows natrual there. The guys in the shipping lanes in the Gulf of Mexico were exempt from drug testing for a while because the smoke was so thick. Roy

    The place I used to work had the same policy. It just seem wierd that working for a place that has all kinds of controlled drugs doesn't require drug testing. The only time I have heard of anyone having to take a drug test was some of the material handlers had to take one when some controlled drugs came up missing. It didn't take them long to figure out who it was. But that was a few years ago before I came to work there.
