    Good. Drug testing is bullshit because HR uses it as a weapon to sever people without paying unemployment benefits.

    Should go perfect. They're still testing people who operate vehicles and have guns, among other things, so there's nothing to fear.

    Legalize marijuana and tax the fuck out of it. Throwing people in jail for possession of marijuana is a waste of taxpayer dollars.

    Has it happened yet, even before the law has changed? Either way, this law has no relevancy to what daycare bullshit you brought up.

    Admit you didn't read the article and you're fueled on anti-marijuana paranoia.

    So wait a minute, the factoid you presented now has suddenly no importance? Wut?

    What's to read? NYC says drug testing will not be mandatory. It's just like now. if you have those jobs, you stay clean for six months and then take the piss test, get hired and then you go back to your old habits. I work with many a guy and have worked with many a guy and girl who have done exactly that.

    If you think that someone under the influence couldn't do any harm because they are not in those categories, LOL ok. What about the guy that works on your car? Do you really want a housekeeper with a penchant for being stoned? Most people don't want people in their house unsupervised that have a drug problem.

    The only thing this will do is either force people to pay non-stoners more, yey!! Or accept a lower standard. (far more likely.)

    Lol what, it doesn't take 6 months to pass a urine test. 6 weeks at most for the heaviest of blunt smokers.

    Besides, those tests are a joke and very easy to cheat. Unless you got a office assistant watching the stream travel from your dickhole to the cup, a condom and a heating pad is all it takes.

    I'm asking you to read what you linked, because it's obvious you didn't, and I'm telling you that the daycare argument you brought up is stupid because again, you didn't read what you linked
    The article is 4 paragraphs (EDIT: 4 sentences. paragraphs is just incorrect.) and you still didn't read all of it

    You don't need to wait 6 months. They're super duper easy to cheat too.
    There's no effective method for catching these people other than something like pop quiz piss tests so we're S.O.L

    Coming to work while already stoned out of your skull doesn't seem to have any bearing on this law and bosses/superiors will tell you that it's wrong to do so anyway.
    People who go to work stoned are walking a fine line between "I'm even better at my job baked!" vs "I'm a fuck-up even when I'm not high"

    I don't care as long as he doesn't stink my home up

    Citation needed, preferably from those under the age of 65
    Oh wait, the only people with housekeepers are seniors anyway

    Lol you're paranoid about people who smoke pot. Get with the times

    They should get rid of the currently most used tests for opioid use as well, as they are notoriously unreliable. Had a poppy-seed bagel recently? No job for you.
    In Norway we use a much more accurate test, and it is used sparingly because we respect our own people unlike you lot, also it is much more expensive.

    How about instead of random drug tests, random breathalyzers after lunch break.

    Describing people who smoke weed as having a "drug problem" is a bit strong, maybe you should try it for yourself and unclench that butthole a little.

    Also in Australia they can't drug test you at work unless your employment contract states that the employer retains the right to test you, and even then it's only under specific circumstances

    You make my point for me.

    Again you make my point for me.

    Again you make my point for me.

    Just as long as it doesn't affect you personally. K. That's typical.

    No I don't.
    I don't want a stoned mechanic working on my brakes. I have seen it first hand how labor intensive jobs are effected by pot and potheads. See that little bit about "construction workers exempted from the law." There's a reason for that. What reason would that be to make the liberal city and state of NY ban stoned construction workers?

    As so far as child care, what about the stoned cook or receiving agent for the daycare center. We've seen how fucked up some people are who are "not high' working in these places, why introduce them? Seems like you're tempting a bad situation.
