I do not and have never supported being guilty before proven guilty which is what drug testing is. There are no protections for the employee as to what information drug testing is used for, such as early diagnosis of deadly deseases where an employer can fire the employee to save on medical cost and lost time. I have worked for companies where if you get hurt they test you and can agree with that, but assuming everyone is guilty and have to be tested is wrong. Soon if you don't have the right genes employers will be able to discriminate against you and as such we will be creating a whole new class of unem;loyable people whom we will have to support or let die.

Yes because the most common ingredient used in cough medicine is Dextromethorphan. Which is antitussive drug. Since the introduction of this drug, preparations containing Dextromethorphan been used in manners inconsistent with their labeling, often as a recreational drug.

She took cough medicine which contained codeine, and codeine is what showed up in her urine. She had a prescription for it, so I do not feel she should have been fired. She's worked the same job for 20 years...a major feat in this economy. Obviously if she was a recreational drug user, she would have been busted long ago. She was legitimately using the medicine...not Robi-trippin' :)
