The military, police and most public employees DO have to take piss tests and they DO get fired/kicked out if they fail.
Wow. I must live under a freakin' rock. I checked and sure enough the miltary does drug screening, although you aren't discharged on first offense. Some police piss test, some don't, sometimes only new hires and cops in drug and prostitution related enforcement are tested. Public employees are hit or miss. And of course your elected federal officials certainly are not piss tested unless by thier health insurance companies.
Color me surprised. I've been tested at most jobs as a hire screen by the insurance company but never subjected to truly random testing. WTF is wrong with this world?
The only reasonable casue for piss testing someone at random would if their job had severe safety implications. But I guess that includes cops and military. I'll need to think on this one ...
