    I second that motion, but it will never happen. Partly because of the initial cost of testing, but for the main reason that being part of a public agency you are bound by law not to offend the public. As soon as you start pushing for mandatory UA's for acceptance onto welfare, you will be hit by the lawsuits from the ACLU stating that you are discriminating against the Poor, underprivilaged, and unemployed. And being a government agency you are not allowed to discriminate....eventhough it makes complete sense. Its all about limiting liability.

    WHAT?????? Mke, I understand what your saying but they discriminate ALL THE TIME!!!!!!

    'Oh your single and you lost your job after 2 months and can't find another one?' DENIED!!!!

    'Oh your married and one of you lost your job but one of you makes $180.00 a week?' DENIED!!!!

    'Oh both of you lost your jobs but you have no kids?' APPROVED (but only for one time rent assistance and $170 in food stamps for the month) and you need to pay us back that rent assistance before you can get that again.

    "Oh your single with 5 kids and 3 different fathers that you know of, your 20 and NEVER worked a day in your life?' APPROVED, we'll pay your rent, your utilities, give you $1000 a month cash, $600 in food stamps AND THE BEST PART if you have more kids WE'LL GIVE YOU MORE AND PAY FOR ALL THE MEDICAL BILLS FOR ALL OF YOUR KIDS AND YOU!!!!!!

    How about not 'offending' and 'discriminating' against THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY PAY FOR PUBLIC ASSISTANCE!!!!!!!!! Who cares if we offend those who have made it a CAREER???????? I don't!!!! It's our tax dollars and they should have to jump through as many hoops as we see fit. You want your benny's you pee clean. Plain and simple.

    STRESS: The confusion created when one's mind overrides the body's basic desire to choke the living daylights out of some idiot who desperately deserves it.

The only people that should be interested in my pee is the doctor, and the chick i'm giving the golden shower to......anyone else would be just weird.
    1 more thing, interesting that guy from Fort Mac was all self righteous about dope smokin', since 90% of those guys are crackheads and methfreaks. Lots of drugs up there.
    Advance, don't you drive a company vehicle? If you do and get in an accident BELIEVE ME someone else will be VERY interested in YOUR PEE and blood and B.A.C.. There is NOTHING facist or Nazistic about it. It's called 'Smart Business'.

    Why do those who do 'NOTHING' get away with a double standard than the rest of us.

    Not to mention THE JOB CREATION that would happen if it WAS MANDATORY for those on P.A. to be drug tested once a week. Christ, that alone could get us out of this 'recession'.
    Hey upstate - Sounds like advance wants some justice for locators - Canadian & American. advance is the type who would support Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, the ex-leader and creep of the Liberal Party of Canada.
