Drug testing is useless except as a money making scheme. Peter 
Bensinger, former head of the Drug Enforcement Administration, and 
former drug czars Robert L. Dupont and Carlton Turner shamelessly 
promoted drug testing as the solution to drug problems while they 
held office. Bensinger, Dupont & Associates is now the world's 
largest drug testing company. This group formed by these big drug 
warriors is reaping a fortune on the drug testing laws they wrote.

The only beneficiaries of drug testing are the makers of the tests. 
Tests are notoriously unreliable, often giving false positives.

Performance and productivity are the best tests for employers to 
insure workplace safety and increase their bottom line.
