People could just not smoke weed. That'd solve things.

weed isn't the problem its the misconceptions people have about weed that is the problem.

Or we could legalize weed. That'd solve things too.

While I disagree with bully that poeple shouldn't have to not do something their whole lives to 'solve' a forced hair drug test, I see what he is saying (regarding urine tests).

People can't quit a habit for long enough to test and get a job to the point they need to buy drinks or 'trick the system' is quite pathetic. Weed stays in your system longer thant any drug and it's only 30-40 days...people should have the will for that, it's not difficult. That's just weed though, if we do harder drugs we most likley wouldn't have to quit because they'd be out of our system within days.

Hair tests are something I think only certain people should have to take, like doctors. But even doctors have histories (think coke and studying, happens way more than you think though times are shifting to perscriptions), so do presidents of the USA...hair tests should not be used because what you do your whole life, as oppose to the last 30-40 days should not matter to 99.9% of jobs. Hair tells most people more than they need to know.

I bet some of the most brilliant people in the world who have invented cures to help mankind at one point tried something, what if hair tests would have held them back? Held our president/other presidents back? Most people who can contribute greatly and change the world aren't always perfect angels their whole lives, especially if they are opened minded individuals- and most are.

I didn't say it was a problem. But in unless you live in Washington, Colorado, or have medical weed, the best way to fight "the man" is to not smoke. If it's that important to you, you have a problem. Like me, I'm addicted to caffeine.

Even if weed is legal some companies (mine, for example) won't hire you with a positive result. I think the pre-hire is a urine test. I know for post-accident they use hair (and some clients require this test). I'm not sure what my company is doing in CA but if you have a positive test there, you better have a prescription.

She's flashing her headlights to let you know there's a cop around the corner, but she's driving the speed limit.

I think he misunderstood your comment about drinking tea on the way....as if you were trying to flush your system. Instead of just trying to get enough liquid in you to get a good pee going.

I actually thought that was what you meant the first time I read it.

Your first sentence made it sound like you were trying to avoid a drug test positive result.

[b][color=#3399ff].....or just make sure I could produce a sample. Depends on your frame of reference.[/color][/b]

A reading comprehension course? Was it possible I read it wrong, or do you really believe I read it correctly and just comprehended it wrong? I'd be willing to bet I am more educated than you, the point being stop asuming, start thinking, and stop coming up with bitch comments that take more time to type than "I think you read it wrong" just to sound like a smartass. Looks like more people read it wrong, perhaps you should take a writing class.

The comment, that's a joke to people who have to take tests to go along with my rant, really nothing more to it. I did not know this was a worthless statement/attention/let's chat thread that tried to be more engaging mentioning things like tea multiple times, yet the tea really meant nothing at all along with your post in general. I promise you no one needs this info (still can't figure out what exactly the useful info is), and find it funny you took the time to post a worthless topic but can't repeat any of it's worthlessness for clarification. lol what a joke.

What exactly is the useful info? That some places hair drug test? That we can't fool them? Any moron who can use google or knows a druggy knows this. Or is the useful info on one of these places, a company you're probably not going to name? How does this help?

Meh I was wrong, your game is much more fun.

[b][color="#3399ff"]This is the Lounge. Lots of worthless topics here everyday. And drug testing has been a topic posted many times. So I posted a new experience....and tried to be a bit humorous about it. (You changed the tone with the welfare remark/attack.) I have had several drug tests over the years associated with employment and have never had to worry about passing or modify my behavior temporarily to pass one. [/color][/b]


[b][color="#3399ff"]By the way, your education....care to be more specific?[/color][/b]

I interviewed for CMPD and they asked me if smoked weed. I answered yes but I quit 3-4 years ago. They asked me if I consume alcohol before legal age, I answered yes. 2 weeks later they offered me a position. I wouldn't worry.

I don't know why, but I can't stop laughing at this statement being included into this sentence.
