Want an exciting job in the growing field of DRUG TESTING???
Listen to this!
Today California passed a law to ban drug testing for Marijuana use. That's one small step for white America, but NO STEP AT ALL for blacks.
California should outlaw all drug testing, unless it is searching for IMPAIRMENT.
Drug testing today is not searching for impairment. Drug testing today is an extrajudicial fishing expedition to find mere traces of substances of which politicians disapprove. Employees can lose jobs, and potential employees can fail to get jobs, NOT because they're impaired, but merely because lab techs have found traces of demonized substances in their system (the kinds of substances that have inspired entire religions, as the soma medicine inspired the Vedic-Hindu religion, the Mayans venerated magic mushrooms and the Inca considered coca to be divine). Drug testing is an extrajudicial fishing expedition in the most intimate of all places: one's own body.
Big business today is actually drug-testing Americans as a kind of stealth contractor for the US Government, checking to see whether Americans have been naughty or nice as those terms are hypocritically defined by Christian Science conservatives (that is, politicians who are motivated by the Christian Science belief that drugs may be called bad without regard for how, why or when they are used).
Not only is this extrajudicial punishment, but it is cruel and unusual punishment to deny a person the right to get a job in America. We do not even punish murderers in that way.
And yet the worker thus barred has no right to appeal, for the Kafkaesque reason that they have never actually been charged with a crime. They have just been "written off" as a money earner by a wink-and-a-nod from the anonymous powers that be.
Wake up, Californians: Outlaw all drug testing, unless it is searching only for demonstrable impairment, and not for mere traces of substances that have been demonized by pharacologically clueless politicians.
Yeah. They drive to their drug tests in pickup trucks with license plates that read "Don't tread on me." Yeah, right. "Don't tread on me: Just tell me how and how much I'm allowed to think and feel in this life. And please let me know what plants I can access."
We don't need people to get "clean." We need people to start living a fulfilling life. The two things are different.
