In order to get that paycheck, in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (with which I have no problem).

I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their bottom - doing drugs while I work.
Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?
I guess we could call the program "Urine or you're out!"
