Thanks to Mamadearest for this one! Poll is down on the right.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. (multiple votes using multiple internetz devices are allowed!) And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)

I would get drug tested if I am injured on the job.

Colorado just legalized pot, so there will be some intersting lawsuits I believe. Company also tests new hires.

been that way for me since 1997. Promoting drug addiction during a “recession” marked by chronically high unemployment probably isn’t a wise thing. drugs tend to make people not want to go to work.

Was already overturned in Fla, I believe.

There are some real problems with the proposal including false positives and no affordable test for some commonly abused substances anyway.
