    Here's the flip side of this and maybe this will help understand why I find all of this stupid.
    Had an employee, different company, who gave his notice for other employment. As a company and as the HR/ payroll manager this resignation letter was a good thing since the employee was on the verge of termination anyway. Said employee was a minority and even in a right to work state you know that a legit firing may result in a lawsuit.
    So, turns out that said employee gave his notice based on a letter of employment that was contigent upon passing a drug test.
    Said employee failed the drug test, no suprise. Person then filed for unemployment.
    As the last employer we got the unemployment claim notice which I fought.
    Guess what. While I won the unemployment claim from a company standpoint, the jerk got to collect.
    The company won hands down against being charged for the claim and having it impact the corporate rate. However the jerk was allowed to collect unemployment benefits.

    Really,
    So it is Sat night and you can't get any sleep due to a cough from a cold and the over the counter stuff is crap. Let's see take some liquid gold that is in the house or get zero sleep and trigger ashsma attacks.
    Personally I would take the liquid gold.
    Hey, I sympathize with being sick. BUT, its not your prescription. Can you take it? Yeah. But if you have to pass the pee test and can't because you took something that was NOT prescribed to you, don't whine and cry about it. Its illegal.

    I just dumped my son's oxycodone down the sink. I COULD have used it with the present condition of my arm. But I didn't. Its not my prescription and if I hurt enough to need it, I best be shuffling into the DR.

    Its kept back on the perscription shelf with the other Rx drugs but it is available without the Rx. Cheratussin is what it is called. Not sure how all pharmacies deal with it. I go to an independant, locally owned pharmacy. The chain pharmacies may have differant rules they have to follow.

    I asked a RiteAid pharmacist about that one time, and they could not sell it, although yes, it is legal.

    Call me paranoid, but the way drug laws and perceptions are today, I would just as soon have a script to back me up if I ever got tested. My wife and I are both physicians, but when it comes to narcs of any type, we won't even write for each other, to completely avoid any possibility of ill-perceptions. (and codeine is the only sched3 I ever, and rarely use)

    This had nothing to do with me. I simply had to cut the final paycheck.
    Poor guy actually had no idea he would have to take a drug test. The company he was working for did not have random drug testing.
    It was a corp buyout and all employees found out that day and took the drug test the same day.
