  • Good question. Wonder how many in Congress and in our current administration would fail if given a test right now?

    I'm not sure what you are advocating? I don't think anyone should be drug tested, outside those in positions like bus drivers, heavy equipment operators... The presumption of guilt bothers me a great deal.
