9. No Drugged Employees or Students
A ban on people coming to work or school with marijuana in their systems.

Why is this needed?
Employers worry about drugged employees endangering the safety of others, slowing productivity, increasing absenteeism, drug workplace accidents, and many other issues for which alcohol and drugs are responsible. Almost everyone worries about an educational system that is not preparing American students to compete in the 21st century.

This provision will prohibit anyone from going to work or school with marijuana in their systems, as detected by tests of oral fluids or urine. The cost of drug testing to enforce this provision and to mandate those who fail the test to be automatically assessed and treated will come from the industry-mandated fund described in Provision 5.
