City to change drug test policies

Drug tests for all new city employees are a thing of the past. The Coeur d’Alene City Council decided this week that across-the-board drug screening is no longer required for prospective new hires, but certain positions will still require pre-screening. Although the city has implemented changes in how it addresses the issue daily, Human Resources Director Melissa Tosi told The Press little has been done to change the policy itself since it was first written and approved in 1995. "So there was language in there that was really outdated and needed to be updated," Tosi said/Keith Cousins, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Did you take a drug test for your current job?
