This paper discusses the use of drugs in the workplace with particular enphasis on the practice of drug testing, outlining arguments, both for and against. We conclude that drug testing tends to destroy the employee‐employer relationship, recommending strongly not to engage in the practice. Finally, alternatives to drug testing are outlined, culminating in a call to place greater emphasis on performance testing.
