I just left contracting to be a wage slave, and have never (in over 10
years of contracting) been asked for a drug test. Of course, I had a
strong tendency to work for smaller companies and startups, not
megalithic companies with offices in all major cities plus the sea
bottom. Perhaps companies have to reach a critical mass of middle
management (with too much time to fill) before they require drug tests?

My reaction, of course, would depend on how close to automobile
repossession I was... in most circumstances short of that, I'd likely
decline the test.
