agree  humbird: Yes. that's what it is. As drug abuse is so widespread in today's America, employers take caution via this mode to protect themselve against potential workplace problems, such as absenteeism due to drug uses.

agree  Charlie Bavington: I like your neutral tone. All of your "agreers" seem to think that this is so employers can avoid hiring those who take drugs. Clearly, however, for a job in the media or music, it is so they can avoid hiring those who don't :-)
