Marijuana Drug Testing & Racial Discrimination
Drug Testing violates every person’s core Privacy and Due Process Rights set forth by the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. These programs have increasingly been used to justify discriminatory policies against people who use Cannabis – especially minorities and people of color. Since the 1980s, when the Reagan administration began to heavily promote workplace drug testing with the same type of fake news used today, it has proliferated from safety sensitive jobs to non-safety sensitive jobs to pre-employment job testing to suspicionless drug testing of public high school students.
Based on our research over the last five years, the average person who smokes cannabis once, regardless of any other factors, has a failure rate of 50% at 11 days. It is also the only substance on the SAMHSA 5 Panel Drug Test that can be detected for several weeks at a time. This is because of the non-polar molecular nature of cannabinoids. The fatty tissues in our bodies attract and soak up these molecules, and then slowly release them over time through metabolization. This, unfortunately, ensures a very long detection window that has been exploited for capital gain.
Without drug testing for cannabis, which doesn’t prove if a user was under the influence at the time of the test, the multi-billion dollar drug testing industry that exists today would collapse. More about the for profit drug testing industry can be found below:
- Example 01 – The American Civil Liberties Union put it bluntly: “Blanket drug testing with no individualized reason for suspicion is unconstitutional”
- Example 02 – Private Prisons, Law Enforcement, and Big Pharma lobby for more restrictive laws, when public support of marijuana legalization is at an all time high
- Example 03 – The drug test industry comes in at #4 when it comes to getting rich off of the “War on Drugs”
- Example 04 – More than half of the US states have legal cannabis laws, yet more and more people are being drug tested (without reason)
- Example 05 – Drug test industry profiteers are targeting high school students, welfare applicants, and the unemployed
- Example 06 – The government only gives contracts to companies that promote warrantless drug testing practices
A Racial Look at “Random”
Racial discrimination and drug testing is running rampant. After normalizing five years of our data with an Ethnic Population Distribution Report and then cross-referencing with labor force characteristics, it has been determined that if you are Black or African-American, then you are two times more likely to be drug tested than a White person. This stands true for pre-employment, random (which should be 1.0 for normal on the chart below), and probationary drug tests. Data suggests that extra scrutiny is also applied to Hispanic and Latino people on probation.
Racial discrimination with drug testing goes hand in hand with the fact that it’s widely known that on average, a Black person is 4-6 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than a White person, even though both groups use marijuana at similar rates.
Emancipate the Spiritual Use of Cannabis
An Entheogen, literally meaning “generating the divine within,” is any psychoactive substance that induces a spiritual experience and is aimed at spiritual development.
After five years of data collection, it has been determined that nearly one out of every four people who consume cannabis in the United States claim that they do so primarily for Spiritual Use. Even more staggering, the data also indicates that more people use cannabis for spiritual purposes than they do for medical.
Cannabis use within religion has been traced back to Spiritual Texts dating 3000 BCE and beyond, and is recognized as an entheogen by Spiritual Leaders throughout history – from the Dalai Lama, Shiva and Buddha, to Jesus and Rastas, and countless others in between. Even today, there is undeniable evidence that within the United States alone, millions of people exercise their right to use cannabis in their spiritual practice everyday.
Cannabis is a sacrament. It brings people closer to the spirit of themselves and others. It is a fountain of health, love, and cures people of illness and depression. It is embraced with our whole heart, individually and as a group; and its Spiritual Use will be Acknowledged and Protected.
Support the Mission
Drug testing programs are invasive, unproven, expensive, and discriminatory. Random drug testing violates everyone’s privacy and can cause irreparable damage to the delicate relationships between teenagers, employees, parents, and employers. With the wave of reformation that is taking place with the acceptance of cannabis, it is time to uproot the discriminatory drug testing practices of the 1980s.
