I am working for BIGLAW this summer, and I REQUIRED THE FIRM to submit to a drug test.

If you smoke marijuana you don't deserve a Biglaw SA gig.

HTH.

I'm inclined to think there are much greater examples of unprofessionalism, especially within the arena of these big, powerful, and prestigious jobs, than smoking pot.

That's not to justify it, but I think you need to put it in perspective, my friend.

We aren't talking about other examples of 'unprofessionalism'.

I'm commenting on one issue.

And I think you are trying to justify it or you wouldn't bring in other scenarios to downplay my comment.

It's either acceptable to use illegal drugs and work for a firm or it's not. I'm saying it is not. Nothing more.

perhaps its unacceptable to invade  ones privacy in such a way. I can see alot of people who would enter a profession such as law refuse to submit to a drug test.

True it might decrease your privacy, but no one is making you work for that firm.

I have a friend who has a friend who interviewed and got a SA position, but failed a drug screening.  Now he can't get a job ANYWHERE. 

Best bet: Quit smoking pot for a month.

but that is more of a fallacy since the higher potentcy of pot you are smoking means the longer it lingers in your system.  What I would do...

Eat only foods with a high level of antioxidants.
Drink only water.
Do not eat fast food, or anything with high fat.

fuuhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhck! i just got blazed a couple of days ago based on the 80% chance from the poll, and i start in like two weeks. this "friend" of a "friend" sounds less reliable than the 8/10 anonymous people who said that they don't.

i want these nazi-facist firms outed! come on you two people who voted "yes," name names. come on chrisclaybo call your friend's friend. let's find out which firms we should be boycotting.
