The History of Workplace Drug Testing in the U.S.

It’s no mystery that the 1960s were the heyday for drug experimentation. By the 1970s, the US government responded by creating offices to coordinate programs geared toward prevention education, rehabilitation, treatment, training and research. Programs were even implemented to test military personnel going to and returning from war. By the 1980s, standards that were set by the government made their way to the public sector.


In “Historical Overview of Workplace Drug Testing Programs,” the author outlines the details of an emerging no-tolerance drug policy in our workforce.
