It's possible that random drug tests at work are more palatable now that professional athletes are consistently tested. Maybe you feel a little better about being checked after finding out that Lance Armstrong has been hounded for years and years after his multiple tour wins.
Like Armstrong, who was formally charged after all those years, an operator in the reactor control room of the nuclear plant in Limerick, Roger Devlin, was found to be under the influence of alcohol after a random drug test in July, according to the local Journal Record News Service. The test, given by Exelon Nuclear, was followed by a review of Devlin's activities during the day, which found no errors. Still, he was promptly removed from his duties, and a request was sent to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for his operator's license to be revoked.
So can your boss make you take an on-the-job drug test as well?
