do you think pre-employment drug testing is an invasion of privacy?

I think it is, in my opinion. It seems that if someone were on drugs to the point where it would affect their job, they should be able to see that in the interview and not hire the person. In my opinion, I think there is no reason for it unless you start to show signs that something is wrong, job performance starts to slack, or you do something wrong. I just don't see the reason for it, maybe I'm wrong. What is your opinion?

No, I think this is a normal thing.

You bring up an interesting point. Nowadays so many of our rights have been taken away or severely infringed upon that it's become normal.

I do not think this is an invasion of privacy. The company is investing time and resources to hire the person for the job. They want to make sure the person is qualified. I think it is within their reason to do so.
