On September 15, 1986 the then acting president Ronald Reagan signed into effect Executive Order 12564, which made drug abstinence both on and off duty a condition of federal employment. Shortly thereafter, in 1988 Congress passed the Drug Free Workplace Act, which stated that any company seeking a federal contract needed to screen their employees. The states followed suit not long after the action by the US Congress. A few years later in 1991 Congress acted again by requiring drug test; including random testing, for any employee employed in a safety-sensitive position such as, airline pilots, truck drivers, train conductors, etc. Meanwhile, the drug testing craze spread into numerous other sectors like schools, community service avenues, criminal justice, etc. The widest spread was in the private workplace sector, especially as a condition of employment. In the first decade since Reagan’s order, drug testing was up 277 percent.
