Sociologist Dr Jarrod Gilbert has described workplace drug testing which detects after-hours use of cannabis as little more than a test of character rather than an indicator of impairment.

Writing in the NZ Herald, he cites NZ Drug Foundation chief Ross Bell, who he reports is of the view that employers have fallen for the "hoax" that drug tests make workplaces safe.
