9780140104004: Steal This Urine Test: Fighting Drug Hysteria in America

From America's most visible, most devoted rebel--ammunition galore to combat an insidious, insulting threat to the rights of all Americans. A satirical, yet serious, response to mandatory drug testing in the workplace. Black-and-white cartoons.

From Publishers Weekly:

Former Yippie Hoffman (Steal this Book, Square Dancing in the Ice Age) examines drug testing in political, social and legal contexts while shattering myths about drug use and abuse. Instead of funding rehabilitation programs, Hoffman contends, the government mainly engages in "propaganda ploys" that neither help nor educate. Discussing misconceptions about urine testing and apparent violations of constitutional rights, he provides up-to-date information on the reliability of testing procedures and points out how lab errors are made. He challenges "bladder cops," takes readers on a field trip through a urinanalysis lab and instructs in how to beat the test. While Hoffman holds attention throughout with puns ("mind over bladder"), anecdotes and satirical writing ("golden showers come your way"), it is the extensive, in-depth research and a barrage of facts and figures that make this the definitive guide to the current drug-testing environment.

From Library Journal:

One's initial reaction may be to dismiss Hoffman's latest j'accuse as more establishment-bashing by the Peck's Bad Boy of the left. But beyond the arch title and cutesy phrases (e.g., "bladder spies"), the book raises legitimateand disturbingquestions about the rush to drug testing in the United States. Specifically, Hoffman provides concrete and sometimes detailed documentation to support his contention that such testing is scientifically unreliable and constitutionally indefensible. All but the smallest libraries should acquire this book, which offers a thoughtful dissenting opinion on a subject of a great importance. Kenneth F. Kister, Pinellas Park P.L., Fla.
