Yeah, anyone who believes that nobody in their workplace smokes Marijuana just because they drug test is hopelessly naive. Not only is it easy, as anyone who has friends who smoke can attest, I once had a college friend's dealer end up working in my office. And he was still running his side business

Well if they checked for benzos how would they know it wasn't prescribed to you? It's not an illegal drug. I have a prescription for Xanax for my anxiety to take "as needed". I haven't had any for almost a year, but if I was facing something really nerve wracking I might have one (.25, the smallest one).

And please don't take your friend's pills. If you feel anxious or something then ask your doctor about something for yourself and see what they recommend. When I first had a .25 Xanax I fell asleep for most of the day. Imagine if that happened on your interview day, eh?

Don't worry. If they see you have a benzo in your system you can say it's a scrip. But really, it's not their business.
