The reason your employer can make you take a drug test is because they are not the government and they are not bound by the Fourth Amendment. Don't like being drug tested by your employer? Form a union and put it in the union contract that your employer cannot drug test you without probable cause. To simplify this, the government cannot search your person (drug testing is considered searching your person) without probable cause. Being poor is not probable cause.

And clearly those people are in the vast, tiny minority.

Oh? And how would you find that one person to administer the drug test to? Lucky guesses? Russian roulette?
These teeth are razor sharp...
