What difference does it make how many panels it has?

What kills me is that the really high paying jobs in my city do not drug test, and the low paying jobs all drug test. When I say " a low paying job" I mean some place like Home Depot. The pizzerias here pay way more than home depot and no pizza joint in Buffalo drug tests and there must be 200 pizza places around here. If you work for a TV station making 70K a year you don't get tested but if you try and work for Home Depot they want to test you. It just doesn't make any sense at all.
I think the real problem with drug testing is forcing someone with AIDs or depression or epilepsy to reveal their condition or risk failing a drug test. It's just not right and it's the same as some ransaking through your house to make sure they approve of how you live before they hire you. Actually, that will be next if we don't stop this non-sense.

So I found this site because I was trying to show my friend that he probably won't get the job,because he has been and has to be on Xanax for his anxiety. I told him if you were to of told the lab, you would have the job and not worry, cause you can show proof. My question here to this site is, Will HD let this guy go work there
While on this ?

me in New York, New York said: they are really not looking for THC. and they are looking for levels of THC. Someone I met once who worked in the human resources dept of a large financial firm said; they go by numbers. like let's say 1-10. 10 being Greatful Dead, and one being The Carpenters. if you come below 5, could be the poppy seed bagel you had for breakfast. alot of things will simulate THC poppy seeds are one.

THC comes from Marijuana NOT poppy seeds. Poppy seeds come from Poppies which produce opiates.

Actually I don't think poppy seeds simulate thc I'm pritty sure it's opiates like the poppy plant... And Home Depot pay decent if rather work someplace that cares about supporting a drug free environment considering there's heavy machinery being operated and other possibly dangerous aspects the job entails just saying

If he is worried about it he should just call the hiring person at Home Depot and ask about it.
They are very nice people and they will work with your friend ...I work there and I love it
