For my position, Advanced Medical Support Assistant, there was no drug test, just a pre employment physical and fingerprinting. And the background check/personal reference checks. In the job posting it specifically states(majority of positions) whether a drug test is required...Then there's possible designated and/random testing for any position if it's warranted.

After receiving a tentative offer, the following week I did the physical and fingerprinting. No drug test. A week later got the final job offer. Will be starting in less than two weeks from that offer date of Nov 29th.

I have worked for the VA for 6 years and the only drug screen I have done was as a new hire. As an RN I am subject to random drug screens, but have never been asked to provide one. Your job title may or may not require random drug screens.
