Man Recounts Taking Drug Test Knowing He'd Fail to 'Waste' Company's Time

Newsweek: A post has gone viral on Reddit after a man shared why he chose to take a drug test knowing he'd fail it.

Redditor u/tenbeersdeep shared that when searching for employment in 2020, he applied to three jobs each week per the requirements for qualifying for unemployment. He wrote that he applied to Home Depot knowing he wouldn't take the role as he had already accepted another.

He said the company "desperately" wanted to hire him and informed him that as part of the hiring process he'd need to complete a drug test which included cannabis despite the substance's legalization in the Redditor's state.
