Where, as in this case, public safety was not genuinely jeopardized, the Fourth Amendment precluded a suspicionless search, no matter how conveniently arranged. Yet federal and state employees can still be legally drug tested, even for jobs that have no safety risk. It’s extremely strange (rules for thee not for me) that this decision was only extended to protect politicians.
