and thought-provoking discussion of the contemporary erosion of civil liberties.
No one can read this fine book without being infuriated and alarmed, challenged
and—ultimately—enlightened. A real contribution to democratic

Drug testing has become the norm in many workplaces. In order to get a job,
potential employees are required to provide their urine for testing. Pissing
on Demand examines this phenomenon along with the resulting rise of the
anti-drug testing movement, or the "detox industry," that works to beat these
tests. Strategies include over-the-counter products like "body flushers" that
sound innocent but are really designed to mask the presence of illegal drugs to
kits advertised in pro-drug publications like High Times that make no
bones about their real purpose. The first exposé of the detox industry in all
its manifestations, this book is required reading for anyone concerned with
social control, privacy, and workers' rights.
