Specifically, Graves relayed ATA’s support for hair testing prospective drivers for drug use as part of their employment screening. According to Graves, “hair testing is an effective tool for identifying drug user s due to its long detection window and because it is difficult for donors to beat the test,” adding that, “many Fortune 500 companies like General Motors, Kraft Foods, Shell Oil, and British Petroleum (BP) use hair testing to identify drug users before they enter their operations.”
