Concerns over employee (or other person) safety, for one possibility.
Furthermore, it should be noted that employers cannot legally require any applicant to submit to a drug test.
A city can't require all job applicants to be tested for narcotics and must instead show why drug use in a particular job would be dangerous, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.
Court ruling limits employment drug testing - SFGate

Good news. If a felon can be governor of Florida then a pothead should be able to get welfare.

How will you know they're drunk while voting. Require breathalyzer testing of voters at the polls?
