Abandoning the life savers

This is disgusting. Melissa at D'Alliance finds that traumatized firefighters from 9/11 who turned to drugs to self-medicate their ensuing pain from the memories have been fired after getting caught in random drug tests.

As Melissa says, nobody wants a drugged out fireman showing up to work but there's no proof they consume while on the job and besides wouldn't it be more productive to offer rehab services and perhaps a short suspension to remedy any problems their use might be causing?
