Recent studies have shown that after a period of steady decline, the incidence of positive results in workplace drug testing is on the rise. According to Quest Diagnostics' Drug Testing Index, 2013 saw the first increase in the percentage of positive drug test results conducted by companies on their employees since 2003. The most common positive results are for marijuana and amphetamines. The rise in positive results is typically attributed to several factors. Use of recreational drugs, especially marijuana, seems to be on the rise as issues concerning the legality of cannabis use continue to be debated. Another factor is that more employers are adopting testing programs to help cut down on drug use by employees and avoid the increased costs associated with employing drug abusers. The increase in testing allows for more accurate data concerning the percentage of workers who are actually using drugs. ("Workforce Drug Test Positivity Rate Increases..." Madison, N.J.
