It seems drug use is common among city workers in East St. Louis.  Five workers are off the payrolls after surprise drug tests determined either cocaine or marijuana in their systems.  Another worker was fired for refusing to take the test.  

A total of 127 city workers were tested after one of the city's detectives was busted for allegedly being a big-time drug dealer.  That detective resigned last week and is still in federal custody.
