Do Companies Still Conduct Marijuana Testing?

Now that marijuana has been legalized in several states, and even more are becoming more lenient in their weed laws, questions are being raised about how society and the business world will react. Will companies still test for marijuana use, knowing that job candidates could have recently traveled to a state with legalized weed?

Here's what you need to know:

  • Private companies will likely still test new candidates for marijuana use. Many companies receive a discount on workers' compensation and other benefits by continuing to test. Also, since the passing of new marijuana laws around the country, certain groups have stepped up their efforts to maintain drug-free work environments, pressuring private employers too continue strict testing standards.
  • Government employers and employers receiving federal funding must test. Weed is still illegal under federal law, so most employers receiving any federal funding will be required to screen for drug use.
  • If you are applying for a job that involves transportation or being behind the wheel, you will likely be tested.

You should also know that many states still have strict marijuana possession laws. If you are even caught with weed on your person, you could be in legal trouble. This could result in a loss of your drivers' license or even jail time.

The outcome of your case will likely come down to the legal representation you have on your side, negotiating with prosecutors and the courts to achieve the best possible outcome with the minimal possible penalties.
