Co it's been legal for a few years and whizz quizzes are part of our pre-employemt physical along with background checks. We are taking another look at testing for weed since alot of company's in the medical industry we do work for have stopped. We would still drug test for other non legal drugs.If I drug tested for weed I probably would have any employees.
Just for clarification I don't condone smoking weed at work
I agree. The problem with THC is it stays in your system for I believe 30 days.Co it's been legal for a few years and whizz quizzes are part of our pre-employemt physical along with background checks.

If we did random testing weed probably see aboot 30-40% of our employees let go from managment to janitors.
My stance is what you do outside of work is your bussiness and if it spills into work it's now my bussiness same as alcohol is handled.
I had a few guys that would get hammered every night and sometimes they would come in sweating booze. Couple times I told them to go to their vehicle to sleep it oof / sweat it oot and I always took their keys.I agree. The problem with THC is it stays in your system for I believe 30 days.
You could probably do a blood test for alcohol the morning after someone tied one on and they'd be over the legal limit.
Drink Saturday night or even Sunday afternoon you're good on Monday.
Smoke some weed Saturday night, you're skrewed.
I guess testing for weed for a new employee makes a little sense. If you're out job hunting and you can't hold off until you get said job, you may have other problems.
He blew a .12 driving his kids to school? Guess it really is always 5 o'clock somewhere.Had one get pulled over on the way to work , he drops his kid oof at day care on his way in. He blew .12, got hauled oof and his kid was taken by child services until his folks came in from Fla. Kids mom was oot of the picture and couldn't be found.
At least he didn't have scoliosis...This was probably 10 yrs ago now… Hired a new guy in the spring, he came in and interviewed and was recently let out of prison and really pleaded with me that he needed this job and so on and so forth. Don’t remember what the prison time was for but it wasn’t drug related. At least that’s not what he wrote on the application. I always tried to give people a second chance within reason. Anyway, he’s one of these guys that’s full of s**t. Lots of stories that most you’re just not sure really happened or not. Not a landscaper for sure, and not working out real well. It’s fine, happened every spring with 50% of the new hires, as you’re picking from bottom of the labor market. So one morning he comes in and tells me he has a Dr.’s appointment at noon. I’m like ok…he asks if he can just take one of the trucks to the Dr. because it’s close to where we had been working the past few days(big car dealership we worked at for a few weeks every spring). I reluctantly said fine because it’s gonna screw me up if he drives his own car that morning. So when he comes back from the Dr. (after like 90 min!!)he parks the truck in a bizarre spot almost wedged between new cars. I’m like WTF are you doing?? He gets out of the truck and is dazed and slow responding and slow talking. Turns out he drove my company truck to the Methadone Clinic! Well that was it for me…just too much all in one day. I’m so glad I don’t have to deal with that kind of stuff anymore.
Sorry, thought you saw this from yesterday:Haha true. Had to Google that one.
