When seeking new employment, it’s fairly common for job candidates to undergo pre-employment drug screening. Although some states have fully legalized marijuana, it’s crucial to understand the guidelines on using marijuana before, during, or at work. Nearly half of marijuana users in legalized states admit to using cannabis at or before work, and 75% say being high improves their work performance.
Regarding state leniency, Colorado, Washington, Massachusetts, Alaska, and several others are among the best states to use marijuana in. On the other hand; South Dakota and Iowa are among the strictest states. Interestingly enough, many companies don’t test for marijuana, although drug testing limitations do exist.
Along this topic, states are even banning pre-employment drug testing for marijuana; with the exception for first-responder positions such as firefighters, police officers, and medical professionals.
