Because marijuana is not yet treated like other legal drugs, workers need to be constantly worried about whether or not they will be denied employment because they didn’t ‘pass’ a marijuana drug test. This is especially true if you use marijuana for its medicinal purposes. Medical marijuana patients will need to have a prescription that is recognized in the eyes of the law.
Urine drug test
If urine is found to test positive for the presence of a drug, a medical review officer is called in who will decide if a justifiable medical reason exists for the results of the test. If the worker has their prescription for that drug, such as codeine or oxycodone, it is excused and allowed by the company and the law. This normal procedure does not generally apply to medical marijuana, unfortunately.
