Recreational Marijuana – Just Because It’s Legal, That Doesn’t Mean It Can’t Get You Fired

Tim Thoelecke Jr., president of InOut Labs in Illinois, said most companies that do drugtests continue to test for the presence of marijuana. In fact, he said, “Employers are more concerned with marijuana. Most want to make sure to include it in their testing, especially if their employees have safety-sensitive roles. Many companies that did not test before are confused and a little afraid, and a lot are implementing testing.”

Labs can determine various levels of marijuana, but Thoelecke said most corporate policies consider “any detectable amount” of marijuana a positive result.
