Some states have legalized recreational marijuana. Should employers be allowed to test employees for marijuana when the worker is not stoned at work?

Should employers be allowed to test for alcohol even when the employee is not drunk at work?

With alcohol, there are ways to test if one is "under the influence" - because after a relatively short period of time, it's out of the bloodstream.

As far as I know, right now, there is no consistent, viable way to test for "under the influence" of THC, because it stays in your body for weeks.

And "Dorito-Fingers" is not a reliable test.




But I suppose employers can come out with a "No Pot" policy, just as hospitals have come out with a "No Tobacco" policy:

effective January 1, 2012, UH will no longer hire external candidates who use any form of tobacco products. External candidates will be required to confirm their non-tobacco use when expressing interest for a job opportunity. Those selected as a new hire will be tested for all tobacco use as part of the pre-employment lab screening process. Candidates who fail the tobacco screening may re-apply after 90 days.
I'm sure there is some grandfather clause for current employees, and incentives to quit.
Where I work, tobacco users pay more for their health insurance. But I haven't heard of anyone being tested for tobacco .. and I digress...

Ohio recently legalized Hemp - low THC cannabis.
But since there is no quick easy way to test the level of THC in leafy green substances, police departments are starting to declare they are no charging for "Possession".

... Because I always carry my hemp rolled in little tubes of paper.


Besides, it now seems CBD is all the craze.
