How To Pass A Marijuana Drug Test
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.
Several companies claim they have products that make you pass a 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.
Since marijuana is not recognized according to US federal law, even states that allow the use of medical marijuana will generally have companies that don’t allow the use of marijuana. Occasionally states give employers the opportunity to grant exceptions for the allowance of medical marijuana users with legal prescriptions, but there are only a few employers who accept that offer.Back to top Back to top Back to top
