Recommended Posts

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Nevada has become the first state to ban pre-employment marijuana tests.

AB 132, signed by Governor Steve Sisolak, makes it unlawful for any Nevada employer to fail or refuse to hire someone if they test positive for marijuana.

There are some exceptions. 

Those trying to become firefighters or EMT's cannot test positive, as well as those applying for jobs that require someone to operate a motor vehicle or jobs with the federal government.

It also allows employees who are required to submit a screening test within the first 30 days of being hired the chance to take a second test, at the expense of the employee. 

The law goes into effect January 2020.

Great for them. A step in the right direction. Wish my state would do this but we dont even have medical yet. They just allowed CBD.   I dont give a fuck if its legal or not to posses or grow because thats not going to change for me. My biggest issue like lots of folks is workplace testing.

I drove under a CDL for a long time, and used a whizzer-like contraption to beat those DOT piss tests all the time. There are actually a lot of laws in place that keep them from feeling you up, or watching. You lose those rights if someone observed you consuming drugs, or failed already. But if you don’t have someone watching, it is easy peasy. It can be as simple as filling a capped test-tube and attaching a boot warmer. I’ve had to sit up to four hours waiting to pee once, and temps were still cool.

Where I am we are subject to “random” testing on site clinic and you have to empty pockets before testing. If caught with substitute substance instant loss of job. It’s a large place with several thousand folks. My last random was several years back. Rumors are they only test the minimum number they have to and would like to look the other way but insurance and liability makes them do it. I have not heard of anyone failing for a while and I personally know quite a few in my department that partake regularly. I also suspect they exclude some job categories because qualified people are hard to find. Like mine, plus I wonder if they “age out” employees from testing based on age or length of service. I still self test and usually can pass. It’s getting harder to not smoke daily due to stress of this place!!! My last piss test at work was very borderline but the nurse just smiled, tossed it in the trash and smiled and said good to go.
