Do Companies in States with Legal Weed Drug Test?

by The True Negative

Here at The True Negative we’ve been closely following the impact of recreational marijuana legalization on employment drug testing practices. Most recently, we published a guide to the status of marijuana legalization by state in our January 2020 Weed Legalization State of Affairs. Additionally, we covered the implication of marijuana legalization for both Illinois and Nevada, as well a the general legal complexities of employment drug testing.

In this blog post, we look at the 11 states where recreational marijuana is legal and whether companies in these states are still performing employment drug tests. Based on what our users have reported, they still are. Which companies specifically are drug testing? See below. As you will see, our sample is small for some states. Click on each state to find all of the companies in our database for that state that drug test. Remember, for each company page, re-filter by state in order to see the drug testing info specific to the state of interest.
