Even people who live in legal cannabis states like Colorado or California may have to take a drug test as a condition of employment or during the course of the job. Three industries in particular, transportation, construction, and sports require their employees to be tested for drugs, including random screenings, for-cause testing, and following workplace accidents. But those three sectors are not alone. The Society for Human Resource Management said that 84 percent of private employers conduct pre-employment testing. For cannabis consumers – even those who consume even rarely or occasionally – failing a drug test could mean loss of employment, financial resources and other benefits like health insurance and retirement plans.

Some states, like Maine and Nevada, have voted to protect cannabis consumers with laws that prevent employers from discriminating against off-the-job marijuana consumption – though they still retain the right to fire employers for consuming cannabis onsite or being under the influence at work. But until other legal states start passing bills more like Maine and Nevada’s, cannabis consumers could still face having to take a drug test. Don’t worry though, PotGuide has your back with some of the best insider tips, tricks and information to help you pass that cannabis drug test!
