U.S. Sees Decline in Companies Drug Testing Employees for Marijuana

Job Testing

According to new data by Simply Hired, more U.S. businesses are abandoning cannabis drug testing or cutting back on their testing frequency.

55% of hiring managers surveyed stated that their business doesn’t test current employees for off-the-clock marijuana consumption, NORML reported.

As for hiring managers who work for a business that does test for marijuana, 40% stated that “they do it less often than in the past.”

Businesses with 1,000 or more employees were found to be much more likely to conduct pre-employment testing for marijuana than smaller businesses.

Almost 70% of hiring managers claimed their company would be “okay” with an employee using marijuana while off-the-clock “as long as the company remains unaware of it.”

Of the employees surveyed, 75% believe that testing positive for cannabis shouldn’t lead to an automatic termination of employment.
