Drug Use in the Workplace Has Increased Dramatically

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

There are now more American workers showing up to their job with drugs in their system than there have been in over a decade.

New Jersey-based Quest Diagnostics, a company that provides human resource departments all over the nation with drug screening services, revealed earlier this week that there are now seeing more employees test positive for illegal substances, such as cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine, than they have in the past 12 years.

Unfortunately, it seems that legal marijuana could be putting some of these workers in the unemployment line.

The report shows that Colorado and Washington, the country’s first two states to establish a system that allows adults to buy weed in a manner similar to beer, have experienced significant increases in workers testing positive for THC metabolites.

What Do Legalized Marijuana Laws Mean for HR Professionals?

Category: Tokers | Posted on Fri, June, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

As more states legalize cannabis with either medical or adult-use/recreational laws, the topic of cannabis use in the workplace is increasingly more timely.  What do legalized marijuana laws mean for HR professionals?  We recently posted an article about this that was specific to mental health professionals, but let’s explore what this means for the bigger picture of employers.

According to The Rochester Business Journal:

Some states, including Arizona and Delaware, prohibit an employer from terminating an employee due to a positive drug test for marijuana. Laws in Arizona, Delaware and New York allow employers to enforce workplace policies prohibiting employees from using drugs on the job. While not addressed in all state statutes, it seems very unlikely these laws would be interpreted to allow an employee to work while impaired by marijuana. But determining whether an employee is impaired on the job can be a challenge, as marijuana is metabolized differently than alcohol and current drug tests are unable to determine whether use occurred in prior hours or days.

Court: Neighbors Can Sue Pot Growers for Stinky Smells

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

DENVER (AP) — A pot farm’s neighbor can sue them for smells and other nuisances that could harm their property values, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling revives a lawsuit between a Colorado horse farm and a neighboring marijuana-growing warehouse.

The horse farm’s owners, the Reillys, sued in 2015, claiming that the pot-growing warehouse would diminish their land’s value by emitting “noxious odors” and attracting unsavory visitors. A federal district court dismissed the Reillys’ claim, and the pot warehouse opened in 2016.

The horse farm owners appealed, and a three-judge appeals panel agreed Wednesday that their claims should be heard. But the judges said the Reillys can’t sue Colorado to force the state to enforce federal drug law and not allow the pot warehouse in the first place.
