More Businesses Dropping Pot from Pre-Employment Drug Tests
Thankfully, testing for pot in Colorado work sites has declined over the past two years. Some companies, seven percent, have totally dropped marijuana from their pre-employment tests and three percent have removed it from all drug tests.
It’s about time, considering that recreational weed in Colorado was approved by voters in 2012 and medical marijuana in 2000.
A survey done by the Mountain States Employers Council (MSEC) in December marked a shift from 2014, when when one-in-five employers reported stringent drug-testing policies, reported the Denver Post, which pointed out that these results don’t necessarily mean businesses are happy about their employees smoking weed.
“It’s because we have low unemployment,” said Curtis Graves, an attorney with MSEC. “They may prefer a zero-tolerance approach. From a business perspective, they just can’t afford to be as choosy now.”
Gee, Colorado…what are you complaining about?
What strain are you smoking on today?
New York Lawmakers Pushing for Recreational Pot in 2017
New York lawmakers are hoping that the recent legalization of marijuana in Massachusetts and Maine will inspire the state’s legislative forces to take similar action in the 2017 session.
Two bills—A3506 and S3040—were recently introduced in the New York General Assembly and in the Senate aimed at creating a system that would allow marijuana to be taxed and regulated across the state in a manner similar to beer. The proposals would enact the “Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act,” which would give adults 18 and older the freedom to possess up to two ounces of weed and cultivate as many as six plants at home for personal use. It would also give way to the creation of a fully legal cannabis industry whereby adults 21 and older could purchase cannabis products at retail dispensaries statewide.
Grapefruit is a high-yielding sativa with fast flowering times. A sweet taste and a nice tropical high. The guys from DNA Genetics are Southern California natives who migrated to realize their calling as breeders in the relative weed freedom of Amsterdam. But they didn't leave all that great Cali genetics behind. California Grapefruit combines three of the Golden State's favorite indicas: Northern Lights, Skunk #1 and Afghani.
