Our Opinion

drug testing in labWith Doctors now able to prescribe cannabis or CBD for many illnesses, workers can claim they need the drug to function.

When record-low unemployment rates collide with record high drug taking in the western world workforce, businesses can find themselves in a dangerous situation and that hasn't stopped companies testing more and more. Across the pond in U.S, the fact that 43 states now have some sort of legalised cannabis, with more and more states making it legal for recreational use.  With countries all over Europe now proposing making cannabis legal, especially more so for medical uses,  this could greatly effect companies ability to work out how to navigate corporate drug testing and how to draft up employees contracts.

In America, 15 million people are thought to have a substance abuse issue, including alcohol, pain medication and cannabis . While no industry is immune to drug use, the retail, transport and construction industry are more prone than others.

A recent Drug Testing Index (DTI) shows workforce drug testing for a positive  result is at its highest rate in a decade. Not surprisingly, some states in America such as Nevada that have recently made recreational cannabis use legal have seen 20% increase in the number of employees who test positive for cannabis.  A tight job market is making it hard for companies to fill roles, especially non friendly millennials roles like truck driving. We are seeing more and more companies dropping cannabis from their drug test screening. It is a calculated, or you could say a not-so-calculated, risk. Some consider it the new “don’t ask, don’t tell” issue of our time. Some may compare it to alcohol but this is really not a good comparison. Alcohol may have had medical uses 100 years ago but that is not the case now. With Doctors now able to prescribe cannabis or CBD for many illnesses, workers can claim they need the drug to function. This grey area is a big problem and it maybe only a matter of time before cannabis becomes FDA approved in the US or CE approved in the EU and the real legal grey areas begin.
