I meant for MEDICAL and about it just being in your system. Obviously if someone is wrecking forklifts, or visibly intoxicated on the job, there should be problems (problems keeping your job) expected, anywhere.
But even if it is legal for recreational purposes, that's not surprising, to not have job protection. When I was in Medical Billing, I had to stop smoking cigarettes because the hospital I was going for externship, wouldn't hire smokers and tested for nicotine. They say it's for a healthier workplace, blah, blah. The truth is, they get big discounts on their insurance packages they can offer to employees for having smoke free environments and bigger discounts for smokER free environments.
I dont believe in controling what people put into their bodies outside of work, and if it were up to me, I'd drug test them with a coordination/reflex-time test instead. If they can pass that, they aren't a danger, due to it.
It's all about the money they save, really.
