  •  Wrong. Please do not confuse detecting THC (0+ / 0-)

    with detecting THC metabolites which is what most drug tests do.  It is possible to test for the presence of THC itself which only stays in the body for a very short period of time.

    You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.

    •  Test for impairment. (0+ / 0-)

      Have some sort of test that tests either coordination or judgment and cognition.

      I've always found it silly that some companies test for MJ, yet do not test for health problems that might impair a worker.

      In my mind if the person is impaired due to drugs or alcohol, emotional problems, or some undiagnosed illness that that should be the red line rather than some metabolites that do not impair.

    •  Excuse me, but it amounts to the same thing (0+ / 0-)

      and you're still screwed unless the standard tests are changed.
