Amazon Will No Longer Test Employees For Cannabis Use


As recreational marijuana usage becomes increasingly legal around the country many employers are deciding to make changes to their employee policies surrounding cannabis. One of the biggest employers Amazon just announced that they will no longer test employees for cannabis. Amazon, the second-largest private retailer behind Walmart said that they will still test workers for other drugs and conduct "impairment checks" on the job. Some jobs will also still require a cannabis test in line with Department of Transportation regulations.
