  • Nevada bans employers from refusing to hire those who fail marijuana tests

    Starting in 2020, Nevada employers cannot refuse to hire a job applicant for failing a marijuana screening test, making it the first state to pass such a law.

    "It is unlawful for any employer in this State to fail or refuse to hire a prospective employee because the prospective employee submitted to a screening test and the results of the screening test indicate the presence of marijuana," states the law, signed by Gov. Steve Sisolak on June 5.
    There are some exceptions. The law does not apply to firefighters, EMTs, employees who operate a motor vehicle, or those who, in the determination of the employer, could adversely affect others' safety.

    Seems a stupidly limited law. Either weed is the same as alcohol or it isn't -- people in all those professions openly drink.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

      You're surprised government isn't logically consistent?

        We changed our policy internally at work to allow for the hiring of people who tested positive for marijuana. We probably wouldn't hire them anyway, but it's no longer an absolute bar to employment.

          It's a dumb law;

            I'm waiting for a ban on drug tests.

              That won't happen until all other drugs are made legal.
