Though it's totally awesome to see much of the map filled in compared to what it looked like 10 years ago, it's still mind boggling to think in one place you can grow legally but in a 15 minute drive away be put in prison for it. I wish we could be like Canada and legalize as a nation.

Thumbs up

tipping point was reached long ago. biggest problem confronting cannabis users now is drug testing on/for a job. over 90% of Fortune 500 companies tested less than 10 years ago. last stats i saw were culled from a national meeting of personnel folks and they said it was now down below 65% and dropping. they cannot find the talent they need to keep the doors open, fuck expanding. military is getting more lax as well. we need a national citizen rights bill like Canada has, which protects their citizens from discriminatory bullshit like pissing in a bottle. there, there is a VERY restricted number of jobs which subject you to testing - pilots , train engineers, etc.

any large company with large amounts of liability in canada tend to test as it lowers insurance i think. they test for booze for pre employement so imagine they will for cannabis and likely will be some interesting cases if reject people for cannabinoids as the level thing is not understood.

That being said things are straighting out as far as cannabis now that its legalish, cops can smoke as time limit thing is just silly. As long as not impaired at work no reason to test.

I'm not sure what you are talking about here. My guess is that your impressions may have been formed by reading a few posts that speak of exceptional circumstances, or perhaps by a media article that seemed to jibe with what you understand of drug testing in the American employment context, and so perhaps you thought that's the way it is in Canada, too?

(If I have misunderstood your comments, I apologize)

There are no pre-employment drug tests in that vast majority of Canada -- indeed, it is illegal to do so. It is also unlawful to do so in most of Canada's provinces during employment, too.

Drug testing in the employment context in Canada is relatively rare.

The only provinces where there is any significant drug-testing is Saskatchewan and Alberta - especially in the oil and gas sector. Alberta is Canada's Texas, and is the most right-wing ideological province in the country As a result, its human rights legislation is weak. But Alberta is still a relatively small component in Canada's overall employment map. Saskatchewan's? Even smaller.

Drug-testing, as it is known in the USA's educational and employment context. is almost unknown outside of Alberta and Saskatchewan and some Federally regulated industries. Employment law is a provincial matter in Canada and the human rights acts in most provinces have banned it outright (with some narrow exceptions). There is no drug testing in any of Canada's schools for any reason.

Hell, you cannot even turn down an offer of employment for a criminal record in most of Canada (again, some narrow exceptions). Indeed, there is no way for an employer to even perform a criminal record check, even if they wanted to.

Illinois and Minnesota both elected governors who support legalization so we could see a few more states legalizing it through the legislative process.

my current & previous employers have a policy of not testing for mj. i'm in co. i think this will become more commonplace, especially with unemployment as low as it is.
