Thank your for asking Just Answer, give me a moment to review your question.
In California, the government 's position is that both medical marijuana and hemp product ingestion are not reasonable medical explanations for a positive laboratory drug test result.
What does that mean?
I would take that to mean that a positive drug test will effect your license just like if you took an illegal drug.
You would take that to mean?
The primary case on whether an employer can prevent you from using marijuana if you have a medical marijuana card is from California. It went all the way to the Supreme Court and the court said that an employer could prevent the use of marijuana even if the employee has a medical card.
Here is the case: Alberto R. Gonzales, Attorney General, et al. v. Angel McClary Raich, et al., No. 03-1454 (decided June 6, 2005, 125 S.Ct. 2195), in most states with medical marijuana laws, an employer may safely refuse to accept medical marijuana as a reasonable medical explanation for a positive drug test result.
