I failed a preemployment drug screen

Customer Question

I failed a preemployment drug screen for marijuana for LPN in Ohio. Will I be turned into BON?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I thought I was clean. Took drug test and failed, positive for marijuana. I am not working there. Will they turn me into Board of Nursing?

No, they wouldn't have a basis to turn you in. If you were a known drug abuser (i.e., someone who spent enough time with you could attest you were habitually under the influence) or another medical provider observed you under the influence on the job, then they'd have the duty to turn you in. Just a positive drug test when you aren't even working there is not enough to substantiate any type of claim against your ability to practice.
