The short answer is that if an employers are allowed to prohibit the use of drugs, even if it is legal and even if you have a prescription for it. It does not matter if the drug is legalized or not. For instance, if the employer says that you cannot drink alcohol as a part of your job (e.g. if you are a truck driver) and they do a random breath test and find out you’ve been drinking, you could still be denied employment although alcohol is perfectly legal to consume. In your case, even if you have a MM card, it still won’t prohibit the employer to deny you employment based on a positive drug test. I’m very sorry and hopefully you won’t drop dirty in this situation.
Also, although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied. If you feel I have done so, please rate me 5 stars and let me know if you have any follow up questions. As a side note, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.
