Don't take that question the wrong way, people! I ain't no drug addict or something like that, you know? I've never gotten in trouble with the police or anything, but I just want to get a heads up on this, please! Again, I'm cleaner (and always will be) than a shiny pearl under the deep blue sea. I got nothing to hide, I'm just wanting some advice. Do they poke needles into you when Walmart do drug tests? If so, should I tell them that I shake even at a glimpse of a needle (don't judge me for that, people! Yeah, I tremble just at the sight of a needle, so what? Got a problem with that? If so, comment, because I'd love to hear what you'd have to say)?

Job Case you just sorted through all of the crazy comments and didn't remove this post? So what a fabulous idea that was, so let's just set up more and more of the amateur doctors that will show back up on here and post the insane comments? Seriously?

https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/laws/LAB/201-D From my understanding of the new labor laws in NY state(Oct 21st, 2021), an employer can include cannabis on a drug test panel but the employer CANNOT use a positive cannabis test result as a hiring decision unless it is a federal or DOT position(with a few exceptions far and in between). This is because cannabis is a legal consumable product in NY, just like alcohol. Upon further research, these new labor laws for NYS even protect positions that require licenses, certifications, or degrees. With that being said, I don't understand how it is legal to be turned down for an assistant store manager position solely based on a positive cannabis result. The drug testing facility called to inform me of the positive cannabis result and asked if there was a medical Marijuana card and I explained that there wasn't one because it has been legal for over a year and a half and the laws now protect employees. The facility said the results would be sent with the next 2 hours. Immediately after speaking to the testing facility, I called the hiring manager(the store manager who was new to his position and the company (he was also an old coworker)), and informed him of the situation and results. He was not even aware they tested for cannabis and said he'd look into it. He called many people up the chain. He called back and informed me that the position was no longer being offered due to the positive cannabis result. He also said that the company would most likely be changing its policy in the near future. The background check had already come back and the only thing they were waiting on was the drug test results. About 2.5 hours later(very shortly after the time that the testing facility said the employer would receive the results) a contract was sent out after they received the drug test results(everything was negative except for cannabis). When I received the contract in my email, I reached out to the hiring manager explaining they sent me the contract and maybe HR was already aware of the laws put in place pertaining to cannabis use outside of the workplace. He reached out to HR and told me the same thing as before, the position is no longer being offered due to the positive cannabis result. At this point I wrote a long email to the HR department asking for an explanation as to why their company was an exception to this law. I have yet to hear anything back. Does anyone have any advice on how to go about this situation? Thank you in advance! P.S. negative comments need not waste their time.

So I got hired for this company and I was required to do a hair follicle drug test where they cut my hair. So I took the test a week ago Monday and today they call me and say the company that did my test doesn't show they have my results or that I came in??? WTH?? Good thin I got a copy of what I signed. So I sent a copy to the lady who called me. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Am I going to have to do this again? I dont want to cut my hair again! If so can I request a pee test instead? Do I have rights??

I accepted an offer for a job and a week before I was supposed to start.. I was told the person I was replacing failed a drug test on her new job, and my offer was rescinded. I was so angry!! But I know something better is on the horizon.. and I wouldn’t want to work somewhere that will employ someone who failed a drug test!

Am I going to get the drug test and background check results at the event or will I have to wait to know if I’ll get hired? I don’t have any issues with either but I have a couple of other interviews set up early next week that may want me to start right away if I get job offers. Amazon has better benefits and advancement opportunities so I definitely prefer to work there.

13.5 yrs , weekends and holidays, fired on the spot for taking six,1.50 per box under supervision approval. Then they are bringing someone back who failed drug test after hitting a pole. They fired him but because he is union and I was salary, he has job back. I am fifty and it is nothing but discremnation out there. No wonder people say the heck with it and just live off the government!

So I get a job offer from Spectrum. So excited to go through the process. Had to go online fill out all the paperwork all is well. Then I get sent out to do drug testing. I have no worries because I do not do drugs. However when the drug test results came back, I became very concerned and extremely clueless of what was happening. They claim that my drug test came back positive for cocaine.

Now here's my situation several months I went to the emergency room they said I have a bone spur in my right hip. They injected pain medicine there at the hospital at the time and then gave me prescription of pain medicine to go home with. This drug test was done this past week and I have stopped taking my medicine several weeks back. My question is how did they get cocaine for my drug test when I've never even had cocaine in my life. Now I was told that doctors use cocaine for certain procedures in which I have not undergo any other procedures that he named. Me being very honest I'm explaining with a sense of hope of retesting. They claim I have to pay $150 if I'm going to contest the results. However they're going to use the same specimen. Has anyone else ever had a problem with this situation befor? Because I know I do not do drugs and I really feel like I'm being railroaded. I really feel like there is a falsified test because I also do not go to clubs I do not go out to social parties. I'm more of a homebody that takes care of my family. Please help

Well I was hired as a maitainence guy and mechanic 3 months last week I got in an argument with the boss son because I would not do something he wanted me to. I had been work almost 2 months without a day off so on Saturday I didn't go but I talked to my boss and agreed that Sunday I would go in. Sunday morning he tries to drug test me says you are one of my drivers i refuse he gets mad and tells me you on drugs I say not I'm refusing because I on drugs I just never sign any policy where you can test. So he fires me . I tell him that in order for him to test anyone u have to hame them sign a policy when u hire them the u have to give a written warning saying they will be tested. What should I do.
