Can my employer still drug test me?
In short, yes. While there are some employment protections for those with valid medical marijuana cards, there are still prohibitions against work impairment, as well as possession and or use at the workplace. For recreational users, Virginia remains an at-will employment state. Employers can still drug test and even terminate employment for marijuana use. While work policies may become more lenient over time in light of news laws, for example dropping marijuana from the panel of drugs tested, there is no guarantee.
