Legalized But Still Not Acceptable To Some


In December 2012, the state of Washington legalized the use of marijuana for adults that are for people above 21 years of age. This was a very crucial decision taken in this regard and was upheld by quite a few of the people around. However, this decision was not taken in a great way by some companies who were not interested in budging from their stance of maintaining drug free employees.

In such circumstances, with the legalization of the drug more people are into using the pot. Hence, more number of people are being rejected or fired from their jobs by the companies who are not interested in keeping employees using marijuana. With the medical tests that are done on the employees prior to their joining a firm, positively tested job applicants are rejected on most instances. This has led to the job consultancy firms having to put up more efforts to find the right candidates for the job.

This development and the increase in the medical tests has kind of been a boon in disguise for the medical testing firms. With more tests per day, their revenues are increasing with no doubt.

With such a background, there are certain firms as well like the Altitude digital who are not interested in drawing a line amongst its employees on the basis of the use of the drug. The young CEO of this company believes that the pot is indeed the secret of the creativity of his workforce! Therefore, the use of the drug is neither being encouraged nor do they discourage it.
