According the the Health and Safety Magazine— Even as some state drug laws recently have been revised to legalize marijuana, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is reminding officials that the federal government’s Drug-Free Workplace Program has not changed.
On November 9, 2020, a one-paragraph memo was issued stating that the Drug-Free Workplace Program will “continue to test for Schedule I and Schedule II controlled substances at the established cut-off levels listed in the Mandatory Guidelines.”
These Schedule I drugs include cannabis, heroin, LSD, ecstasy and peyote. Schedule II drugs include Vicodin, cocaine, methamphetamine, methadone, OxyContin, fentanyl, Adderall and Ritalin.
Arizona, Montana, New Jersey and South Dakota voters approved the legalization of recreational marijuana during the November elections whereas, Mississippi and South Dakota legalized marijuana for medical use.
