Finding good employees is challenging enough. Letting somebody go because they couldn’t pass a piss test makes the hiring process even harder. Failed tests reached an all-time high in 2017 according to data from Quest Diagnostics Inc. For that reason, employers are becoming more lenient on testing as more people partake in state-legalized cannabis. Among the big name companies no longer testing for marijuana are: AutoNation Inc., the largest U.S. auto dealer, clothing retailers the Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy, Twitter, Whole Foods, Starbucks and Chipotle Mexican Grill (which does the majority of its hiring online). Facebook also does not appear to have a drug testing policy in place — surprising considering the company’s stance against marijuana related posts and advertisement on their social media platform.
