New Cannabis Policy Takes Effect October 1st

Earlier this year, the Michigan Civil Service Commission unanimously agreed to remove marijuana from the pre-employment drug testing protocols. The new policy takes effect on October 1, and impacts about two-thirds of the jobs within the state government. Pre-employment marijuana testing will still be required for about 14,000 of the 48,000 state jobs that are deemed sensitive, such as jobs that require a commercial driver’s license, jobs in law enforcement or corrections, jobs providing healthcare services, and jobs that involve handling hazardous materials.
