PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – Some of Maine’s largest employers no longer test job applicants to see if they have used marijuana or if they do, a positive test no longer precludes a qualified candidate from getting a job.
Rather than marijuana use, many Maine employers are now focusing on making sure employees are not high while on the job, something that isn’t always easy.
Some safety-sensitive positions such as jobs that require a commercial driver’s license or the use of a firearm, still require testing.
