Medical field/Marijuana

I have a girlfriend that is thinking of going to school for something in the medical field she is wondering how often they get tested for marijuana?  She is a high strung person and she does smoke it once in awhile to take the stress off her shoulders.

  • Depends on the facility and what type of "something in the medical field"

  • Both those would likely be based on the facility then, with limited/no patient contact.

    I get randomly tested 3-4 times a year but I provide direct care

  • I take it medicinal marijuana isn't legal where you are? If not, then I wouldn't chance it.

  • Usually drug tests are completely random and conducted at least 2-3 times a year. She will really have no warning about when she will get tested.

  • I work in a pharmacy and we're tested before we're hired and have random testing. It's a pharmacy so they need to know their employees are drug free.
