In honor of marijuana legally being sold here in Colorado my work decided to give everyone a drug test!

For the first time in the many years I have worked there they decided to drug test. At first I thought it was a joke because when marijuana was legalized they held a meeting saying that they did not care what we did in our free time as long as we did not smoke at work, come to work after we smoked, or have any there. 

Well apparently someone changed their mind. I know a large majority of the people have smoked/ used marijuana...they even had special brownies and cookies at the company christmas party. They said they were going to fire everyone who comes up dirty but that would be many of the employees and all the managers but one. So I wonder what will really happen.

What kind of job is it?

I support companies having individual policies about pot use.  It is their term to set, and people who wish to use pot would need to look elsewhere for employment.

However, considering they officially announced it was OK, it seems terrible of them to backtrack the day after!  If I had to rule on that lawsuit, I'd go in favor of the pot users who were basically lied to.

I"m wondering how they can fire you if it's legal...because of company policy?

 LOL.  Cracks me up! 

Our company has a policy against it, just like alcohol and you get fired.  And they've fired people many times.

It being legal doesnt mean anything...they can fire you if you take other legal medications or even over nicotine...also since it is an at will state they can fire you over pretty much anything
