About 30 people and I got fired. They performed a surprise drug test at my work. We all had marijuana in our system. 

It has been a huge shock because it happened so fast. They tested us on friday and we were fired monday. 4 out of the 6 managers were fired. The higher ups (above the managers) were not tested but I know some of them would fail

I dont think they realized just how many people they would lose. My coworker who is still there said that they have no clue what to do and are freaking out. 

The last time they did a drug test was 5 years ago and they didnt count marijuana against you so I cant help but laugh at them now they are in over their heads.  I am in Denver...there is a dispensary down the road from here and many of them knew that the employees had smoked/ate edibles. 

I am contemplating whether or not I should even look for a new job. I was thinking about traveling instead maybe getting a small RV but Idk yet. 


Update!: I got a call asking me to come back in to talk about things. I saw a few other people there also. They wanted to let me know that they wanted me to come back to work for them. They want to put me on a probabation period and then drug test me in 30 days and the I will be off. 

I told them I had to think about it. I really dont like the way they did things and I did like the idea of traveling so IDK what to do

How are you going to afford "traveling" with no income?

Good luck :)

I don't smoke MJ, especially if it means jeopardizing my job, but I don't condemn others. Hope you find happiness.

Companies can still have policies against it

why are employers so concerned with what people do on their free time?? Do they screen for alcohol as well?  If they don't , they are hypocritical assholes.
