Nevada bans employers from refusing to hire those who fail marijuana tests

By  | 

(KWQC) – Employers in Nevada will not be allowed to discriminate against workers for marijuana use starting in January.

CNN reports employers will still be allowed to administer pre-employment screenings for other drugs, but a positive result for cannabis can't be used to not hire someone.

There will, however, be exceptions for certain lines of work such as firefighters, EMTs, and jobs that require driving a vehicle.

Nevada is the only state thus far to prohibit employers from requiring applicants to pass a marijuana test.
