Maryland has removed a pre-employment drug testing requirement for cannabis businesses, leaving it up to individual dispensaries and growers to decide whether to test employees for illegal drugs. The change was one of several approved by the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission at its Sept. 22 meeting with the goal of alleviating red tape for small business owners. The removal of the drug testing requirement has been praised by some business owners, who believe it will open the door for more job candidates to enter the industry.
