For many years, both employers and employees expected that a clean drug test was a prerequisite for getting hired. Usually, the drug test would include a list of illegal drugs, which typically included THC, the key psychoactive compound found in cannabis. However, times have changed in terms of the social and legal perspectives relating to cannabis.
