Anyone know what most employers’ policies are on weed these days? I found out I have to do a hair follicle drug test for my new job, and I have taken a few small (5mg) edibles in the past 90 days. Not a regular user and it’s legalized in my state (decriminalized and legal for medical in the employer’s state). Any thoughts? I’m stressed about it.
