GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) – The passage of Amendment 64 has left many employers wondering where they stand with drug testing their employees.
To help businesses understand the legalities, Mountain State Employers Council has developed a guideline for employers to help them develop policies about Amendment 64, something local Chamber of Commerce leaders say will be helpful for employers.
"We have a lot of employers who have a lot of questions about this because it's not as clear cut as it with being under the influence of alcohol,” said Diane Schwenke, executive director of the chamber. “We know that if we were to have a certain level in your bloodstream of alcohol, you're under the influence. We don't have that same matrix to use with marijuana."
