Why bother testing for medical cannabis?

I completely understand why some jobs drug test their employees and other jobs don’t.

It all comes down to the company who has to pay for the drug screening process, and how valuable the results are to them.

For example, the people who hire stock clerks at WalMart probably don’t need to bother drug screening, because it doesn’t matter if they are high or not. It’s fine for a pothead to stock shelves. However, if the job is a school bus driver, or a nurse that has access to drug lockers, it’s important to have the employees tested. I smoke medical cannabis every single day, which means I am basically disqualified from ever being a bus driver or a nurse! I wonder if they do drug tests at cannabis dispensaries, and fire anyone that doesn’t have THC in their bloodstream? That’s a joke, of course. In the past I have lost several jobs for testing positive for medical cannabis, so I am thankful that fewer employers are conducting these random screenings. Medical cannabis has never once interfered with my job, or my family life, so I see no moral or ethical reason to quit. I have felt this way my entire adult life, so I’m glad the government is finally being reasonable and relaxing the restrictions on recreational and medical cannabis products. One day society will stop testing for medical cannabis permanently. After all, we don’t perform drug tests for alcohol or tobacco, so why do we bother screening for medical cannabis, which is just as legal as tobacco?
