    Hola amigos~

    I finally got my medical card today!! My only question is, what happens when I apply for a job that requires a drug test? Do I get an exception for marijuana for having the card or will the testing facility still say that I came up positive? I'm hoping I won't have to get clean but if that's what it comes down to I will.

    Depends on the state.
    Run a search for the MMJ laws for your state.

    You can be denied employment regardless of your card.

    Pre-employment drug tests should be clean, no matter what the status of your MMJ.

    Life isn't fair, but being smart will help you get your goals.

    It is completely ridiculous that you could be denied a job for having MJ in your system if a doctor prescribed it and it's legal in your state. That would be like getting in an accident and requiring pain killers, but having to stop using them to get a job. Stupid.

    It may be ridiculous but it's the case in most medical marijuana states. BTW, doctors can't "prescribe" medical marijuana, they can only "recommend" it.

    Airline pilots aren't allowed to fly if they're on strong painkillers. I wouldn't want to get on an airliner where the pilot had just taken several bong hits. It all depends on the job.
