By now several US state have legalized marijuana for medicinal use, and 10 states have legalized it for recreational use. Alaska, California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, Maine Massachusetts. Washington & Washington DC, the nation’s capital. Despite the massively decriminalized state of marijuana, scores of companies both public and private test new hopeful employees for recent marijuana use. Even worse, employees who have worked at a company for years may be subject to a random drug test and could possibly face harsh consequences as a result of using cannabis, even in states where it’s decriminalized for recreational use.

Known Drug Tests in the US

Can Marijuana Improve Mental Health?

mental health

So far, research into medical marijuana, though limited in scale, points to marijuana as a viable option for pain management. However, marijuana may also provide positive results in the treatment of mental health conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, and depression. Unfortunately, because of marijuana’s classification as a Schedule I drug and the stigma surrounding its usage, research about marijuana’s effects on mental health is limited.

 

To further complicate matters, results from the available studies have been mixed. Various studies over decades have shown both negative and positive associations with marijuana usage as well as no association at all. This is partly due to the highly individualized nature of mental health conditions, including a person’s temperament, history of mental health issues, and other factors that make it extremely difficult to gather conclusive data.

Why drug tests for cannabis users are outdated:

The absurdity of US laws allows authorities to prohibit individuals from their rights if they fail to pass a drug test due to THC in their system. This ridiculous phenomenon is continuing despite the fact that over 10 laws have allowed recreational and medicinal use of cannabis. Job opportunities, food stamp access, social care and even a longstanding career can all be thwarted if you have even the slightest amount of THC in your system from cannabis. Cannabis users are the main target for drug tests, and they’re hard pressed to find a way to pass a drug test because THC and THC-COOH can stay in a person’s system for up to 75 days. Even a medical card might not save you.

Cannabis users have shared a lot of ways and tricks to pass a drug tests throughout the years, but most of them have been myths that don’t really do anything. While there are a few staple rules that can lower your chances of failing a drug test such as physical …
