Pot Users Welcome: Amazon Halts Testing Applicants For Cannabis

Amazon will stop testing job seekers for marijuana.

The company, the second-largest private employer in the U.S. behind Walmart, is making the change as more states legalize cannabis or introduce laws banning employers from testing for it.

In March, a New York man sued Amazon, saying the company rescinded his job offer because he tested positive for marijuana even though the city banned employers from testing job applicants in 2020.

Amazon said it will still test workers for other drugs and conduct “impairment checks” on the job.
