Drug Testing Access System
Tag Archives: Amendment
Since Colorado voted to legalize recreational use of marijuana, there have been concerns about contradictions that now exist between state and federal laws — including a contentious debate about workplace regulation. One Denver CEO told us that legal pot will make it hard for him to hire people, because he has to maintain a drug-free environment. But an A64 backer tells us that many employers are misguided — and that businesses don’t have to do drug testing.
Last week Jeffrey Popiel, president and CEO of a Denver-based company called Geotech, which manufactures and sells environmental equipment, told us that his biggest concern with the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol measure is that he’ll have to turn away candidates for jobs, because even though state law says they can now smoke, it doesn’t change policies at his company.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Administration’s Out of Service criteriais a document every patrol officer and driver should be intimately familiar with. Of particular note is the section on Fatigue. It currently states “When so fatigued that the driver of a commercial motor vehicle should not continue the trip based on reasonable, articulable suspicion… Declare the driver out-of service until no longer fatigued.”
Until April 1st, that used to read “…based on reasonable doubt.” This legal hurdle of “beyond a reasonable doubt” is the foundation for our courts in America. That one little phrase is the difference between a free society of the people, for the people, and a police state where no evidence is needed to prove guilt.
