Confirm BioSciences US Drug Testing 2020: Trends and Predictions

Confirm BioSciences, a comprehensive screening tools and solutions provider has released a report titled US Drug Testing 2020: Trends and Predictions.

For those who don’t want to read the whole report, what are the key findings?

The study is based on interviewing 1600 HR and hiring managers on topics such as:

  • Accuracy of product labelling
  • Usage patterns
  • Drug use legislation

One of the main conclusions is that employers need flexibility when it comes to drug testing.

To further complicate matters, drug laws are always changing, and there have been several instances of inaccurate product labelling that may put employees at risk for positive THC test results.

The study would also like to highlight the results of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) study, which found one in five CBD-infused products containing traces of THC.

It is one of the possible reasons that could lead to someone testing positive for drugs without knowing.

Employers are unsure how to proceed with this in states where recreational marijuana is legal.

The states where medical marijuana use is legal, but recreational use is not are a source of confusion.

The study also found that in Colorado, one of the earliest legal marijuana law adopters, 30% of young adults claim to have used marijuana in the last 30 days.

Because of this, some employers have stopped testing for drugs.
