Massachusetts has authorized the personal adult use and the medical use of marijuana. While employers are still permitted to enforce workplace policies and are not required to accommodate marijuana use while at work; the state’s medical marijuana law does limit employer actions. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against a qualified person due to their status as a medical marijuana patient.
US Drug Test Centers offers testing for employers and individuals throughout the state of Massachusetts. You can purchase testing online, or give us a call and speak with one of our knowledgeable staff for help finding the right test. We provide hair follicle testing, EtG tests, instant POCT testing and urine testing, including 5-panel drug tests and 10-panel drug tests.

Random drug testing should be limited to safety-sensitive workers or other circumstances where an employer can show a legitimate business necessity. The Massachusetts Supreme Court has issued a ruling on random drug testing in private employment. In Webster v. Motorola, the Court found that the validity of an employer's policy of random drug testing had to be weighed on a case-by-case basis.
Typically employers order a five-panel or ten-panel urine drug test. Hair testing is also available, typically a five-panel drug test. Many times employers will also order drug testing to include OxyContin and other drugs.

While Massachusetts has legalized medical marijuana, there is nothing in the law that requires employers to accommodate marijuana use at the workplace. Regarding medical marijuana laws, the general consensus in the courts and the legal commentaries is that these laws do not require employers to modify their employment practices, drug-free workplace policies, drug testing policies, or accommodation policies.
