How strict should marijuana testing be for Muskegon County workers? Board opinions differ
MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – Marijuana that currently is a gray area in Muskegon County policy is expected to again be a banned substance for those wanting to work for the county, but commissioners aren’t entirely comfortable with testing requirements. The county board is expected to agree to the insertion of the word “federally” in its drug-free workplace policy, so that it refers to “federally illegal” drugs. Without the addition of “federally,” marijuana would be a permitted substance since Michigan voters legalized its use in 2018.mlive.com
