New York City councilman wants companies to stop testing for marijuana

NEW YORK CITY, New York – A New York City councilman has drafted legislation that would prohibit testing for marijuana by companies as a requirement for employment.

Jumanne Williams is sponsoring the legislation.

It would ban companies in the city from testing for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

There are exceptions to the rule. Those exceptions would be for safety and security sensitive jobs, including emergency responders and drivers.

The bill is in committee.
