MARIJUANA POLICY

 

Although possession and use of marijuana for certain medical conditions and recreational use is no longer a crime in the State of Colorado, it remains unacceptable for an SHS employee to be in possession or under the influence of marijuana while s/he is an employee of SHS. Possession and use of marijuana is inconsistent with the hospitals ethics and conduct code, substance use policy and federal law, including the Controlled Substances Act, which considers it a Class I Substance. Any positive result associated with a drug screening test for marijuana, including but not limited to the result of use of marijuana where it is legal or use associated with a medical marijuana card, will be considered a violation of this policy and will result in an employee being subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

 

If you are selected for this position, prior to appointment, you will be subject to a urinalysis to screen for illegal drug use. Please contact us directly if you have any questions about this policy.
