Alaska drug testing laws
Oral fluids drug testing is not allowed in Alaska. All testing must take place in a SAMHSA or CAP certified laboratory. Instant or POCT Testing is not allowed. Case law may limit random testing to safety-sensitive employees.
In addition to the federal drug and alcohol testing law, Alaska has established a voluntary drug and alcohol testing program. The Alaska Drug-Free Workplace Program provides voluntary guidelines for employers that institute drug and alcohol testing programs and policies.
Alaska marijuana legalization
Alaska legalized medical marijuana way back in 1998. It wasn’t until November 2014 that the state legalized recreational use for adults over 21 years of age or older. The drug is legal for medicinal and recreational use, but with restrictions. Marijuana cannot be sold or consumed in public.
It’s legal to grow marijuana and to possess up to four ounces in your home or one ounce on your person. This is true for both medical and recreational use.
Regarding marijuana in the workplace:
Alaska Statute 23.30.235 – Cases in Which No Compensation is Payable: proximately caused by intoxication of the injured employee or proximately caused by the employee being under the influence of drugs unless the drugs were taken as prescribed by the employee’s physician.
Alaska Statute. 17.37.040(d) – Nothing in this chapter requires any accommodation of any medical use of marijuana (1)u2002in any place of employment.
The State of Alaska recommends drug testing for marijuana only with a strong written drug free workplace policy. The law does not require an employer to permit or accommodate the use, consumption, possession, transfer, display, transportation, sale, or growing of marijuana in the workplace or to affect the ability of employers to have policies restricting the use of marijuana by employees.
