[LISTEN] Don't think of going to work high on a joint...it can be tested
If you think the recent Con Court ruling on dagga use means you're free to go to work high, think again!
The Constitutional Court ruling on the legalisation of dagga has left employers confused on whether they're able to test staff for cannabis.
Azania Mosaka spoke to Labour Law Specialist Puke Maserumule and Howard Dembovsky from Justice Project SA about the laws relating to cannabis testing.
It's much more difficult to test for cannabis than it is to test for alcohol.Puke Maserumule, Labour Law Specialist at Maserumule Incorporated
Testing for cannabis can be done via urine sample or via hair molecule sample. The only problem is that the presence of THC in a urine sample can be present for up to 6 weeks after a person has ingested it.Howard Dembovsky, Justice Project SA
