Illinois state troopers no longer face zero tolerance marijuana testing

Per Rachel Doze of Newschannel20, the Illinois state legislature has decided to override a governors veto of a bill that would stop the automatic firing of illinois state troopers if they tested positive for marijuana. Now the law reads that state troopers may be fired if they test positive, not they shall be. The wording change may be small but it’s important. This news comes in the wake of the election of a governor in Pritzker who has vowed to make marijuana legal recreationally. There’s still some kinks that need to be worked out when it comes to how public service employees consume marijuana and the possible liability problems of being high on the job.
