Legislature OKs drug test bill for new pot law

 .

A drug testing bill proposed as a response to Arizona voters’ legalization of medical marijuana is headed to Gov. Jan Brewer.

The House completed legislative action on the bill Tuesday evening.

The bill would let employers take action against employees who are believed to be impaired at work due to drug use, whether legal or illegal.

The bill is backed by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

It provides employers with a legal shield from lawsuits if they act in good faith against employees who show signs of impairment.
