Information regarding the scheduling of drugs

scheduling of drugs
Depending on the nature of your business, rapid tests and drug screens can be an effective way to ensure insurance compliance and maintain a safe work-place for all of your staff, employees, and workers. There are various types of screens available, and the costs do vary. Some implement mouth swabs, while dip-sticks for urinalysis remains a popular employer choice.

Drugs are categorized by their schedule, and you may only be looking for a particular category of drugs when screening, or you may opt to uncover any substances present in the bloodstream of your employee. The legal ramifications are based on the schedule of the drug and how it is categorized by law enforcement. For this reason, it might be helpful to have a break-down of the categories currently:
Schedule 1 includes marijuana, heroin, LSD, and ecstasy
Schedule 2 includes cocaine, meth, opiates, and stimulants such as Ritalyn and Adderall
Schedule 3 includes Ketamine, steroids, Tylenol with Codeine, and testosterone
Schedule 4 includes benzodiazepines such as valium and xanax, and sleeping meds such as Ambien
Schedule 5 includes many over the counter drugs such as Robitussum AC and Lyrica

This may serve as a guide when formulating repercussions for employees failing a drug screen. Keep in mind that insurance coverage and costs may be contingent on maintaining a drug-free work environment.
