Amazon recruits marijuana users amid delivery driver shortage

Amazon is urging its delivery partners to no longer screen applicants for marijuana use, according to Bloomberg.

Amazon says that the new policy can potentially boost applicants by 400%, though they don’t provide a source for that statistic. Additionally, they say that screening for marijuana use diminishes the number of prospective workers by 30%.

Some delivery partners are hesitant to comply with the 420-friendly request due to safety and liability concerns.

“If one of my drivers crashes and kills someone and tests positive for marijuana, that’s my problem, not Amazon’s,” an anonymous delivery partner said.

Amazon, which has been lobbying for federal legalization, announced in June that it was no longer screening applicants for marijuana. However, that doesn’t mean you’re allowed to toke up before a shift.

“If a delivery associate is impaired at work and tests positive post-accident or due to reasonable suspicion, that person would no longer be permitted to perform services for Amazon,” a spokeswoman said.
