State of Florida Drug Testing News

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there were 2,798 opioid-related overdose deaths­­­ in Florida in 2016.  These deaths were at an alarming rate of 14.4 deaths per 100,000 persons, which is 1.1% higher than the national rate of 13.3 deaths per 100,000 persons.

The State of Florida has a drug free workplace program which regulated employer drug testing.  Employers in the State of Florida who establish this type of drug free workplace program can qualify for a discount on their workman’s compensation insurance premiums.  It is important for an employer to ensure that their State drug free workplace program complies with Florida Statute 440-102

It is important to understand that although many States have enacted medical marijuana laws, the drug is still a schedule 1 drug and illegal on the Federal level.  It is recommended that employers implement a written drug free workplace policy and have all applicants and employees review along with acknowledgement of receiving the policy. 

A comprehensive Florida Drug free workplace policy should include:

  • Increase productivity
  • Reduce accidents
  • Decrease costs due to insurance claims.
  • All employees will become more aware of the importance of safety in the workplace and will benefit from a safer work environment.
  • When an employee incurs a work-related injury, and refuses to take a drug test when requested, the injured employee may forfeit eligibility for workers’ compensation benefits regardless of the cause of the accident.

An employee who loses a job or is denied employment because of a positive drug/alcohol test, may not qualify for unemployment compensation benefits.  Furthermore, the State of Florida does provide employers who qualify as a drug free workplace with up to a 5% discount on their workman’s compensation insurance premium.  

Marijuana Laws in the State of Florida

The Florida Legislature passed, and Governor Rick Scott signed in 2014, a bill that attempted to exempt a small percentage of individuals with a specific type of medical disorders and their legal representatives from criminal penalties for using and possessing low-THC cannabis that was ordered for the patients by their physicians.

In 2016, the legislature passed a bill intended to improve the law, which would also allow terminally ill patients to access all forms of medical cannabis. This version of the law places very heavy burdens on physicians, arguably forcing them to violate federal law in order to recommend medical marijuana. 

The State of Florida recognizes the following conditions that qualify under this act.

  • ALS
  • Cancer
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Chronic nonmalignant pain*
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • PTSD
  • Seizures
  • Terminal illness (patients diagnosed with no more than 12-months to live)
  • Other debilitating medical conditions comparable to those enumerated

    *Defined as “pain that is either caused by or originates from a qualifying medical condition”

Florida does not recognize marijuana for recreational purposes.

FAQ's About Drug Testing in Florida

Drug detection factors

The length of time that a drug is detectable in the system depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • the type of test
  • dose
  • tolerance
  • potency
  • metabolism
  • the existence of medical conditions

Drug detection times

Please use these figures as a guide only:

  • Alcohol: 3-5 days in urine, 10-12 hours in blood
  • Amphetamines: 1-3 days in urine and around 12 hours in blood
  • Barbiturates: 2-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Benzodiazepines: 3-6 weeks in urine and 2-3 days in blood
  • Cannabis: 7-30 days in urine and up to 2 weeks in blood
  • Cocaine: 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Codeine: 1 day in urine and up to 12 hours in blood
  • Heroin: 3-4 days in urine and up to 12 hours in blood
  • LSD: 1-3 days in urine and up to 2-3 hours in blood
  • MDMA (ecstasy): 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Methamphetamine (crystal meth): 3-6 days in urine and 24 – 72 hours in blood
  • Methadone: 3-4 days in urine and 24-36 hours in blood
  • Morphine: 2-3 days in urine and 6-8 hours in blood

Drug detection in hair

Drugs or their metabolites may be detectable in hair. Hair grows at a rate of approximately 1cm per month so depending on the length of hair it may be possible to determine drug use over recent months.

A urine drug test, also known as a urine drug screen or a UDS, is a painless test. It analyzes your urine for the presence of certain illegal drugs and prescription medications. The urine drug test usually screens for:

  • amphetamines
  • methamphetamines
  • benzodiazepines
  • barbiturates
  • marijuana
  • cocaine
  • PCP
  • methadone
  • opioids (narcotics)

Alcohol can also be included in screening tests, but it’s usually detected through breath tests rather than urine screens.

A urine drug test can help a doctor detect potential substance abuse problems. After a drug test identifies drugs you may be misusing, doctors can help you start a treatment plan. Taking urine drug tests throughout substance abuse treatment helps to ensure that the plan is working and that you’re no longer taking drugs.

Cannabis: 7-30 days in urine and up to 2 weeks in blood.

Cocaine: 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood.

Codeine: 1 day in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.

Heroin:3-4 days in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.

It is broken down and excreted through your urine, making it detectable with urine drug testing for up to five days. Hair drug testing timelines have windows of up to 90 days.

Negative results are usually received within 24 hours; however, a positive screen will require further testing that may take a few days up to one week. If the initial screen is negative, a medical review officer (MRO) will typically contact the employer with the results.

If your urine is being tested only for a urinalysis, you can eat and drink normally before the test. If you‘re having other tests at the same time, you may need to fast for a certain amount of time before the test.
