Client nurse tested positive for THC on a pre-employment drug test. Client claimed she never made use of cannabis and did not know how to explain the positive test screening. When she tested again, the results came back negative. After inquiry, client revealed that she makes use of CBD products, including gummies, tinctures, and teas. Upon request, client provided several recurring negative drug screenings as well as character references, awards, and accolades.
Chapman Law Group’s Florida healthcare licensing defense lawyers provided the Florida Department of Health (DOH) with a response to the allegations of impairment and testing positive for THC. In addition, we presented evidence that CBD can cause THC-positive tests.
Within a few months, the DOH presented to the probable cause panel for review. The panel voted to dismiss the case with a letter of guidance.
