Our intent is to make Delaware drug screening compliance as simple as possible you don’t have to be a constitutional law scholar to conduct workplace drug testing in Delaware.
Delaware is a “Open” state, which means there are no state statutes, regulations, or known court decisions that would limit your choices for implementing a drug or alcohol testing program. However, be aware of the state’s medical marijuana law as it provides certain restrictions on the employer.
This overview is to introduce you to the nature and history of Delaware’s workplace drug testing rules and to provide a basic understanding of the compliance issues you may face when testing in this state.
This state has no known statutes restricting workplace drug or alcohol testing. But, in 2011 the state Legislature passed SB 17, which allows qualified individuals to use marijuana for medical purposes. That law is now codified at 78 Del. Laws, c. 23, §1.
This law significantly restricts employer discipline of employees who are qualified medical marijuana users because of their status as a qualified user or if they test positive for marijuana.
Q1. Can I do a random testing for my employees in Delaware? Yes:

Medical Use: The use of marijuana for medical purposes has been authorized in Delaware, and discipline for a positive test for medical marijuana patients is limited. Employer may not discriminate based on status as medical marijuana user. A positive test alone is not proof of being under the influence.
Personal Use: There is no effort to date to pass legislation permitting personal use of marijuana.
