Anyone know if they run drug testings on you (marijuana) prior to being employed?

Probably depends on the institution you get hired at. I was never tested in BC but that doesn't mean it can't happen.

There is an obvious solution to your problem...

i googled it and came up with this! http://www.parl.gc.ca/content/lop/researchpublications/prb0751-e.htm#acanadian

in 2002, the canadian human rights commission’s 1988 policy on alcohol and drug testing was revised to reflect recent jurisprudence. the policy now states that the following types of testing are not acceptable: (1) pre-employment drug or alcohol testing, (2) random drug testing, and (3) random alcohol testing of employees who are in safety-sensitive positions. when an employer can demonstrate the existence of bfor, the following types of testing may be included in a workplace drug and alcohol testing program: (1) random alcohol testing of employees in safety-sensitive positions; (2) drug or alcohol testing for reasonable cause or after an accident; (3) periodic or random testing after disclosure of a current drug or alcohol dependency or abuse problem, if such testing is tailored to individual circumstances and forms part of a broader program of monitoring and support; and (4) mandatory disclosure of present or past drug or alcohol dependency or abuse for employees holding safety-sensitive positions, within certain limits and in concert with accommodation measures.
