If you tested positive for THC and that was a valid test, that may be sufficient cause to deny your unemployment benefits. However, it sounds like maybe there was something suspect about the drug test. Accordingly, if benefits are denied, you may want to reach out to an attorney that handles unemployment claims to assist you with this.
