In recent years, marijuana use has become an increasingly prominent concern for Human Resource professionals. Policy makers for organizations are scrambling to understand how individual state legalization in the United States will affect their businesses. This study investigated job applicant perceptions of organizational attractiveness, job pursuit intention, and corporate social responsibility of organizations as potentially affected by marijuana testing policy. Marijuana use was studied as a potential moderator. Results suggest that marijuana use and drug-testing policy both play a role in shaping job applicant perceptions. While perceptions for non-marijuana users were relatively unaffected by drug-testing policy, marijuana user perceptions were affected. An interaction effect of marijuana use and drug-testing policy was found for organizational attractiveness, and main effects of marijuana use and drug-testing policy were found for job pursuit intention. There were no significant results for corporate social responsibility. Additional research on work-related marijuana use and attitudes towards marijuana in the workplace was conducted and reported. Future research and practical implications are included.
