Question: What types of questions can legally be asked about drug use during a job interview? Answer: An interviewer can ask what kind of medication you are taking that would cause positive results in a drug test. The interviewer can also ask if you use illegal drugs now or have done so within the past two years, and if you have ever been arrested or convicted of illegal drug use.   For more information about Illinois law, visit www.illinoislawyerfinder.com.
