    If your UA is dirty it will affect your pain management contract for prescription pain relievers. Prescribing doctors are required to give random tests in my state.

    What you should know is... there shouldn't be thc in your system. If it shows in a UA, it's your fault.

    Medical treatment, including medications is provided that is "reasonably expected to cure or relieve from the effects of your injury/illness", with a goal of return to work sooner than later. Of course you can refuse the meds, or any other treatment options.
    Pain medication is generally RX'd on a "as needed" basis. If you aren't experiencing the pain... no need to take the meds.
    Talk to your Dr.

    A UA positive for THC could become a major problem for you. Your medications will be withdrawn and it will be very difficult for you to ever get any more meds in the comp case.

    You may also be subject to having any wage loss benefits terminated or suspended because, by smoking weed, you are refusing to cooperate with your legitimate medical treatment.
