With the legalization of marijuana in Nevada, some businesses are opting not to test potential employees for pot.

Caesars Entertainment is the latest company on the Las Vegas Strip to drop marijuana drug testing.

The Associated Press reported that some hotels are skipping the test because managers are having a tough time finding workers who don't use marijuana.

A spokesperson for Caesars says that they only drug test employees if they have a reason to believe they've used drugs.

MGM Resorts say they are still issuing pre-employment marijuana test as a part of their hiring process.
