February 1st 2016

There are many terrific companies to work for, but there are also many terrific joints to be smoking. What's a man or woman to do? As we've explained before, drug testing is typically a waste of money and often unfairly dives into an employee's private life, so many marijuana advocates and others are against it. (We also want you to know there are ways to beat drug tests.)

Many small businesses and certain kinds of industries (like marijuana shops) that don't typically drug test, but we wanted to take a look at our favorites from Fortune's list of top companies to work for and Glassdoor.

Fortunately, many drug companies couldn't care less if you go home and roll a J, so let's look at the five best companies where you can do that. (For the record, ATTN: is one of them.)

1. Google

Location: Mountain View, California

Google is rated by Fortune as 2015's best company to work for, based on its extensive yearly survey. Perhaps one of the reasons the company is so highly rated by its employees is that Google does not drug test, according to sources that have confirmed this for ATTN:. A lot of Silicon Valley companies don't drug test and that's likely because a lot of tech developers enjoy marijuana. If your talent pool enjoys getting high but is also incredible at their work, then you might have to be cool about it.

Benefits: An onsite fitness center, college tuition reimbursement, unlimited sick days, benefits for same-sex couples and more.

2. Twitter
