Today, 29 states permit the use of marijuana for medical conditions and nine have authorized its personal use for anyone 21 and older. Many states limit adverse employment action for medical marijuana use, and in Maine, employers can’t discriminate against an employee for off-duty marijuana use.
As more states legalize marijuana – and many also deal with the opioid epidemic – employers will be faced with challenges related to state human rights issues, state compliance issues and the increasing cost of noncompliance.
