Massachusetts Bill Would Bar Workers from Being Fired for Private Pot Use

52

A proposed law in Massachusetts would bar employers from firing workers for using marijuana legally on their own time.

While recreational marijuana use is legal for adults in the state, workers can still be fired for using the drug, even if it’s outside of work and its effects have worn off by the time they return to their jobs.
The Boston Globe has announced the measure introduced by the Democratic State Act. Jason Lewis marijuana will look a lot like alcohol. Employees could be fired for demonstrating that their work was hindered, but employers could not use private use of the pot as police.

Federal contractors would be exempted from being illegal under US law.

Currently, there is no reliable test for cannabis disorder and drug tests are able to detect traces of cannabis for days or weeks of use.
