Employee’s working in the state of Main can no longer worry about being drugs tested and disciplined for their off work hours cannabis use. The Main Department of Labor has removed THC from the list of substances that employers are allowed to test for.
Though this move seems progressive, its shocking that other medical and recreational states such as Colorado, California, or Washington state haven’t follow suite. After all why should you be fired for something that is considered legal to consume according to your states government.
This new bill will prohibit employers from refusing to hire or from disciplining anyone over 21 years old that choses to consume marijuana outside of work but, also allows them to ban marijuana from the work place. It also, provided guidelines for discipline of anyone appeared to be “high” during the work day.
