How state and Federal Marijuana laws affect the workplace

States have passed a recreational marijuana law to strictly regulate the drug’s use by banning public use and places where it can be easily bought and the quantity that can be grown at home. More importantly, no state law forces an employer to tolerate its use in the workplace. If you recruit, hire or manage employees, you need to know the limits imposed by law – both on individuals and employers – so that you do not run into legal troubles.
