Most recent laws legalizing marijuana use have been geared towards removing criminal penalties for users, and do not fully address workplace issues posed by medical marijuana. Some state laws explicitly prohibit employers from discriminating against employees because of their status of medical marijuana cardholders. Some may only addresses the impact of a positive drug test for a limited set of job duties, such as public utility workers. Other state laws explicitly indicate that employers need not accommodate marijuana use in the workplace, but are silent on off-duty medical use.
