Medical marijuana in the work place; get your questions answered
PHOENIX - The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act is bringing up a lot of questions, among them; how will prescription holders be dealt with in the work place?
Wednesday at 10am, Mountain States Employers Council is holding a webinar to help employers better understand the law. The webinar costs $129 and you can still register by firstname.lastname@example.org .
Attorney Dave Smith with Mountain States says they are suggesting employers review their employee handbooks now.
Employers can restrict the usage of medical marijuana at work. They can discipline those who are under the influence. They can also restrict possession of medical marijuana on the work premises.
The question is how they will determine who is under the influence, because testing positive is not an indicator of being “high.”
Employers cannot decide not to hire a person based on the fact that they are a medical marijuana prescription holder. They also cannot fire a person based on their prescribed medical marijuana use.
Smith suggests employees that believe they will get a medical marijuana prescription educate themselves on the law and make sure they carry their medical marijuana card.
Friday the Arizona Department of Health Services will release the preliminary regulations for the Medical Marijuana Act. The rules are scheduled to be finalized by March 29th.
