Thirty states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana in some form and eight of those states and D.C. have adopted laws legalizing it for recreational use. Regardless of state laws, it is important for employers to strive to maintain a drug-free workplace and forbid the use of marijuana during work hours. Drug policies should be clearly outlined for candidates and workers. And although medical marijuana is regularly being prescribed for disabilities, since it remains a Schedule 1 drug, it disqualifies people from the protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Some states do offer protections, however, and in the states that have passed anti-discrimination laws, courts have ruled that these states have the final say on the matter.
