Is Marijuana Legal In The Workplace?
As with most marijuana-related matters, the answer is far from black and white. We cannot give you a straight yes or no as many factors come into play. Firstly, what type of work is it? We can almost guarantee that if you handle heavy machinery, marijuana at the workplace will not fly. The same goes if you’re a surgeon, pilot, Lyft driver, engineer, construction worker, and so on.
On the flip side, say you’re a graphic designer or a barista or a teacher—a less “high-risk” job that has you contained to a cubicle away from hammers and chainsaws. In these cases, marijuana might be allowed in the workplace.
