Compassionate use laws generally don't extend to the employment arena.
I have glaucoma, and my doctor gave me a prescription for medical marijuana to help me control my eye pressure. I use marijuana on the weekend and two evenings per week; I never use it during the work day or before work. I'm up for a promotion at my job, but my employer requires drug testing for this position. If I test positive for cannabis, can my employer use it against me?
