Denver NORML Pushing Proposal to Ban Job Termination Due to Cannabis Use

The proposal, if picked up by a legislative sponsor, would provide protection under the Unfair Employment Practices statute for marijuana users in the state. This would make it illegal for businesses to terminate employees who are not in possession of, or using cannabis on the job.

Old fashioned drug tests can catch marijuana metabolites in the body for weeks, and up to 6 months if it is a hair test. It is absurd to terminate hard-working employees who use marijuana responsibly in a state where cannabis is legal.
