Employers In Maine Can No Longer Test For Cannabis Use

Maine has become the first state to protect employees from anti-cannabis discrimination. Cannabis is no longer on Maine Department of Labor's list of substances employers can test for. This means employers can't fire, discipline, or refuse to hire individuals who test positive for marijuana consumption.

This is a refreshing development given the discrimination cannabis users face, even in states where recreational cannabis use is legal.

While employers in Maine can't punish workers who use marijuana on their own time, employers continue to have the ability to ban the use and possession of cannabis “in the workplace.” Employees caught under the influence at work can be reprimanded. But, the employer will need more than a positive drug test to prove a worker was using cannabis. This is another key development since people can test positive for cannabis weeks after using it.
