As more states authorize the use of marijuana for medical purposes, the body of law establishing parameters to govern its use becomes more important and far-reaching.  In a recent decision, the termination of an employee in New Mexico who legally used marijuana for a medical condition was upheld by the court.  Notwithstanding that the employee suffered from HIV/AIDS, the court found that the termination did not violate the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), nor New Mexico’s Compassionate Use Act (CUA) or Human Rights Act and that the employer (with stores in 49 states) was under no obligation to create a state-specific drug policy to address legal medical marijuana use.  Our friends at Sesco Management reported on the decision in their regular monthly newsletter out this week.  New Mexico now joins Alaska, Colorado and Oregon as states that have upheld marijuana terminations.
