As medical and recreational use of marijuana gains more acceptance in states across the country, employers must be diligent in exercising care to comply with employment laws.  Bennett Law Firm advised us this week of a recent decision by the Supreme Court of the state of Colorado that found in favor of the employer.  In the case of Coats v Dish, the highest state court in Colorado upheld the termination of an employee who failed a random drug test even though he had a medical prescription to use cannabis daily.  The court ruled that even though Colorado has legalized marijuana, the federal government has not, consequently, the employer’s drug policy may be legally enforced.
