Be warned, even if you have a prescription for medical marijuana, if your boss thinks you're high at work you could still get in trouble. Arizona House passed a drug-testing bill today:
PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona House has passed a drug testing bill proposed as a response to Arizona voters' legalization of medical marijuana.
The bill would let employers take action against employees who are believed to be impaired at work due to drug use, whether legal or illegal. Monday's passage on a 56-3 vote sends the bill to the Senate.
The bill is backed by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It provides employers with a legal shield from lawsuits if they act in good faith against employees who show signs of impairment.
