New bill would prohibit employers from firing workers based solely on positive marijuana tests

It will be illegal in Colorado for employers to fire workers solely on the basis of a positive test for marijuana if a newly proposed bill is passed at the state house.

The Marijuana Consumer Employment Discrimination Protection Bill would clarify that a positive drug test for traces of marijuana can’t be grounds to fire an employee unless the person “used, possessed, or was impaired by marijuana during the hours of employment.”
