Marijuana and Employment: May 21 Infographic

By OCC Staff


One of the biggest problems with consuming marijuana for many American’s is the disapproval of their employer to its use. Even in legal marijuana states, few if any protections exist for employees that consume cannabis in their off time. Since the metabolites remain in your system for weeks and not hours, a drug test can pick up traces of cannabis in your system. Even legal medical marijuana patients under state laws that are usiing cannabis are subject to discrimination practices by employers.

We found a great infographic from Sentor Byer Insurance in Florida, one of the newest medical marijuana states. Some of the facts may surprise you, and we encourage you to read the full article on their website,
