Illegal to Fire for Off-Hour Marijuana Use

New legislation is planned to be introduced next month that would prevent workers from losing their jobs for consuming marijuana on their own time.  Senator Jason Lewis plans to introduce it but says “This is not intended to be a blanket protection for people to use cannabis whenever and wherever they like, but as long as they’re not impaired and it’s not impacting their work, employers should not be able to discriminate against them in hiring or promotion, and companies certainly should not be terminating people simply because they legally use marijuana on their own time.”  Should companies still be allowed to test for pot?  Will this legislature pass?
