What would you like to know about the law on employee use of medicinal marijuana?

Last month, the Massachusetts Supreme Court held (here) that a local employer may have a duty to accommodate an employee’s use of medicinal marijuana. You can read more about that decision at Jon Hyman’s Ohio Employer’s Law Blog.

Wait, what? If marijuana is still considered an illegal drug under federal law — it is — what duty could an employer possibly have to accommodate an employee’s use of marijuana, even for medical purposes?

Maybe, it’s not so clear.

Indeed, since Jon’s post, I’ve read a number of related articles, many of which pose questions:

Gosh, this is confusing.

Later this week, I’ll try to clear up some of this up when I present “Marijuana in the Workplace: Don’t Get Caught Unprepared” at a national disability-management conference in Anaheim, CA.

If you’re in the house that day, stop by and say hello.

For the rest of you, I have a small favor to ask. Actually, maybe we can help each other out. That is, if you could ask one question about marijuana and the workplace, what would it be? Email me and maybe I’ll have some answers for you.
