    In stark contrast to the “Just Say No” 1980’s, the past two years has seen an explosion of medical marijuana legislation. Now, more than fifteen states have legislation or proposed legislation to legalize the use of this Class 1 banned drug. With a variety of laws addressing disabilities, illnesses and medication effects, it is critical for employers in all states to understand the impact of medically prescribed marijuana on not only drug testing policies, but also on medical effects under the ADA.
