    Until recently, the law with respect to marijuana use and employment was relatively simple. Now, even though the Federal Government continues to classify marijuana as a Schedule I drug, 33 states and the District of Columbia have passed legislation legalizing marijuana use for either medical or recreational purposes, or both, with more state legislation in the works. And another 15 states permit the use of Low THC marijuana derivative products for medicinal use. These changes have created a number of vexing questions for employers, unions and employees concerning employer and individual rights and responsibilities.
