Recreational marijuana use was made legal in Connecticut nearly a year ago. Now, starting on July 1st, the work-related provisions of the state’s marijuana law will go into effect. According to these workplace-related provisions, employers are required to have an updated drug-free workplace policy. This policy must include rules that govern pre-employment drug testing as well as accommodations for employees that have medical marijuana cards. Additionally, the law does allow employees to sue employers who allegedly violate this law. These new provisions limit an employer’s ability to penalize a job applicant or employee for a positive marijuana test. Although the law does contain a lot of protections for employers.

Prominent Democrats have been pushing to pass the SAFE Banking Act, which would enable legally operating cannabis firms to use banking services, as part of a larger China competition package being conferenced in both the House and Senate.
