Maine Protects Employee's Right to Off-Duty Recreational Marijuana Use.
Starting this month, employers in Maine cannot refuse to employ or otherwise penalize anyone 21 or older due to their “consuming marijuana outside the … employer’s … property.”
Maine Voters approved recreational marijuana use on November 8, 2016, including retail sales and taxation. The law they passed contained an anti-discrimination provision, creating an entirely new protected class of pot users.
