A Washington State Senate committee Tuesday approved bills to provide employment protections for adults who use marijuana and to promote social equity in the cannabis industry. While Washington was one of the first states to legalize adult-use marijuana, lawmakers are still working to improve the law, including the recent passage of legislation in committee earlier this month to prepare for eventual interstate marijuana trade following federal reforms. The bill would prohibit employers from discriminating against most job applicants who test positive for off-duty marijuana use or non-psychoactive THC metabolites. The proposal has some caveats, for example, it would not prevent employers from using drug tests that can detect active marijuana impairment. It also says the reform would not affect "an employer's right or obligation to maintain a drug- and alcohol-free workplace or any other right or obligation of an employer required by federal law or regulation."
