Oklahoma House Bill 2612, also called the medical cannabis “unity bill,” takes effect Aug. 30. The legislation clarifies aspects of the state’s medical cannabis law, including a framework for patients in the workplace.
The law prohibits employers from penalizing or refusing to hire and applicant or employee solely based on a positive test for cannabis use, unless the position includes “safety-sensitive job duties” such as driving or operating machinery, according to a KFOR report. Employers are not required to allow the possession or use of cannabis during work hours, however.
“From the State Chamber’s perspective, this bill accomplishes two important items,” Fred Morgan, president and CEO of the State Chamber of Oklahoma, which worked with lawmakers on the bill, told KTUL. “One, it respects the will of the voters following the legalization of medical marijuana in Oklahoma. Two, it provides much-needed clarity for employers and business owners.”
