In light of state-legal cannabis, it would be easy to assume that users are safe from the persecution and marginalization of the prohibition era, such as missing out on a job or getting fired thanks to a cannabis drug test – a notorious dilemma for cannabis users. After all, alcohol has a much greater potential for leading to bad decision making, addiction, and affecting your state of mind the following day. Yet, no one can imagine getting fired from a job because your boss heard you were drinking the night before. In fact, Mad Men style office drinking has made a modest comeback in the digital era. So, it might come as a bit of a shock that neither recreational users nor medical patients are widely protected from discrimination by employers.
