OREGON SENATE BILL COULD MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO FIRE OR NOT HIRE BASED ON USE OF CANNABIS | CANNAWRAPS BLOG

January 27, 2017



Even though Cannabis has found its way to legality, whether that be for medical and/pr recreational purposes, its illegality on the federal level has enabled employers nation-wide to continue to legally discriminate against those who use cannabis in any capacity; but a bill recently introduced in Oregon may change that for those living in that state.

Oregon is one of the States that recently legalized recreational use, and the recently introduced Oregon Senate Bill 301 would make it illegal for employers to discriminate against anyone “using a substance that is lawful to use under the laws of this state during nonworking hours.”

This has been a vexing legal issue for many, who, though operating within the law, still had to hide their cannabis use from employers, or discontinue it entirely.

Is it time to move to Oregon?
