"impaired" could still be fired as well.in the bill's legislative counsel digest, the state of california notes that "many workers and their physicians find medical cannabis beneficial for relieving painful or disabling conditions that could otherwise impede their performance."assemblyman rob bonta, d-oakland, discusses his proposed measure to make it easier for people with marijuana convictions to erase or reduce their records, during a news conference, tuesday, jan. 9, 2018, in sacramento, calif. bonta's bill would require county courts to automatically expunge or reduce eligible records, rather than requiring people to initiate the process themselves. (ap photo/rich pedroncelli)assemblyman rob bonta, d-oakland (ap photo/rich pedroncelli)a 2014 survey in the journal drug and alcohol review found one in 20 california adults had used medical cannabis for a "severe" condition and 90 percent of them found it effective.the digest states: "many employers nonetheless prohibit workers from using medical cannabis but allow them to use other, more dangerous and addictive drugs such as opiates when prescribed by their physicians."more americans died last year from opioid drug overdoses - 64,070 people - than all the americans killed in the vietnam war, according to the cdc.bonta's idea fits into a trend, too. eleven states - arizona, arkansas, connecticut, delaware, illinois, maine, minnesota, nevada, new york, pennsylvania, and rhode island - already have laws protecting medical cannabis patients against employment discrimination. the digest also finds that, "no scientific evidence exists that medical cannabis users are substandard employees" and that "workplace drug tests have never been demonstrated safe or effective by the united states food and drug administration in improving workplace safety."a worker hungover on alcohol on a monday could "pass" a standard

drug test. conversely, you can be fired for a joint you smoked six weeks ago, because "current workplace drug testing technology discriminates against medical cannabis use that has occurred days or weeks previously," the digest states.(smoked cannabis' effects wear off after about 90 minutes, while eaten cannabis effects can last six to eight hours. however, byproducts of cannabis use - called "metabolites" - stay in fat cells up to six weeks and can be detected through routine urinalysis.)ab 2069 would expand california's existing anti-discrimination code, which already bans discrimination by "race, religious national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition".california has had medical cannabis laws since 1996, and the issue of workplace discrimination of cannabis patients had previously been settled by the california supreme court, who ruled in 2008 in a precedent- setting case - ross vs raging wire - that medical cannabis patients could be subject to workplace discrimination.the state supreme court of colorado, in the case of - coats vs dish network - came to a similar 2015.but as medical expanded to cover more than 29 states, new medical marijuana laws ban such discrimination.american support for access to medical 90 percent, quinnipiac finds, government is currently barred from spending any money interfering with state-legal medical pot programs. the trend is toward more and more workplace rights for cannabis users, including allowing workman's compensation to cover cannabis.a national law review study from november 2017 concluded that "federal laws are not intended to preempt or supersede state anti-discrimination laws" and that employers face an "increased risk of enforcing zero tolerance drug testing policies against certified medical marijuana users." a recent poll found commissioned by a marijuana company in berkeleythat about hcompanies marijuana have some medical marihowever, 56 percent agairesponsible,this febbanned firing worka survcaliforniaten have lost a tnearly oneemployment due cannaof responden opportunitcannab
