A couple of my co-workers & I smoke recreational cannabisâ€¦ Occasionally every one of us get high in the cut room before every one of us go back to work! A couple of mornings ago at lunch time, my boss walked by their cut room & he odored cannabis; He instantly came into the room & started asking questions, and i was the only person left in the room when that incident occurred.
I acted care about I didn’t know what he was talking about, then the next afternoon there was an email from the boss threatening to test everyone for marijuana use.
The laws in this state are fuzzy & I’m not sure if the boss can honestly fire us or not for using marijuanaâ€¦ Recreational & medical marijuana were both legalized in the state of NM & that includes the neighborhood of Albuquerque. I currently work & live in Albuquerque, and when the boss threatened my task, I started to look online to see if I could find out the rules regarding the use of marijuana & my task. I didn’t know if the threats were valid or not. It turns out that my boss had to include that information in the contract when I signed up to work at the firm in Albuquerque. I’m not going to push the issue right now, because I don’t want the boss to know that my friends & I were the 1s smoking recreational marijuana. We honestly won’t smoke in the cut room anymore. I shall go down to my car even if I have to cut my lunch cut 10 minutes short.
