Under Ohio’s medical marijuana law, employers may refuse to hire, discharge, or take adverse employment actions because of a person’s use of medical marijuana. In fact, if you are injured at work while under the influence of marijuana, you are not eligible for workers’ compensation, whether or not the medical cannabis was recommended by a doctor.

According to the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation, Ohio employers are not required to accommodate employee’s desire to use medical cannabis in the workplace. In fact, the BWC recommends that employers establish a drug-free workplace—presumably, even employers in the cannabis industry.
