Medical Marijuana Use


#1

How do Adjudicators make decisons on this topic when a person is currently employed by the Federal Govt - regardless if he/she is a contractor or sub-contractor? Do they lose their clearance and job? And how is this particular substance handled when it comes to the security forces on DOE nuclear installations?


#2

Marijuana use is still considered illegal by the federal government. So it is considered illegal drug use.


#3

So an employee who receives a perscription for the medicinal use of marijuana will be fired from their job because of it correct?

See this latest issuance for all you need to know:

Or how about the employee how lives with a either a legal recreational user or medicinal user and is tested positive during their "random" drug testing? Loss of clearance and job?

Thank you Marko!

Okay I read the Memorandum. So, if a federal employee who does not meet the described position in the memorandum like a construction worker or janitor,are able to have a perscription or use recreationally? Depending on the state.

All federal employees fall under federal laws regardless of where they work and are subject to the Executive Order for a Drug Free Workplace.
