No on Proposition 19

Propositon 19's Impact on the Workplace

Proposition 19 seeks to legalize the cultivation, processing, transportation, distribution and sale of marijuana for personal use in California. However, the measure is written in a way that blurs the line for employers regarding important workplace issues, including whether employers must allow marijuana smoking at work and who will pay for marijuana-related accidents.

Proposition 19, the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, not only would legalize pot use in California but also would create a legal quagmire for employers by compromising workplace safety and establishing a new class of protected workers in the state.
