Nevada law prevents most employers from rejecting pot-users

Two backers of a pioneering Nevada law to prevent employers from rejecting job-seekers based on a pre-employment marijuana test cast the effort Wednesday as an anti-discrimination measure in a state where recreational pot sales are booming and rules about legal marijuana consumption are evolving. The law, which goes into effect in January, won’t ban testing job applicants for cannabis chemicals, according to Democratic Assembly members Dina Neal and Edgar Flores But it will prohibit many employers from using the results to turn someone away.
