A question I get asked all the time is 'can I still be fired for smoking marijuana, even if I live in a state that legalized marijuana?' The quick answer is yes, employers can still fire you for marijuana, even if your state has legalized marijuana. Does that mean that each and every employer will fire every marijuana consumer for a failed drug test? Of course not. Not all employers drug test, and some will no doubt update their drug testing policy to exclude marijuana. However, be aware that due to the fact that employers can hide behind federal law, they can still fire you even though marijuana is legal to consume within some states. Oregon is no exception.
