An Act To Clarify the Disqualification from Unemployment Benefits of a Person Who Is Terminated from Employment for Being Under the Influence of Marijuana

The Maine Legislature introduced bill LD 1013 which disqualifies an individual from receiving unemployment benefits if such employment was terminated because the individual was under the influence of marijuana while on duty or when reporting to work, as is already the case for alcohol and illegal drugs.

As written, LD1013 makes no exception for medical use marijuana. LD1013 was referred to the Committee on Labor and Housing on February 26 and a public hearing will be held March 11th.
