This drug is not bad, mmkay


Marijuana has been legal in Colorado for several years, and there is some form of marijuana reform in almost ever single state. However one key aspect is missing and that is an employer can fire you for the use of marijuana. Employers have been using this for years, and the employees that do use marijuana are just stressed that tomorrow could be our last day if there is a random drug test. 
Every day I go to work and have to hide an aspect of my life, that I smoke weed. Weed has helped me so much in my battle with depression, stress and anxiety, however more stress is added because I fear I could be terminated if people found out. I love my job, but I don’t love the stress it gives. 
I have given up on the hopes of legalization or even decriminalization. What I think needs to happen first is a very simple bill. 

It should be illegal for employers to fire an employee for their legal recreational activities. it doesn’t make any sense that I can go to a store, buy a product, and get fired for using that product. As long as marijuana is not affecting job performance, it shouldn’t be an acceptable cause for termination.

 I was hoping a change would come sooner. Obviously that is not happening, however I truly believe now is the perfect time to make a marijuana reform. Help us, please.

Thank you for taking the time to read this petition, I am sorry for grammatical errors as I am not the most well spoken.
