Beginning January 1, 2024, California workers who use marijuana during their off-time will no longer be penalized. This is one of many cannabis-related bills that will go into effect next year. Under the new legislation, employers cannot penalize employees for using cannabis off the clock in private areas. This is a major victory for cannabis advocates and users alike!
