On July 17, 2017, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court unanimously held that an employee may pursue a disability discrimination claim under state law against her former employer for failing to accommodate the employee’s use of medical marijuana.  This is the first decision by any state’s highest court to recognize a duty to accommodate medical marijuana users at work.  See decision here http://www.mass.gov/courts/docs/sjc/reporter-of-decisions/new-opinions/12226.pdf
