WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - New York’s Department of Labor is out with guidance on recreational marijuana, which offers a lot of protection to employees outside of the workplace.

An employer can no longer test an employee for marijuana use except for a couple exceptions, like if they were impaired by pot on the job.

But a person still can’t use marijuana while working, whether they are on site or on call.

And of course recreational marijuana is only legal for New Yorkers 21 and over.
