house Bill H.R. 6589

Should Federal Workers be Allowed to Use Weed in States Where it’s Legal?

Argument in favor

The blanket ban on federal employees smoking marijuana no longer makes sense when 46 states have enacted laws that are in direct conflict with the federal Controlled Substances Act. Additionally, the marijuana ban disproportionately affects veterans, who are more likely than the general population to use medical marijuana.

States rights should be respected and by allowing employees to follow state law is a common sense idea.

CBD is a oil created from marijuana, It has found that CBD is helpful in cancer patients and skin illnesses such as psoriasis and skin cancer, yet insurance companies will not fund or pay for CBD medicine. Though doctors agree it is helpful. Please write or tweet your Representatives and ask them to support CBD treatment it’s time marijuana is decriminalized on a national level any individual with a life-threatening disease chronic illness should be allowed to grow their own marijuana and make their own CBD if they cannot afford the pre-manufactured product. In the constitution that says we have the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness but how can we have those things if were struck down by a disease that can be cured and you can’t afford to buy it? As I see it it’s written in the Constitution we have the right to protect ours or our own life.

Cannabis will be legal in all states soon anyway. And why should federal employees be denied the benefits of this medicinal plant?

Argument opposed

While individual states may have their own laws governing marijuana use, the fact remains that marijuana is illegal at the federal level. It’s a fireable offense for federal employees to violate federal laws of all sorts, and if those employees don’t want to be held to a higher standard they don’t have to work in the federal bureaucracy.

Until it’s legalized FEDERALLY, FEDERAL employees do not get to indulge.

Federal law should not deal with the legality of dope, that is certain. But, employment standards are set by employers, regardless where you work, the boss is the boss.

As a veteran you’re subject to random drug screening as a Federal government employee. Marijuana is still illegal and should remain illegal. It’s a gateway drug. #MAGA

    One law for everyone and companies should not screen for weed where it is legal also.

    If federal workers can still use tobacco, it is pure hypocrisy to ban cannabis. Since several times a day these federally employed drug addicts can legally dose up on a drug 10% more addictive than heroine and considered the worlds #1 cause of preventable death that costs billions in healthcare every year. Let’s not even consider alcohol in this context. Total BS.

    Absolutely, but having federal law allowing states to legalize would be a better choice. Move forward and get out of the refer madness mindset already.

    If federal employees are entitled to drink alcohol or use tobacco products whilst off the clock, they absolutely should be able to do the same with cannabis, especially as it is infinitely less harmful to health than the two legal drugs named above.

    What if the Federal workers are pilots, aircraft mechanics, railway workers or members of law enforcement? To name just a few clear conflicts that have serious, mass life safety implications.

    There is way too much time going into what should be a simple solution. I don’t want another dollar of my tax money being used to fight reefer madness laws. Stop filling prisons with people whose big crime is using marijuana! Let medical users travel freely across state boarders with their medicine! Take marijuana off of Schedule One!

    As long as it is not used while on the job why not? If a state has voted to legalize recreational use - just like alcohol - ok to use but not on job.
