While Maryland will soon allow marijuana, the drug is still illegal federally, which can lead to confusion by employees that are required to take drug tests as a new hire, randomly and/or due to a workplace accident. Beginning on July 1, adults ages 21 and older will be allowed to use and possess up to 1.5 ounces of marijuana. Maryland will join more than 20 states and the District of Columbia that allow for the recreational use of the drug.
