Maintaining a drug-free workplace
By Jamie Stalker, MD, Chief Medical Officer
Argonne National Laboratory cares about the wellbeing of its employees and the quality of their work. With the recent change in state law, some may have questions regarding recreational marijuana, which will become legal in Illinois in January 2020.
The U.S. Department of Energy considers any use of marijuana illegal under federal law, regardless of state law. Argonne’s policies are written to comply with federal law, and thus will still regard a verified positive drug test for cannabis as a violation that requires disciplinary action.
Please review the in-depth FAQ on marijuana, drug testing procedures, and substance abuse programs for employees.
Thank you for helping us maintain a safe, drug-free workplace. Should you have additional questions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 2-2811.
