Worker Protections ARE STILL IN PROCESS

Hawaii now is moving towards additional civil protections for employed cannabis patients. We almost got passed a law, held as language in Act 116, stating that employees who are not in safety-sensitive jobs may not be legally fired just for having a positive THC drug test. The actual language was not added, though, and this item must be fought for in future legislative bills.
