South Dakota Amends Medical Cannabis Law

South Dakota has enacted clarifying language for its laws concerning cannabis in the workplace. Senate Bill 12 provides that employers are not prohibited from:

  • taking adverse employment action, based solely on a positive test result for cannabis metabolites, against an employee if they are employed in a safety-sensitive job; or
  • refusing to hire a person, based solely on a positive test result for cannabis metabolites, if the person is seeking employment in a safety-sensitive job.
