What theAPAOps5 said. However the employer currently deals with alcohol should be (but might not necessarily be in practice) how they deal with weed.
Doctors, nurses, police and firemen can drink and get drunk in their own home, but can't show up to work that way. It could easily be written into the next round of contracts that weed would be included in that class of drugs IMO. It's not a guarantee that it would pass (employees may have to concede some other point), but it could certainly be up for negotiation.
