Pala is committed to providing a safe working environment, and our drug and alcohol policies were developed to further that commitment. As you may be aware, the State of California permits recreational use of marijuana, effective January 1, 2018. However, marijuana is still classified as an illegal drug under federal law; therefore Pala continues to enforce existing policies prohibiting the use, possession, solicitation, and sale of illegal drugs including marijuana with or without a medical prescription. Violation of these policies will lead to discipline including termination or denial of employment.
