SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Marijuana is legal, but your boss can still fire you.
That might change, though, if some Illinois lawmakers have their way.
The Illinois Senate is considering a law that would prohibit employers from firing workers who test positive for trace amounts of marijuana.
Federal workers would still have to follow federal law, which prohibits marijuana use — and people in the medical field, law enforcement and people who work with dangerous machinery would not be covered.
Currently, 18 states allow recreational marijuana use.
