Prop 19 Would Allow Pot Smoking at Work Group Claims

Supporters and opponents of a ballot measure to legalize marijuana in California are dueling over the law's possible effects on employers and the workplace.

  The California Chamber of Commerce claimed in a legal analysis released Thursday that Proposition 19 would lead to more workplace accidents by forcing employers to let workers smoke pot on the job.
 
The analysis also contends the law would make California companies ineligible for federal contracts because employers could not guarantee a drug-free workplace.
 
The proposition's supporters dispute the chamber's findings. They point to the state Legislative Analyst's Office's determination that employers would retain their right to enforce existing workplace pot rules under the new law.
