Mississippi Marijuana Employer Guidelines“Recreational vs. personal” use of marijuana: We recognize that a majority of the country uses the term “recreational use” when referring to states that have legalized possession and use of limited amounts of marijuana for those over 21.
Mississippi personal and medical use of marijuana.
Medical Use: On April 17, 2014, Governor Bryant approved law HB 1231 exempting from the controlled substance list “Processed cannabis plant extract, oil or resin that contains more than fifteen percent (15%) cannabidiol (CBD) or a dilution of the resin that contains at least fifty (50) milligrams of cannabidiol per milliliter, but not more than one-half of one percent (.5%) of tetrahydrocannabinol.” The law does not address the workplace in any fashion.
Personal Use: Mississippi does not have a personal use law at this time.
