Alcohol and some drugs are legal in all states. For example, it's legal to use over-the-counter drugs or prescription drugs that have been prescribed for you by a doctor. In addition, marijuana is legal in some states but not in others. But that doesn't mean it's all right to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs while at work. In most cases this is forbidden, that's because doing so can create many safety and health hazards and can also lead to poor work quality and interpersonal problems. Talk with your managers or consult your company's policies to learn the rules at your work. If you have a prescription or over-the-counter drug at work, it's a good idea to talk with your manager first.
