Mr. Biden does not support the national legalization of marijuana use. However, he does support decriminalizing its use by removing it from the federally restricted controlled substances list, thereby largely allowing state laws to control on use allowance or restrictions. Mr. Biden’s policies do not articulate how employers would be permitted to maintain drug-free workplaces under such a policy change. Mr. Biden supports the issuance of a coronavirus Emergency Temporary Standard that would convert current CDC and OSHA guidance from suggestive to mandatory. In addition, the candidate supports a transition to a permanent infectious disease standard that would require employers to permanently implement infection control programs to protect their workers. Mr. Biden would reinstate an OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping rule that would make contractors liable for records in their OSHA logs dating back five-and-a-half years instead of six months.
