Man Mauled By Grizzly While Smoked on Weed Can Collect Comp
Generally, speaking being drunk, intoxicated or in an "altertated state" takes you outside of the zone of employment for worker's compensation purposes if the employer can show that your state of intoxication caused your injury. Obviously, being mauled by a Grizzly tends not to suggest that your use of a substance caused the injury unless of course you did something really out of the ordinary. Not that workers high on marijuana ever do anything stupid or unusual.
