obviously if you're under the influence at the time, but if it's legal for recreational use i don't think they can. can you be fired for drinking beer at your house?

They can fire you for drinking beer/alcohol during your break in work. I was at a job interview and most of the personality questions consisted of getting high and smoking weed.

I assume he was talking about drug testing, not actually showing up to work after smoking

People have lost law suits against their workplace on all kind of drug issues. In California people with cards gets fired, Native Americans have been fired over the use of drugs for their religious purposes. It's entirely up to the company's discretion.

this... if you are high and come to work then they can 100% fire you.

but weed should have the same consequences of alcohol...

Colorado's an at will employment state. Unless you've got a contract stating otherwise you can get fired for anything at anytime.

Massachusetts looks to have legalized medical marijuana. Oregon bill fails.

well most are at will employees. However, it would make little sense to fire people for a legal activity that had no effect on performance or environment. Technically you can be fired for wearing bright colors, doesn't mean it is likely.
