Fermilab is a federal site, and while marijuana has been legalized in Illinois, it remains a controlled substance under federal law and is therefore prohibited on Fermilab property. Marijuana (and other controlled substances) prescribed for or administered to the employee by a licensed physician are also prohibited on Fermilab property. This prohibition applies to all areas of the Fermilab site, including the public areas and the Village.
