Can they do this?
Not sure who "they" are. It also seems that your employer is doing the things mentioned in your post, so it seems rather obvious that your employer can do those things.
If your intent was to ask whether it is legal for your employer to demand to see your medical marijuana certificate, I suspect the answer is yes. As you probably know, a great many employers test for illegal drug use and terminate employees who test positive. I'm going to guess your employer does this and, perhaps, that you tested positive and sought to justify your positive test by reference to your medical marijuana status (apparently, your employer became aware of your status, so it's hardly a privacy issue at this point to ask you to prove your status). It's hardly unreasonable for your employer to want verification and not simply take your word for it.
If the facts are different than what I surmised above, please clarify because different facts could produce a different response.

No drug test. Not required for job. Employer became informed because when asked I was honest about it.
Fair enough. However, since your employer already knows, providing the certificate doesn't really raise any sort of privacy issue.
In terms of other prescription narcotics, to some extent, it depends on what you do for a living.
If you're really uncomfortable about this, a consultation with an employment law attorney might be in order. A consultation should be relatively inexpensive and possibly free.
