Cannabis in the Workplace: Highs and Lows

Cannabis in the Workplace: Highs and Lows

If you’ve been worried about ‘weed’ in the workplace, you’re not alone. Statutes permitting medical and recreational cannabis use are sweeping the country, despite federal law that bans the cultivation, sale and use of cannabis. Marijuana possession and use may be a violation of federal law, but if you’re assuming that no one on your staff would ever show up for duty under the influence of cannabis, you’re going to face some hard realities without a plan. Attend this workshop to learn what employers need to know about the legalization of marijuana, including the interaction between state and federal laws, and important considerations when dealing with recreational versus medical marijuana usage. This session will incorporate group discussion on nonprofit risk topics like insurance and federal grants as they relate to drug free workplaces. Leave this session with insights on practical policies and best practices for drug testing and responding to addiction.
