Marijuana seems to be in the headlines more than ever. There’s real pot, synthetic pot and even “legal” pot. One of the most controversial and confusing issues facing employee screening providers and employers is what to do in states with “legal marijuana” laws. As of November 6, eighteen (18) states plus the District of Columbia have medical marijuana laws and two of these states have legalized the “recreational” use of marijuana. To complicate matters even further, there’s a growing trend toward the use of synthetic cannabinoids (or “fake marijuana”).
In this insightful presentation, you will learn about the various state laws pertaining to marijuana, real, fake or legal, and how those laws affect the workplace. You will also learn what rights employers have and what they can do with positive marijuana drug test results when the donor claims to have used the drug legally.
