Is marijuana medicine? Should an employer be concerned with off-duty use? How do I write a policy if my state has passed marijuana legislation? What exactly is cannabidiol (CBD)? Should my company continue to drug test for marijuana?
Employers face a flurry of mixed messages about marijuana and continue to evaluate the impact of the drug on workplace safety and employee well-being. As drug use continues to rise, the Quest Diagnostics Drug Testing Index™ reports that marijuana tops the list of the most commonly detected illicit substances across all workforce categories, drug test specimen types, and testing reasons. Where can a company striving to be drug-free turn to for knowledge and guidance? Quest Diagnostics.
R. H. Barry Sample, PhD, senior director of science and technology at Quest Diagnostics, and D. Faye Caldwell, Attorney at Law, Caldwell Everson, discuss marijuana issues for employers in our upcoming webinar called, “Clarity through the Haze: Making sense of the ever-changing marijuana landscape.”
Our webinar will discuss:

This is an encore presentation of data, trends, and legal case studies presented by the pair at the National Safety Council (NSC) Cannabis Symposium earlier this summer. Professionals representing a variety of fields including law enforcement, health, transportation, academia, and human resources gathered at this conference to discuss the new challenges that marijuana is creating in American society.
