Marijuana In the Workplace: Navigating Through the Clouds
This past election day, overshadowed by the drama of the presidential race was the fact that voters in 8 states passed measures legalizing marijuana use for either recreational or medical use. As a result, marijuana is now legal in 26 states and the District of Columbia. Despite this recent surge in pro-cannabis legislation, employers have been left in compliance limbo. Why? The measures that have been passed contain little verbiage on how marijuana should be handled in the workplace and there is next to no legal precedence for employers to go on. As a result, HR teams are scrambling to interpret how the new legislation will impact their company policies.
