Medical Marijuana and the Workplace: A Prescription for Employers

Presented by: The Miller Group

Thinking about medical marijuana policies in the workplace?

Today’s marijuana is not what it was in the 70s – It’s more potent and increasingly legal. If you’re an employer, you need policies just as strong.

What policies can you legally put in place as more employees begin using medical marijuana (likely without your knowledge)? Our panel of experts will answer frequently asked questions such as testing, drug-free policies, and if there is an acceptable level of THC. We’ll also review best practices for handling employees who live and visit states with legal marijuana.
