Session Description:

Employers have been grappling with confusing cannabis laws for years—and the rules are getting tougher to navigate as more states add employment protections.

20 states now have legal adult recreational use. Over 30 states have approved medical cannabis. And even though Cannabis remains a Schedule I drug under the federal Controlled Substances Act more and more states are either enacting cannabis laws with express employment protections or resolving court cases in favor of cannabis users.

Increased access to cannabis results in increased use and increased risk especially for safety sensitive employees.  The number of safety sensitive employees testing positive continues to climb and CBD throws another wrench in the employment picture.

We will look at cannabis and CBD through the lens of the workplace and the challenges employers and employees are facing.

Participants will :

1) Identify the trends in US for cannabis legalization

2) Explore the complications current laws create for employers

3) Discuss impact on safety sensitive employees
