Cannabis in the WorkplaceRead Time: 1 min
States are increasingly passing legislation legalizing the use of marijuana (either for medicinal purposes or for recreational use). However, marijuana remains illegal as a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substances Act. This adversity between state and federal laws results in an environment rife with uncertainties for businesses, small and large.
Of Counsel Chase Stoecker (Fort Lauderdale) and Associate Andrew Albritton (New Orleans) will present a Law Practice CLE webinar, “Cannabis in the Workplace,” on December 13, 2023. Chase and Andrew will give a brief overview of cannabis, marijuana, hemp, and cannabinoids, followed by a discussion of state law developments addressing marijuana use by current and prospective employees. They will move on to Federal workplace laws that apply to the cannabis industry and wrap up the presentation with best practices for employers to ensure they are complying with both federal and state laws regarding employee marijuana use.
