Understand Cannabis Laws Now – Make Informed Decisions Later

Summary:

It seems that after every election cycle, more states join the ranks of those that have legalized cannabis. And after the results are in, thousands of employers are left asking, “What does this mean for me?” We get it. It can be daunting to try to understand the implications of cannabis legalization so that you can make informed decisions about your cannabis testing policies and programs.

The good news is that these laws often have a waiting period before they take effect which means employers have time to review and enhance their workplace drug testing policies.

  3. Why it’s important that employers prioritize updating their drug testing policies
  4. How a recent use breath test may help employers navigate the constraints of new cannabis laws
