How Does Legalized Marijuana Affect the Construction Worksite?

Learn to navigate the maze of inconsistent and rapidly changing state and federal cannabis laws.

Though cannabis is illegal under federal law, 33 states and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis for medical use and ten states, as well as D.C., have legalized it for recreational use, a dichotomy that presents a unique and complex challenge for businesses in the construction industry. This topic will provide an overview of federal and state marijuana laws, discuss specific aspects of the employment relationship affected by the legalization of marijuana in certain states, and offer practical guidance for employers on how to navigate this new and developing area of the law.
