Marijuana! Is it legal or not?
Our partner, Quest Diagnostics, recently posted about the constantly changing legislation surrounding marijuana. It is an insightful article about the differences between medical and recreational use and highlights some of the legal nuances among different states.
For employers who have a nationwide or multi-state presence, keeping up with the laws can be staggering, as evidenced in this state by state guide published by Rolling Stone. If you still have questions about the laws affecting you, the National Conference of State Legislature has a dedicated site outlining state medical marijuana laws.
Marijuana is still illegal by federal standards, and whether it is legal for medical use or recreational use in your state of domicile doesn’t necessarily mean that you must change your policies or standards of acceptance in the workplace.
