Featuring Bill Current and Bob Capwell


 Local marijuana laws seem to be as fluid as the clouds of smoke circling around users these days. As more states change laws, employers are scrambling to keep up.

While there are many changes, one thing remains the same. Marijuana users, just like those who misuse alcohol, are still more likely to be involved in a workplace accident, file a workers' compensation claim, and utilize their health care benefits. Employees under the influence of marijuana are still dangerous and marijuana is still illegal according to federal law.

So, how do these changes affect your business?  Do you have the right to test for marijuana? What can be done when someone tests positive? How effective are advanced drug testing methods such as lab-based oral fluid at detecting marijuana, and is it legal to use oral fluids for drug testing in states with legal marijuana laws?

Attendees will learn:

  • The magnitude of the marijuana problem and how it affects the workplace
  • How marijuana compares to alcohol, and does the argument of alcohol vs. marijuana support legalizing  pot?
  • The status of today's state medical marijuana laws (including the newest laws in Florida and Minnesota) and how they impact the workplace
  • An update on recreational marijuana laws in Colorado and Washington, as well as other states on the verge of legalizing pot
  • How to modify a company's drug testing policy to cover marijuana specifically
  • How lab-based oral fluid testing works as a means of testing for marijuana in states with legal pot laws
