Marijuana: A look at the science & state legislation

Get a better understanding of the legal and regulatory environment in this informative webinar

Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug and is classified as a Schedule I drug under federal law. Data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) reports that there were 18.9 million past month marijuana users in 2012, many of whom are employed.

As states continue to pass legislation for medical and recreational use, employers have more and more questions about marijuana. Employers face challenges such as off-duty use, impairment, employee protections for medical marijuana and the uncertainty of laws that vary by state.

Join us for a presentation featuring expert speakers Dr. Barry Sample, Director of Science and Technology, Quest Diagnostics, and D. Faye Caldwell, Attorney at Law, Caldwell Everson, PLLC.  The pair addresses the effects of marijuana use, educates you on common terms, reviews state laws and presents insights from recent Drug Testing Index™ data.
