With 24 states and the District of Columbia currently having legalized medical and/or recreational use of marijuana, there are now tens of thousands of card-carrying marijuana users in the workforce. While these new marijuana legalization laws come as a welcome relief to those seeking to benefit from the drug’s therapeutic benefits, they also have the potential to create a legal hangover for employers who now have to navigate the array of new rights and obligations. 

Join us as we discuss how these new legalization laws interact with existing federal employment laws such as the ADA and FMLA, as well as various state anti-discrimination and off-duty conduct laws.
