Medical Marijuana Update - July 21, 2021

Medical marijuana is a topic we hear more and more about as 37 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands have approved comprehensive, publicly available medical marijuana/cannabis programs. As of July 2020, there were 33.8+M legal medical marijuana patients in the U.S.

In this webinar, our panel of experts will describe some of the proposed uses of medical marijuana. They will break down how medical marijuana works and identify the ways marijuana affects the body and interacts with other medicines. We will also review the latest legislative actions surrounding medical marijuana use and discuss the challenges and heightened levels of concern employers may face if an employee returns to a safety-sensitive occupation while subject to potential adverse cognitive and psychological effects of marijuana.
