DATIA Kicking Off 2011 Webinars Next Week

Southern states are notably absent from the list of 15 states (and Washington, D.C.) that have medical marijuana laws. The Feb. 9 webinar explores these laws' impact on employers' drug testing programs.

The Drug & Alcohol Testing Industry Association will begin its 2011 webinars on Feb. 9 with a presentation that will be of interest to safety managers and CEOs from Maine to Hawaii. Those two are among 15 states, plus the District of Columbia, that have medical marijuana laws in force. The Feb. 9 webinar by lawyer David G. Evans is titled "State Medical Marijuana Laws: The Potholes in the Road for Drug Free Workplace Programs."

Ten webinars are listed on DATIA's schedule. All will begin at 2 p.m. Eastern time, last one hour, and are priced at $49.

The medical marijuana law list shows few of the laws are in central states. They're concentrated on the East and West Coasts, as well as in Alaska, Colorado, Arizona, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, and New Mexico.

DATIA's description of the Feb. 9 webinar says Evans will address the changes employers should make in their policies to address medical marijuana and actions they can take against employees with medical marijuana cards who test positive for marijuana. Evans, whose main law office is in Flemington, N.J., is a member of the DATIA board and chair of the association's International Committee.
