The "High" Risk of Marijuana

Four more states recently approved recreational marijuana. Along with changing laws comes confusion, questions and concerns by employers, HR directors and safety managers on how to handle a drug that is now legal in their state.

Jo brings years of experience from the Colorado workplace and will help you understand what these changes mean, what they do NOT mean and how to handle your policy moving forward. We will also look at trends in marijuana products affecting the workplace and best practices in drug screening.
