During this webinar, we will discuss the challenges of managing cannabis in the workplace and its potential impacts on employers and employees. This is a great opportunity for employers to gain insight on the impairment effects of cannabis (reduced reaction times, irritability, loss of focus, lethargy, poor decision making, etc.) and better understand how these effects can impact your organization and staff.

Learn more about the legal do's and don’ts of cannabis in the workplace, the various types of testing programs available, the necessary legal accommodations required for medical cannabis and best practices for the implementation of workplace drug policies and programs.
