Marijuana and CBD Update: What Employers Can Legally Do Over Concerns about Joints, Edibles, Oils, and Vaping - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the key legal concerns and legal limits employers now face regarding marijuana, vaping, and CBD.


Employers continue to struggle with their legal rights and duties when an employee is using marijuana given the legalization of recreational and medical usage in many states.

And, the playing field is getting even more confusing because with the legalization of marijuana comes the approval of related products such as cannabidiols (CBDs) which are readily available in your local supermarket. In the aftermath, employers are left grappling with ambiguities and even contradictions in the various state and federal laws and looking for guidance how  to manage their legal concerns over prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) CBD usage—whether it’s in the form of edibles, oils, or a vapor  mist.

Use this on-demand webinar with Attorney Peter Lowe of Brann & Isaacson who writes and speaks extensively on workplace marijuana and drug issues. He will provide insight into the legal risks and legal limits of enforcing workplace policies concerning marijuana and CBDs.

After attending this webinar you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize how the legalization of marijuana for medical and/or recreational use impacts your workplace(s)
  • Legally respond when you have concerns over the usage of marijuana and CBDs in their varied forms—from joints to edibles and oils and vapor mists—when employees are on or off duty
  • Update employment policies to cover marijuana and CBDs without overstepping legal boundaries
  • Understand the practical implications of marijuana still being considered illegal—and a Schedule I drug—under federal law
  • Identify the impact OTC and medical-grade CBDs have on your game plan for enforcing a drug-free workplace policy
  • Understand the overlap with disability protections for employees.
  • And much more!
