Marijuana Policy & Best Practices for Employee & Patient Medical & Recreational Use
Wednesday, March 22, 2023, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM EST
Category: Workshop

(90-minute webinar – available live or on-demand)

As the march toward nationwide legalization continues, you can’t afford to ignore cannabis compliance. Is your agency prepared to manage legal marijuana use by remote, hybrid, and onsite employees? Has your state’s medical marijuana program (MMP) authorized you to administer cannabis to patients? Effective marijuana policy and procedures are at the heart of workplace cannabis management. What's your policy? Do you have one?


While marijuana use remains illegal on the federal level, states are swiftly legalizing medical and recreational use. Regardless of your state's policy, now is the time for employers to address the risks and challenges posed by employee and patient marijuana use.

This webinar is designed to help organizations understand, prepare for, and compliantly manage employee marijuana use at home, at patients’ homes, and in the office. Learn why and how to implement best practices-based marijuana policy to communicate rules, manage expectations, support productivity, ensure safety, and comply with federal and state laws. Attend this program to learn the ABCs of evolving laws and effective marijuana policy for employees and patients. Please note this webinar will cover content at a national level and provide resources to find state-specific information.
