Effective marijuana policy and procedures are at the heart of workplace cannabis management. This webinar will help hospices and home care companies understand, prepare for, and manage marijuana use (at home, patients’ homes, and the office) in compliance with policy, best practices, and the law. Join us to gain an understanding of policy-related issues and procedures for employees and patients.


  • Write best practices-based marijuana policy and procedures
  • Manage employee marijuana use at home, patients’ homes, and the office
  • Administer cannabis to patients in compliance with your state medical marijuana program (MMP)
  • Comply with federal and state laws governing medical and recreational use
  • Accommodate medical use to stave off discrimination lawsuits
  • Take a considered approach to testing, or risk losing valuable hires and staff
  • Weigh zero-tolerance policies versus turning a blind eye
  • Comply with ADA, FMLA, Workers’ Compensation, and Drug-Free Workplace Act
  • Recognize and respond to suspected impairment on the job
  • Manage employee expectations, productivity, and safety
  • Keep pace with evolving marijuana legislation and case law including Delta-8 THC

WEBINAR DETAILS: Is your hospice or home care company prepared to manage legalized marijuana use by remote, hybrid, and onsite employees? Has your state’s MMP authorized you to administer cannabis to patients? As the march toward nationwide marijuana legalization continues, you can’t afford to leave cannabis compliance to chance. Employers are increasingly challenged by marijuana use by staff during and after working hours. While marijuana use remains illegal on the federal level, states are swiftly legalizing medical and recreational use.

Regardless of where your state stands, now is the time to address the risks and challenges posed by employee and patient marijuana use. Learn why and how to write best practices-based marijuana policy and procedures to communicate rules, manage expectations, support productivity, ensure safety, and comply with federal and state laws. Attend to learn the ABCs of evolving laws and effective marijuana policy for employees and patients.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?  This informative session is a must for human resources professionals, administrators, managers, executives, training managers, compliance officers, and legal professionals.
