2020 ABA National Symposium on Technology in Labor & Employment Law
901 Massachusetts Ave NW
Washington, DC 20001-4307
Rebecca Stephens will be speaking at the 2020 ABA National Symposium on Technology in Labor & Employment Law session, "Marijuana in the Workplace."
According to a 2018 Pew Research Survey, 62 percent of U.S. respondents said marijuana use should be legal, compared to 31 percent who supported legalization in the year 2000. Currently, thirty-three states and Washington, D.C. have legalized medical marijuana use, and 11 states and Washington, D.C. have legalized recreational marijuana use. Complicating matters further, products containing CBD are now legal and easy to obtain. However, these products are not regulated by the FDA. Despite advertising themselves as free of THC, they often contain THC and result in a positive drug screen, creating a quagmire for employees and employers alike. This panel will discuss the current landscape of marijuana and the workplace, with a focus on recent technological advances in marijuana products and drug testing.
