ABA 2021 National Symposium on Technology in Labor & Employment Law

April 15, 2021 2:45pm3:45pm

Rebecca Stephens is a featured panelist at the ABA 2021 National Symposium on Technology in Labor & Employment Law virtual program, "Marijuana in the Workplace."

Details:
The 2021 National Symposium on Technology in Labor and Employment Law will feature programs by panelists representing management, union, employee and government perspectives on hot topics and cutting-edge technology issues in labor and employment law.

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 and 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. This panel will feature a scientist whose research focuses on marijuana and cannabis products for the largest marijuana company in the world, Canopy Growth Corp., as well as attorneys representing employee, employer and union perspectives.
