Due to the proliferation of state and local laws legalizing marijuana and protecting off-duty use, employers are struggling with whether it makes sense to continue to drug test for marijuana.  Earlier this month I was privileged to record a podcast with the Disability Management Employer Coalition on the topic of “To Test or Not: Employers Question Value of Including Marijuana in Drug Panels.”  In this 30-minute podcast, we discuss the pros and cons of drug testing for marijuana and the legal implications of doing so.  You can listen to the podcast here:  www.dmec.org/podcast.

In addition, I wrote a related article that was published in the July/August issue of @work magazine, which you can find here:  Compliance Showcase: Legalized Marijuana in the Workplace – Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC).
