Print

Although marijuana remains illegal under U.S. federal law, the drug is increasingly becoming legalized throughout the states. Four states within the U.S. have completely legalized marijuana, and many others are putting the issue on their ballots.

As marijuana moves into a grey area in terms of legality, we must ask: How does marijuana affect an employers’ ability to create a safe and efficient working environment and to hire talented and qualified employees?

The short answer is that marijuana legalization will affect these business issues. The long answer is in the white paper Workplace Impacts of Marijuana Legalization, provided to us by our Partners at Assurex Global. By reading the white paper, you will learn:

  • Which U.S. states have and have not legalized the drug
