    Marijuana usage.. and how it relates to MD, PA, VA and WVA laws. 

    “Over 30 states now have medical marijuana laws, including Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, despite the fact that marijuana remains a controlled substance under federal law.  The result is a set of conflicting obligations on employers and has become an increasing point of concern in their ability to manage and maintain a safe, efficient and effective workforce.  This seminar will focus on understanding how these laws impact the work environment and provide guidance on how to successfully navigate the gray areas of the law."
