The debate of the Federal illegality of medical and recreational marijuana versus marijuana use in states where marijuana has been legalized has raised questions on how this affects the workplace. The conflicting intersection between State and Federal law has made it challenging for employers to carry out their legal obligations.   As a result of the legal landscape surrounding marijuana being dynamic and changing quickly, employers must navigate a labyrinth of Federal and State statutes and court decisions when developing substance-abuse policies and drug-testing practices around marijuana use. Now, more than ever, it is crucial for employers to be vigilant about this developing area of the law in order to navigate various employment issues carefully. Employers need to be aware of their rights and obligations with regard to marijuana and workplace safety. PRIORITY:3END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
