Medical Marijuana: How to Manage it in the Workplace

Dan Demers, Senior Manager of Strategic Business Development, CannAmm

Medical marijuana in the workplace is a rapidly emerging and highly contentious issue. Canada has undergone unprecedented changes in two decades, Health Canada has introduced changes allowing broader legal access to marijuana for medical purposes and legalization is on the horizon. The topic of marijuana is highly polarized, has evolved into multiple complex debates, and has left most employers in a fog, feeling overwhelmed and ultimately paralyzed by misinformation— a fog that will cost lives if not cleared. This session is aimed at helping employers understand these changes, implications to safety sensitive industries.

Roundtable Discussion

Challenges in the workplace…

  • Managing both medically authorized and legally accessible marijuana
  • Managing safety in safety sensitive industries
