In this article you will see that Marijuana affects everyone differently. Today's marijuana is different than it was in the 70s, 80s and 90s.  Concentrations of THC varies wildly - flowers typically range in the 10-30% concentration and concentrates 60-90% or more.

 According to Department of Health and Human Services, Marijuana use can cause Lung and Heart disease just as cigarette use can.

Short term use can cause attention deficit order as well as impaired memory recall.

A great article by Fleet Owner.  In this article Kathryn Russo, attorney at Jackson Lewis, P.C., a workplace law firm shared some drug testing best ideas with members at a recent meeting.

Key points to consider:

  • Marijuana laws are changing.  
  • You should have a professional review your policy for both recreationally and medical marijuana.
  • No wiggle room if you have DOT drivers.  There is no accomodation for Marijuana (even if legal in your state) under the DOT rules and regulations.
  • If you are receiving Federal Funds you are subject to the federal Drug Free Workplace Act.

Please call Workplace Screening Intelligence at 800-338-5515 and let our experts review your policy or email today at info@workplacescreening.com
