Medical Marijuana Update

Printer-friendly version

Speaker:John J. Sarno

New Jersey was the first state in the region and the 14th in the nation to legalize the use of marijuana for medical reasons.  The law permits patients diagnosed with severe illnesses to have access to marijuana distributed through state-monitored dispensaries. The law was enacted in 2010 and since then a critical mass of court cases around the country have been decided.  Clearly, medical marijuana is now presenting dilemmas for employers, such as what happens when a job applicant has failed a pre-employment drug test but produces a legally obtained prescription to use marijuana? Or what happens when an employee returns from a disability leave with a prescription?  

Join John Sarno for this update of the New Jersey Marijuana Use Act in the context of the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
