"Medical Marijuana: How the new law will affect your business"

Summary presentation: When the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment (AMMA) was passed last fall, it appeared to create more questions than answers for employers. The AMMA prohibits employees from ingesting marijuana or coming to work “under the influence” of marijuana. Yet the AMMA failed to address key issues for employer compliance, such as defining “under the influence.” Cross, Gunter, Witherspoon, & Galchus, P.C. recognized these employer compliance issues, and played a key role in drafting a bill to clarify the employment provisions of the AMMA. On March 29, 2017, the Governor signed the bill into law. The new law created key definitions and clarifies how employers should implement their drug testing policies. In this presentation, I will discuss how employers can update their substance abuse policies and job descriptions for compliance with the new medical marijuana law.
