Medical Marijuana + The Ohio Workplace

Ohio Chamber of Commerce, Labor & Employment Law Committee

Speaking to the Ohio Chamber of Commerce on April 5, Luis discussed several issues related to employment and medical marijuana. He detailed what the OMMCP does not do, such as how it does not require an employer to permit or accommodate an employee's use, or prohibit an employer from establishing and enforcing a drug testing policy, drug-free workplace policy, or zero-tolerance drug policy. He also highlighted other employment concerns, such as how the Worker’s Compensation Bureau will not pay for medical marijuana, and briefly reviewed the medical marijuana industry, looking at topics from sales figures to collegiate cannabis courses.
