Colorado Marijuana Market Funds Busts of Illegal Growers

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

DENVER (AP) — The first recreational pot market in the U.S. was set Thursday to notch another marijuana first when Colorado approves using marijuana taxes to fund police efforts to crack down on illegal growing operations.

A measure scheduled to be signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper sets aside nearly $6 million a year in Colorado marijuana tax revenue to reimburse police for investigating black-market marijuana activity that authorities say has increased since the state legalized recreational marijuana in 2012.

The fund was backed by police groups who complain that marijuana legalization has attracted illicit marijuana growers along with legal ones.

The bill was also backed by Colorado’s nascent marijuana industry amid complaints that illegal growing operations undercut prices of pot grown legally and give legalization a bad name.

There are now more American workers showing up to their job with drugs in their system than there have been in over a decade.

The report shows that Colorado and Washington, the country’s first two states to establish a system that allows adults to buy weed in a manner similar to beer, have experienced significant increases in workers testing positive for THC metabolites.

What Do Legalized Marijuana Laws Mean for HR Professionals?

Category: Tokers | Posted on Fri, June, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

As more states legalize cannabis with either medical or adult-use/recreational laws, the topic of cannabis use in the workplace is increasingly more timely.  What do legalized marijuana laws mean for HR professionals?  We recently posted an article about this that was specific to mental health professionals, but let’s explore what this means for the bigger picture of employers.

According to The Rochester Business Journal:

Some states, including Arizona and Delaware, prohibit an employer from terminating an employee due to a positive drug test for marijuana. Laws in Arizona, Delaware and New York allow employers to enforce workplace policies prohibiting employees from using drugs on the job. While not addressed in all state statutes, it seems very unlikely these laws would be interpreted to allow an employee to work while impaired by marijuana. But determining whether an employee is impaired on the job can be a challenge, as marijuana is metabolized differently than alcohol and current drug tests are unable to determine whether use occurred in prior hours or days.
