Marijuana and Beyond: Critical Updates for Your Drug Testing Program

Back to Blog

When we hold our popular Keeping Up with Compliance webinar sessions with Asurint General Counsel Kelly Uebel, we’re always (and we mean always) asked about marijuana use and the workplace.  

We get it. The landscape has changed rapidly—from 2012 when recreational cannabis was first legalized in Colorado and Washington to today, when it’s been legalized for medicinal use in 37 states (plus three territories and the District of Columbia) and legalized recreationally by 21 states (plus two territories and the District of Columbia). Oregon, and now Colorado, have even legalized substances other than cannabis.  

Given this explosion of legislation, it’s difficult to know what’s legal—and feasible—regarding candidate drug screening. And employers are confused about random drug testing, accident follow-up, and other practices. 

New Webinar Covers Key Topics

Once again, Asurint is here to help with our newest webinar, Marijuana and Beyond: Critical Updates for Your Drug Testing Program

This is your chance to dive deep into drug testing-related topics. Marc Bertrand, Asurint’s Director of Drug Testing, joins Kelly Uebel to discuss: 

  • COVID-19 and the lingering impacts on drug testing
  • Marijuana and the midterm elections—what happened and what does it mean?
  • ​​​​​Key legislative and litigation developments you really need to know about.
