Sheryl Smolkin interviewed on CHCH Square Off about medical marijuana in the workplace

March 25, 2o14

As of April 1 people who require the drug for a legitimate health reason will only need a doctor’s prescription, instead of a license from Health Canada.

According to Health Canada estimates, Canada’s “legal marijuana supply industry” could reach $1.3 billion in sales by 2024, with an estimated 450,000 Canadians eventually becoming users of medical marijuana.

The big issue for the workplace is that until now so few people had medical marijuana licenses that companies could have zero tolerance policies for the use of certain drugs at work.

In this video clip, Sheryl Smolkin is interviewed on CHCH Square Off about hte workplace implications of more employees with prescriptions for medical marijuana in the workplace.
