Canada legalizes marijuana - US next

Canada has legalized marijuana, becoming the 2nd country to do so. With the realization about the war on drugs as a farce,Figure out ways to not only squash the illicit sale of drugs, but also increase the tax base. America's not far behind although the road to legalization is complex with the relationship between the state and federal governments. What we do know, however, is that employers will know need to think about ways to address the use of marijuana in the workplace. Policies need to be in place in order to address this impending shift in culture. For one, employers should approach the issue as they would abuse of opioids, prescription medication, or alcohol. Also, employers will have to create policy based on their particular region.
