While the recent expansion of cannabis laws will certainly affect society as a whole, the effect that this societal change will have on the workplace presents unique challenges for employers.  New Jersey, like the majority of states, has loosened its laws to permit the use of medical cannabis. In addition, many have speculated that the passage of Senate Bill 2703, currently known as the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory and Expungement Aid Modernization Act (“SB 2703”), is imminent, which will legalize adult-use cannabis. Although cannabis with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels in excess of 0.3 percent is still classified as a Schedule I substance under federal law, the ever-changing legal landscape at the state level requires employers to be cognizant of their policies and practices to ensure up-to-date compliance with the law.
