UCalgary hosts training on workplace cannabis use

August 3, 2018

The University of Calgary will be hosting Cannabis at Work, an Alberta company that will help teach employers how to manage recreational and medical marijuana use, CBC reports. The company will hold courses on how to tell if a worker is impaired, as well as the implications of drug testing. “It's to help mitigate the risks for companies, if they have a medical cannabis user, or if they run into recreational cannabis users in the workplace,” said Karen Stokke, Learning Manager for Cannabis at Work. A recent survey by the Conference Board of Canada has reportedly found that more than half of companies are concerned about the implications of cannabis legislation at the workplace. CBC
