Marijuana and Workplace Policies

Marijuana and Workplace Policies

Proposition 64, also known as the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, legalized the recreational use of marijuana for adults 21 years of age and older, imposed a 15 percent excise tax on marijuana sales and established a regulatory framework for the sale of marijuana.

Download CalChamber's free "Marijuana and Workplace Policies" white paper to read about Proposition 64's effect on workplace policies and practices plus our recommendations, and the recent discrimination protections.
