Treat marijuana like alcohol? New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission issues guidance for workplacesPosted by On

The New Jersey
Cannabis Regulatory Commission has issued guidance for workplaces, and state
officials are suggesting employers treat marijuana like alcohol.

The news comes
as a first step toward formulating and approving standards for Workplace
Impairment Recognition Expert certifications.

It’s meant to
support employers’ right to create and maintain
safe work environments and to affirm employees’ right to due process.

The guidance
iterates that employees cannot be acted against solely due to the presence of
cannabis in their body, among other things, but employers have the right to
drug test on reasonable suspicion of impairment.

“Striking a
balance between workplace safety and work performance and adult employees’
right to privacy and to consume cannabis during their off hours is possible,”
says Jeff Brown, NJ-CRC’s executive director. “We have been doing that with
alcohol without thought.”

The New Jersey
Cannabis Regulatory Commission establishes and enforces the rules and
regulations governing the licensing, testing, cultivation, purchasing and
selling of cannabis in the state.
