In this Thought Leaders in Health Law® video, Paulina Grabczak, Gail Javitt, and Yulian Shtern, attorneys in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, are joined by Nathaniel Glasser, a Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, to holistically look at the risks companies face as the restrictions on the use of medical and recreational marijuana are relaxed in an increasing number of states across the country.

This video discusses the following:

  • The dichotomy of state and federal law on the use of marijuana
  • The risks these new state laws have created for providers, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers as the health care industry aims to deliver medical marijuana to more patients
  • The implications that the use of medical marijuana has on the workplace and how employers can evaluate the state of play where they operate to properly assess risk and implement the best approach to mitigate risk
  • The importance of due diligence and regulatory compliance as more transactional opportunities related to marijuana open up for businesses across industries
  • The recent federal laws and guidance that apply to hemp- and cannabidiol-based products
