John Martin, in collaboration with Brown & Brown Insurance of Pennsylvania, will present “Weed Better Talk: Understanding the Legal Impact of Medical Marijuana on Pennsylvania Employers” via webinar on August 22, 2019.  Employers in Pennsylvania understandably continue to struggle with how they are supposed to address an employee’s use of medical marijuana, which is now lawful under state law, but remains unlawful under federal law.  John has counseled clients on these issues since before the medical marijuana law went into effect here in Pennsylvania, and he will provide some much-needed insight and answers into the questions that all employers are currently asking.  For more information on this and other webinars hosted by Brown & Brown Insurance of Pennsylvania, click here: https://bbofpa.com/webinars/
