Medical and Recreational Marijuana in the United States: What's the Story?

Program Number: 2879

Program Date: 11/09/2018


With Fifty States having different positions and laws pertaining to the legal use of marijuana for medical and recreational purposes, some states and localities decriminalizing it, and the federal government still outlawing it; it is confusing to clearly understand where our country generally sits on the issue. This program will highlight the status of laws among the states, a brief history of the possible reason for marijuana being illegal in the first place, and the general rules and regulations of laws legalizing marijuana for recreational purposes and for medical purposes. In addressing medical marijuana, the program will touch upon the impact medical marijuana is having in the workplace from both the employee and employer perspective. The medical marijuana portion will focus on Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act.
