Hello, and welcome to You’re Hired. My name is Lorne Epstein. I am a talent acquisition professional with over twenty years’ experience in the industry. You’re Hired is broadcast on WERA 96.7 from Arlington, VA and will include special guests as well as tips and tricks to help you in your career and life in general. I started You’re Hired as a way to discuss critical issues about jobs and careers and teach people how to have a rewarding, satisfying career.
The evolution of the legality of smoking marijuana has kept pace with the other social changes in our society. On today’s episode of You’re Hired we speak with our expert labor lawyer Jim Reidy and political director for NORML, Justin Strekal. We will explore the current laws and cultural shifts in how the workplace relates to employees who smoke marijuana.
Jim is a partner with Sheehan Phinney Bass & Green in Manchester New Hampshire where he is the chair their Labor and Employment Practice Group. Jim represents management in all manner of workplace issues. Most recently he was asked to comment on the workplace impact of changing marijuana laws.
Justin is the Political Director for NORML, where he serve as an advocate to end the federal prohibition of marijuana and to reform our nations laws to no longer treat marijuana consumers as second class citizens. Justin works with the Congressional Cannabis Caucus and is a strategist to NORML chapters.
