Navigating Through the Weeds of Fla.’s Marijuana Law in the Workplace
In November 2016, Florida voters legalized the use of medical marijuana for individuals with certain “debilitating medical conditions,” such as HIV or AIDS, PTSD and cancer, via their vote to approve Amendment 2 to the state constitution.

This dichotomy leaves Florida employers in a grey area with respect to creation of workplace policies surrounding use of medical marijuana.
