Demystifying Decriminalized Marijuana

Should employers keep marijuana on their drug testing panels?

Should employers keep marijuana on their drug testing panels? If it's removed then how do employers ensure that their workforce is not coming to work under the influence? 

The changing landscape of state laws and marijuana's increased acceptance and use have created a perfect storm of confusion for employers and their workplace drug testing programs.
