Sarah E. Mullen Discusses Marijuana Legalization in Missouri with KSDK Reporter Brent Solomon

Lewis Rice member Sarah E. Mullen spoke with KSDK reporter Brent Solomon on the implications for Missouri's Amendment 3 in the workplace. Missouri Amendment 3 legalizes recreational marijuana in the State and makes several significant changes to the State’s existing medical marijuana laws. In the interview, Sarah corroborates that marijuana can still be prohibited in the workplace, and that workers can't be under the influence at work. She also discusses certain hiring practices that may need to be revisited by employers.
