The legalization of marijuana has radically, and permanently, changed the business landscape in many states across the country.  The challenges presented by large workforces growing, manufacturing, and distributing products that the federal government considers entirely illegal will form the basis of this fast paced and entertaining presentation.  We will focus on issues and war stories fresh from the cannabis industry workplace, facts that can complicate an investigation in any workplace where marijuana use or abuse is suspected, things you need to know if you’re pitching to marijuana businesses, and other weirdness investigators will face in the era of "legal weed."  MCLE pending.  

Speakers: Kevin Paul and Dean Heizer
