Worker shortage forcing employers to reconsider marijuana testing

Tammy Turner and Kerry Buffington, the co-owners of Kapstone Employment Services in Detroit, had to have a conversation with a client recently that they're not used to having.

"We actually had to go to them and say, 'Listen, this is not being consistent with the labor market now. Marijuana is legal and you're passing up on good talent,' " Turner remembers telling the client.

Turner said they were interviewing candidates for open positions at this company, and staff at their employment agency ask candidates whether they can pass a drug test as a part of their routine questions. She said, more often than not, candidates are honest and will say whether they would test positive for marijuana.

Medical cannabis lottery delayed for appeal in Rhode Island

State regulators say the lottery to award licenses to operate six new medical cannabis facilities has been delayed due to an ongoing appeal of a rejected lottery applicant.

The administrative appeal first delayed the lottery in the spring and now it will not happen the first week of August either, the Providence Journal reported.

Matthew Santacroce, chief of the Office of Cannabis Regulation within the Department of Business Regulation, said Tuesday that the lottery will not be scheduled until the appeal has run its course and it remains unclear how long that could take.

The new facilities will be dispersed around the state in six regions, joining the dispensaries in Providence, Portsmouth and Warwick.

Some communities opt out of marijuana dispensaries, citing lack of state guidance

In mid-June, the village of Fayetteville asked residents, “Do you think we should allow stores that sell pot?”

“There’s still no control board or agency," village Mayor Mark Olson said in a recent interview. "The state left without making any rules. I’m not a marijuana user, and none of the other board members are, so it’s really a tough decision to make and know what’s right.”

He says his answer is "no," and that the members of the village’s Board of Trustees agree. That said, the village is going to leave the decision up to the public.

“We have village elections in early March, so we’ll have one public hearing, another public hearing and then we’ll vote about whether to opt in or opt out,” said Olsen.
