Regardless of your own personal feelings about marijuana, It's important to stay current on the state of the drug laws in your area, as well as your company's individual policies on drug use — especially if you're a manager. Keeping up to date with policies, whether you agree with them or not, is a crucial first step to understanding the way the changes impact your company and your team.

Two-hundred Delawareans authorized to use marijuana for medical reasons now must wait until June before they're able to legally buy the drug.

Delaware's only dispensary, First State Compassion Center, near Wilmington, was scheduled to open this month. But construction delays pushed off the opening until June, says Mark Lally, the center's president.

The latest delay is relatively minor, partly caused by electrical issues and the complications of growing marijuana from seed, Lally said.
