to decriminalize marijuana. Attendees will learn about the recent legalization in Ohio of CBD
(Cannabidiol) oil and its implications for businesses, school districts, hospital systems and other
employers, as well as new developments in testing and the impact of COVID-19 on the use of marijuana and
workplace testing.
