When marijuana was legalized in the United States, many employees mistakenly thought it was acceptable to use cannabis before or even during work. Employees inappropriately compared it to tobacco and felt they could possess it at work and smoke it on their break. As Canada proceeds with cannabis legalization it is important for workplaces to clarify the rules related to cannabis possession and use relating to the workplace.
