Regardless of where your state and city stand, now is the time for credit unions to prepare for the legal, regulatory, and organizational challenges posed by cannabis. Effective policies & procedures are at the heart of workplace cannabis management. Best practices call for the creation, implementation, and enforcement of cannabis policies and training programs governing medical and recreational use by employees and job applicants.
