A  key component of the Federal Liberal party’s election mandate was the  legalization of recreational marijuana. While it is believed that a  fully functional legislative and regulatory scheme ending the  prohibition of cannabis will not be ready for some time, the prospects  of legalized cannabis in the workplace has some companies feeling more  than a little dazed and confused. But cannabis, at least in some  instances, is already legal and is already in our workplaces. In fact,  in 2014 it was estimated that there were 40,000 people in Canada with  valid "authorizations to possess" – a number that has been growing  rapidly. All of this begs the question: what are the risks and  challenges that cannabis presents to the workplace in a changing  legislative and cultural landscape?
