S2E2 - Work and School

 

Episode Description

The leaves are changing.  Fall is here.  What do you do if an employee at your job site is coming to work high?  How much cannabis should a school bus driver be using?  Teachers and students - which one should be allowed to use medicinal cannabis?  Are you less fit for work if you are on Tylenol #3's or cannabis?  We talk to Floyd Martens, a local and national School Board representative and Wendy Hofford a human resources and safety expert.  Our My Cannabis story is about a sports injury.
