Marijuana and Cannabis: Questions we need to ask

Downers Grove, IL. - Coventry, a leading provider of care and cost management solutions for workers' compensation, has released a new whitepaper entitled "Marijuana and Cannabis: Questions we need to ask."
Nearly a dozen states have approved cannabis for recreational use and more than two-thirds have signed off on medical marijuana. Marijuana's active chemical components are becoming more widespread, too. Cannabidiol (CBD) has popped up seemingly overnight in products from skin cream to candy to dog treats. Hemp already appears in thousands of commercial products. The number is likely to increase thanks to a recent loosening of restrictions on hemp cultivation. With so much going on around marijuana, it makes sense to review what we know and what it might mean for workers' compensation.
The environment around cannabis is changing. To read the whitepaper and find out more about what makes it imperative for those involved in the treatment of injured workers to keep up with the shifting rules and consider the questions that arise in the workplace around cannabis visit: www.coventrywcs.com/publications.
