2. Reasonable Accommodations for at Home Marijuana Usage - Attorney Mark Attorri from Devine Millimet will present on a NH Court case regarding whether a NH employer is required to accommodate an at-home medical marijuana user as an employee by granting an exemption to the employer’s drug-free workplace policy. The employee is claiming violation of the NH anti-discrimination statute, arguing the employer was obligated to accommodate his at-home use of marijuana.
