Individuals will soon have the ability to buy, use, grow, and possess cannabis. As a result, employers have numerous questions about what these legislative changes mean for their workplaces.

McMillan has published a special report entitled "McMillan (Chronic)le" which aims to address these questions to help your workplace navigate the decriminalization of cannabis. .
