In New York State alone it is now a unlawful to take disciplinary action against an employee's legal use of cannabis under state law.

The Cannabis Impairment Detection Workshop is designed to provide students with information and live examples of people impaired by cannabis and how that impairment can impact worksites in NYS. This intense workshop will offer a series of instructor -led technical lectures, proficiency assessments and learning labs. Utilizing the latest in Virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), we are able to simulate many safety sensitive jobsite conditions and safely observe the varying effects of cannabis/drug impairment in real time.
Cannabis Impairment Detection Workshops (CIDW) were originally, and for the most part still are, designed to instruct the advanced (DWI) enforcement officer. Building on those tried and tested methods of impairment recognition we move away from its strict judicial and prosecutorial applications, and streamlined it to meet the diverse, needs of occupational health and safety management.
With NYS slated to begin issuing dispensary licenses later this year, the availability and influx of legal cannabis consumption will be seen throughout many industries.
