New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission Issues Long-Awaited Guidance on Establishing Workplace Impairment

In February 2021, the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory, Enforcement Assistance, and Marketplace Modernization Act (“NJCREAMMA”) legalized the use of recreational marijuana for adults over the age of 21. As a result, while NJCREAMMA still allows employers to prohibit employees from using, being impaired by, or possessing cannabis in the workplace, employers can no longer take adverse action against an employee solely because an individual has used, or not used, cannabis off duty. Given that cannabinoid metabolites can result in a positive drug test even if the employee is not currently under the influence of cannabis, NJCREAMMA modified the term “drug test” to include both (1) a scientifically reliable objective testing method and (2) a physical evaluation conducted by an individual certified as a Workplace Impairment Recognition Expert. However, with no WIRE certification standards yet in place, employers have had no clear guidance on what objective signs and symptoms to look for in a physical evaluation to support an adverse employment action against an employee for working while impaired – until now.

The Devastating Impact of Bankruptcy to Crypto Investors

Blockchain is one of the fastest evolving, controversial and important technologies of the modern era. Diverse industries recognize the benefits of a decentralized distributed ledger, one whose data is both highly secure and readily accessible to anyone with an internet connection. New blockchain-related companies are created daily, each offering its own cryptocurrency “coin” with its own specific purpose. The meteoric rise in value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies over the last several years has facilitated tremendous interest in the blockchain sphere, not just for companies or government entities that see the benefit of the technology, but also for the institutional and individual investor who sees the potential for massive profits, returns far exceeding a typical stock trader’s ten or even twenty percent return at the end of the year. Cryptocurrencies, in contrast, have increased in value by one-thousand or even ten thousand percent on a regular basis. With such huge investment potential, cryptocurrency may understandably blind investors to the very real risk of a bankruptcy filing, particularly those lacking the tech-savviness to understand and account for the underlying fundamentals of the technology. Recently, that bankruptcy risk has come to roost for crypto investors.
