Changing state laws, federal ban make marijuana policy hazy for Georgia employers

As 2020 begins, 11 states, along with the District of Columbia, have legalized some adult recreational marijuana use. Twenty-six states, plus the District of Columbia, have decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana. In Georgia, as in 33 other states, legalized cannabis use is limited to medical marijuana applications.
