Justin G. Smith, ShareholderWhat You Need To KnowSeth A. Lopour, Associate About Medical About Medical Marijuana in South Dakota*  

What Presented by Woods Fuller Schultz & Smith P.C.  

In November 2020, South Dakota voters approved the use of recreational and medical marijuana but the state legislature is now reviewing and voting on bills that leave us unsure what to expect. *To allow adequate time to cover the topic thoroughly, we have narrowed the focus of this meeting to address the legalization of medical marijuana.

Join us for our April meeting when attorneys Seth Lopour and Justin Smith from the Woods Fuller law firm help clarify how employers can handle the complicated and controversial issues that arise in the workplace with the legalization of medical marijuana.  They will bring us up-to-date on medical marijuana legislation in South Dakota and discuss how employers can manage pre-employment/random drug testing, workers' compensation, ADA accommodations, and other potential legal issues.
