Cannabis industry growth potential for 2023


Cannabis industry growth potential for 2023

Washington Senate approves bill to protect job applicants who use cannabis from discrimination

Marijuana Moment reports that the Washington State Senate has passed a bill that would protect most job candidates from being discriminated against for using cannabis outside of the workplace.

According to the publication, the legislation notes that most drug tests detect only THC metabolites, which can remain in a person’s system for weeks after using cannabis.

However, Marijuana Moment highlights that the protection would apply only to pre-employment drug tests and workers could still be fired for a positive cannabis test that occurs after they’re hired.

Senator Derek Stanford (D) stated: “This will allow for more people to apply for jobs without having to worry that they’re going to be screened out in that hiring process. When people are using legal substances like cannabis away from work, we don’t think that should be a barrier to just applying for the job.”


Will mass layoffs help or hinder the struggling cannabis industry?

MJ Biz Daily asks, will widespread layoffs in the North American cannabis industry be an effective cost-cutting tool – or will they do more damage in an already challenging environment?

The publication reports that Jeffrey Pfeffer, a Stanford Graduate School of Business professor, thinks layoffs are a bad decision, suggesting that cannabis companies should instead consider alternatives such as salary reductions across the workforce or upgrading worker skills.

Pfeffer’s research found that tech layoffs, for example, typically fail to increase stock prices, boost productivity, improve market share and increase revenue.
