New Survey from Colorado Focuses on Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana

One of the biggest debates that swirl around the concept of cannabis legalization is how it will affect the number of people who are driving while under the influence of marijuana.

Can Employers Still Drug Test if Cannabis is Legal in My State?

The spread of marijuana legalization, while ameliorating many problems, still leaves some unsolved.

If you live in a state where even recreational use and sales are...
