Chrissy Buteas, NJBIA Chief Government Affairs Officer

“We are disappointed that the enabling legislation signed today to create an adult-use cannabis market falls short on allowing businesses to effectively maintain drug-free workplaces, as they are essential for certain safety occupations.

“By relying on certified experts whose training is not based on scientific standards, the legislation simply does not go far enough to maintain workplace safety. NJBIA was glad to hear recognition by our legislators today that there is a lack of workplace provisions in the current bills. We look forward to working with the Legislature and the Governor’s office on cleanup legislation to address the safety concerns of the employer communities.”
