Legalising Cannabis and What it Could Mean for Construction Industry
Cannabis has been around since the dawn of time and has been used for both medicinal and recreational purposes. As discussions regarding the legalisation of cannabis continue in New Zealand, what impact could it have on our Industry?
Are cannabis users unfairly targeted at work?
With unemployment at record lows, more people on the jobseeker benefit than ever before and an acknowledged shortage of skilled tradespeople, a serious question must be asked: Are some capable people being kept out of work unfairly owing to their occasional use of cannabis? It’s a question well worth posing, not the least because cannabis metabolites can stay in the system long after impairing effects wear off.
Open letter to Chloe Swarbrick
Dear Ms. Swarbrick,
RE: The efficacy of cannabis testing using oral fluid samples
As an individual deeply involved in drug and alcohol impairment detection, I was surprised and very disappointed in the views you expressed during your recent interview with Jack Tame on the topic of cannabis law reform.
