Adam R. Dolan, co-chair of Goldberg Segalla’s Cannabis and Hemp Law group and member of the firm’s Trucking and Transportation group, was quoted in an article for CCJ Digital discussing how changes to marijuana laws could affect the trucking industry.
In “As Marijuana Laws Change, Does Trucking Need To Adapt?” Adam talks about the problems the trucking industry may face if its strict no-marijuana-use policies aren’t debated. He also discusses the high turnover rates for truckers, the societal shift in the way cannabis is used for medical purposes, and the reclassification of cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cannabis to be viewed more as a prescription medication to treat serious illnesses or recovery.
“By saying no person can use marijuana, even if they have a medical recommendation for it, you’re cutting yourself off from such a large pool of applicants that could provide the industry with much-needed manpower,” Adam says.
