Description

Reefer Madness, Texas Style:  What Has Changed, and What Has Remained the Same?*

Presented by Steve Roppolo, Regional Managing Partner, Fisher Phillips LLP

Marijuana is legal in California, Oregon, Colorado and Washington. While the Texas Legislature has not gone so far as to legalize marijuana for recreational use, it has liberalized laws governing “compassionate use” and has revamped laws governing hemp and the non-hallucinogenic CBD, creating some confusion among Texas employers. This program will answer questions about the current state of Texas cannabis law and will explore what may be just over the horizon.

PRESENTER BIO STEVE ROPPOLO is managing partner in his firm's Houston office. He has extensive jury trial and arbitration experience litigating all types of employment claims in federal and state courts on behalf of employers. He has defended companies of various sizes in cases involving allegations of sexual harassment, discrimination, defamation, breach of employment contract, and other employment torts. He helps employers avoid employment litigation by conducting training for managers and developing policies and procedures designed to minimize exposure to litigation claims. Steve is Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
