Chamber Getting into the Weeds

Dubuque business leaders met on Thursday for a Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce panel to clear up confusion about marijuana in the workplace. Recreational marijuana is now legal in Illinois. Just across the Mississippi River in Dubuque, it’s not. Molly Grover, President & CEO, says the event was designed to give information about how that’s putting employers in a difficult position on what’s allowed in their workplaces. One of the main points from Thursday’s panel is that employers need to figure out what their policies are. Darin Harmon, an attorney with Kintzinger, Harmon, Konrady, PLC, says it will be up to each business how they decide to handle each case.  Harmon says for Iowa employers there really is no gray area in the law.  The other panelists included Dubuque County Attorney C.J. May and Dubuque Police Chief Mark Dalsing.
