Cannabis in the workplace: What does it actually mean to be impaired?


Cannabis legalization is upon us but it’s hard to feel good about it when we are forcing medical marijuana patients like Ellaine Farrell to take opioids instead of cannabis to deal with her pain.

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) subway operator has recently been forced to switch back to opioids from the CBD oil she has been using to treat her pain from two herniated disks in her lower back. Otherwise, she was told by her bosses, she would no longer be able to work for the TTC.

Toronto’s transit provider has had a controversial drug-testing program in place since 2011, the result of a fatal collision involving a TTC bus driver who was later charged with negligence and cannabis possession.
