The Jeff Cumberbatch Column – Medical Marijuana in the Workplace

The proposal by the government to legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes is likely to have a significant impact on employment relations in general and the workplace in particular.

To date, the local proposal for legalization does not contemplate recreational marijuana use but, given the likely concomitant increase in the availability of the substance with legalization, it seems unlikely that there will not be at least an unofficial relaxation in the rigour of enforcement of the current legal prohibitions on the possession, supply and handling of marijuana. This fact, at least, should spare human resource professionals from having to distinguish in the workplace between those who consume marijuana for therapeutic purposes and those who do so merely for recreation.

And while there has been, as yet, no draft legislation on the matter, it is possible to make an educated guess that the law will allow those who are prescribed marijuana by a certified medical practitioner to obtain controlled cannabis from licensed providers or to produce a quantity for personal use or, perhaps, even to designate a provider. In this context, the key to legality will be the lawful prescription.

In my view, the prospect of medical marijuana being obtained from brick and mortar stores is still a way off, but we are a culture that is, if nothing else, inured to the commercial sale of products and this phenomenon will doubtless soon reach the supply of medical marijuana.

It is foreseen that the main impacts on the employment relation will be in the areas of discrimination, occupational safety and health, and employee entitlements.

In the context of discrimination, the critical issue will not arise so much in the classical sense of affording different treatment to similarly situated employees, but rather in the accommodation to be afforded to those workers who have been prescribed marijuana as part of their medical regimen.

Unfortunately, to date, Barbados has not enacted a general anti-discrimination statute that would cover the private sector. We have allowed ourselves to be content with the constitutional guarantee that, because of the state action doctrine, is of benefit to state employees only.

There is a provision covering anti-discrimination at work in the text of Protocol VI, where the Social Partners agree that a national employment policy should “ensure the freedom of choice of employment in an environment void of any form of discrimination [emphasis mine], and some clauses of the Employment Rights Act 2012 treat as automatically unfair a dismissal where the reason for it is determined to be “that the employee is or was a disabled person…in circumstances where the employer could have reasonably been expected to offer the employee alternative employment…” or where the dismissal is based on any of the traditional non-permissible grounds such as race, colour, gender, age, marital status political opinion, national extraction or social or indigenous origin, trade union membership and activity, pregnancy, HIV seropositivity or affliction with any other life threatening illness, or disease.

In spite of the impressive protection provided by this list, it does not cover an act of discrimination falling short of dismissal, so that an employee who is not accommodated by an employer in order to treat his or her “disability” with marijuana would have little recourse under this statute.

Moreover, while the text of the Protocol quoted above would seem at first blush, to be beneficial to a medically compromised employee, it is not a legally enforceable document and, in any event, the right is not individualized nor is its language contractual in nature.

So far as employee entitlements are concerned, one nascent issue will be whether medical plans by the employer will cover the cost of obtaining medical marijuana. This is essentially a matter for agreement between the relevant parties; the employer and the insurance company. While there is no immediate legal bar to such coverage, the matter is one dependent on the voluntariness of the entities involved and it is recognized that not everyone will be keen on the use of marijuana, even when consumed for medical purposes only. This should be a bargaining chip for workers’ organizations during negotiations.

Finally, since a prescription for medical marijuana does not entitle an employee to compromise the safety of anyone at the workplace, including themselves, employers may want to know if they have the right to test employees to detect impairment in the employee.

This is a rather complex issue; first, the legality of the right to test at all. While this may be conceded as implied into the managerial imperative in safety sensitive sectors such as the operation of heavy vehicles or machinery; it becomes purely a matter of contract and human rights law in other contexts. To this end, the local employer should enter into dialogue with the recognized bargaining agent, if there is one, to have the right to test incorporated in individual contracts of employment. Alternatively, the employer might wish to publish a workplace policy that provides for testing where there is a reasonable suspicion of impairment that poses a threat to the safety culture of the workplace.

Under the Safety and Health at Work Act 2005, the employer has a duty to use reasonably practicable measures to ensure the health safety and welfare of employees and the safety of lawful visitors to the workplace. Section 7(4) of that Act also mandates the employer to prepare, revise as may be appropriate and publish to employees a statement of general policy with respect to workplace safety. It may be argued and is submitted that this policy is the touchstone for employers to regulate the use of medical marijuana in workplace relations.

Second, there is no bright line for what constitutes impairment because of marijuana use. It is notorious that tolerance levels vary from individual to individual, to the quality and amount of the substance consumed. Perhaps the definition of impairment should be left up to competently advised drafters of the legislation to prescribe what would constitute necessary indicia for an employer to have sufficient grounds to test an employee.

A blessed and happy long Easter weekend to all my readers!

    Good morn Dean Jeff and greetings of this high holy Christian reflection period to you also.

    As noted above the essay is thoroughly presented and brings all key issues for us locals to the fore…I have no queries there….Bear with me as I go off on an absolutely unrelated legal matter.

    This last week saw the release of a political investigation on crimes or non crimes by elected officials and your expertise on a few powerful sentences is sought.

    It was noted by US AG Barr that if the elected official didn’t commit an underlying crime then its impossible to obstruct justice by firing or thwarting the actions of a law enforcement officer ; however the chief attorney of that exhaustive investigation noted that “The injury to the integrity of the justice system is the same regardless of whether a person committed an underlying wrong.”

    So I query of you (for general discussion only of course) can an elected official let’s says a PM, be guilty of obstruction of justice if he or she transfers (effectively terminating services) of lets say a Supervisor of Insurance to thwart legitimate actions into an investigation of possible improprieties … although that PM has the legal right to make that transfer and essentially has not been charged with an underlying crime?

    Furthermore, is our justice system not being wronged and losing its integrity when irregularities are well defined in annual Auditor General’s reports and nothing is seemingly done to address those glaring issues?

    When we read that “Our investigation found multiple acts by the [elected official] that were capable of exerting undue influence over law enforcement investigations” we scoff at this US thing and think of some specific acts of commission re obstruction but are multiple acts of ommission to ACT not as damning !

    Are our politicians indictiable on an “obstruction of justice* charge for their multiple acts of ommission?

    Your article isn’t clear on what you mean by ‘Medical Marijuana’, are you referring to the use of the plant i.e. leaves or by products of the plant e.g. pills, sprays, liquids etc.

    There is a fine line between the use of using marijuana for medical reasons and the use of marijuana for recreational purposes.
    If a patient tells his Doctor that he is suffering from debilitating pain which disappears when he smokes marijuana, how would a Doctor know if the patient is speaking the truth or is just using a ploy to score some weed legally?

    In Toronto where the use of recreational marijuana is legal, the Police Brass have adopted a rule that states none of their personnel can report for duty within 28 days of using recreational marijuana, this basically prohibits the use of marijuana by the officers.

    The Court will probably be the final arbiter of this rule.

    Ilhan Omar Wants Marijuana to Be Legalized at Federal Level

    Published 21 April 2019 (2 hours 4 minutes ago)

    Congresswoman Ilhan Omar wants cannabis to be legalized nationally and clear criminal records of people imprisoned due to marijuana.

    Congresswoman Ilhan Omar wants the United States to legalize marijuana at a federal level. Cannabis has been legalized in more than half the country mainly for medical use but it is still outlawed by the federal government.

    Omar not only wants legalization of weed but also to clear criminal records of those imprisoned on charges related to marijuana.

    “Cannabis criminalization disproportionately impacts communities of color. We must finally legalize cannabis nationwide and expunge records for those incarcerated for cannabis-related offenses,” Omar wrote on Twitter Saturday.

    Research by the American Civil Liberties Union revealed that between 2001 and 2010, Black people were more vulnerable to arrests and marijuana-related charges than white people despite being used by a similar number of people in both groups.

    Cannabis is still considered a Schedule I drug at the federal level in the U.S. which allows the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to arrest people and close down businesses for violating federal law.

    THEY CANT JUST COMPILE THIS INFO EASY SO MAN
    BUT IF YA TALKING BOUT DRUGS YA GOT TO KNOW AND TALK AND TINK BOUT THESE THINGS

    I ONCE ASKED A NEW DRUG REP WHO CAME AROUND AND PRESENTED ME WITH A LOSENZE, WHILE LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW “WHAT IS THE HALF LIFE?”

    HER PARTNER CRIED OUT YA CANT ASK HER THE HALF LIFE OF A LOSENZE

    I REPLIED “SHE NEEDS TO KNOW THAT THE HALF LIFE OF A DRUG IS IMPORTANT”

    The chemical structure of a drug allows us predict the drugs physical and chemical properties and behavior, and allows us to determine how we should proceed to make improvements, or add to drugs in this class.

    Clearly we will not go around committing to memory the chemical structures of all the preparations we use.
    But it helps when some one presents to us with some vials of medication, and the labels state ****lol or ****tidine or ***pril.
    We immediately realize that the patient is taking respectively, a Beta blocker, an H2 antagonist for a stomach ailment, or an ACE inhibitor.
    Clearly too, you can see that this simple information can give us valuable information in our history taking efforts.

    The Mechanism of action tells us HOW the drug works.
    It is the mechanism or way by which a drug exerts is effect
    This is very important information because it allows us to make intelligent decisions for employing the drug from a physiological perspective.

    Beta agonists activate the beta receptors of the smooth muscle of the bronchi, linked by an activating enzyme GS, to result in stimulation of adenyl cyclase and increased camp in these muscle cells. The increase in cAMP results in a powerful bronchodilator response.

    The Methylxanthines produce bronchodilatation by inhibiting phosphodiesterase(PDE), the enzyme that degrades camp to AMP.

    Ipratropium competitively blocks muscarinic receptors in the respiratory airway to effectively prevent the bronchoconstriction mediated by vagal discharge.

    Disodium cromoglycolate (Cromolyn) appears to decrease the release of mediators such as leukotrienes and histamine from mast cells in order to prevent bronchoconstriction in the airways (its effect).

    By binding to intracellular receptors glucocorticoids activate glucocorticoid response elements (GREs) in the nucleus, resulting in synthesis of substances that prevent the full expression of inflammation and allergy.

    Zafirlukast is an antagonist at the LTD4 and LTE4 leukotriene receptor sites.

    NOW ALL OF THESE DRUG CLASSES ARE USED TO OVERCOME BRONCHOCONSTRICTION IN ASTHMATICS…………
    BUT ALL OF THEM WORK BY DIFFERENT MECHANISMS OF ACTION

    Knowledge of the method of adsorption ( the method by which the drugs gets into the circulation to exert an effect) allows us to use the appropriate route of administration of the drug to achieve our particular immediate aim.

    Knowledge of the method of the drugs distribution and thus its concentration or drug levels in the circulation at any point in time, allows us to decide the drug effectively, and specifically.
    For example, if an antibiotic seems to have an affinity for adsorption or distribution in the brain, and tends to concentrate there we would choose that drug preferentially in treating infections of the brain tissue.
    If a drug is concentrated in the bone, it would facilitate treatment of bone conditions for which the drug might be indicated

    Knowledge of the drugs metabolism allows us to chose the drug preferentially above others in a particular indication.
    We would not exhibit drugs that are metabolized preferentially in the liver, if the patient has a liver ailment, nor would we use drugs that are metabolized preferentially in the kidney, if the patient has a kidney problem

    Knowledge of the drugs excretion (the route in which the drug is cleared form the body ) allows us to make an intelligent choice about drugs in a particular drug class for a specific patient.
    If the drug is excreted by the kidney and the patient has a renal problem, we might chose preferentially its competitor in the same class which is not excreted via the kidneys mainly.
    On the other hand we might use a drug that is excreted exclusively by the kidney into the urine for a bladder condition.

    The Onset of action of a drug is the amount of time it takes a drug to begin working.
    The onset of action of a drug may be influenced by its route of administration.
    Drugs given intravenously generally have a more rapid onset than drugs taken orally, since oral agents must be absorbed and pass through the gut before entering the blood stream

    The local anaesthetic Marcaine has both a longer onset and duration of action than Lignocaine. Consequently, whereas lignocaine might be preferred in procedures where a short onset and a short duration is required marcaine is preferred for longer procedures , simply because though marcaine has a longer onset of action than lignocaine (20 mins for marcaine compared to 5 mins for lignocaine), the longer duration of action of marcaine (hours compared to minutes for lignocaine) makes marcaine the preferred agent for longer surgical procedures.

    Here we see the benefits of appreciating the concept of both onset of action, and duration of action

  • FDA approves first drug comprised of an active ingredient derived from marijuana to treat rare, severe forms of epilepsy

    For Immediate Release

    June 25, 2018
    Release

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Epidiolex (cannabidiol) [CBD] oral solution for the treatment of seizures associated with two rare and severe forms of epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, in patients two years of age and older. This is the first FDA-approved drug that contains a purified drug substance derived from marijuana. It is also the first FDA approval of a drug for the treatment of patients with Dravet syndrome.

    CBD is a chemical component of the Cannabis sativa plant, more commonly known as marijuana. However, CBD does not cause intoxication or euphoria (the “high”) that comes from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

    It is THC (and not CBD) that is the primary psychoactive component of marijuana.

    @Dpd, a most intriguing inquiry, The criminal offense of obstruction of justice requires both an effective actus reus (an act that can achieve the desired criminal objective) and a mens rea (a criminal intention to achieve that objective). In your hypothesis, the prosecutor would have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the removal was effected with the criminal intent to avoid the legal investigation.

    This might be very difficult to establish however, since the mere coincidence does not imply that there was a criminal intention, and, it is said the devil himself knows not the intention off man!

    The PM does not need to have been charged with a criminal offence in order to obstruct the inexorable march of justice.

    It is not all about him or her!.

    i am saying that they need to study the drugs thoroughly

    When I first studied Pharmacology in 75- 76, it was then thought that the benzodiazepines (prototype diazepam i.e Valium) were not addictive, and so this drug class superceded and replaced the barbiturates.

    However, over the course of time it has been shown that the benzodiazepines are indeed addictive.

    In 1978 when Smith Kline French brought out cimetidine i.e Tagamet , it was thought that antacids and liquorice, and surgeons who operated on gastric ulcers would be put out of busyness.

    However, tagamet has several problems that caused it to be soon replaced by other “tidines”, and several other drugs with other mechanisms that impact on hydrogen ion formation in the stomach have come into vogue.

    If you understand the parameters of drugs well you can use them most effectively.

    In the early 90’s there was available a drug called Hismanal which had a very very long half life, and therefore a long duration of action because it was recycled from the gut via the gastro hepatic system.

    So at the beginning of the hay fever season you could give Hismanal for use all season and Loratidine for a few days to chronic sufferers. they would get immediate relief from the Loratidine which had both a short onset of action and a short duration of action, until the Hismanal which had a long onset of action cut in

    Used to work like a charm

    A particular drug firm marketed Tonopan for migraine. When they found that one of its side effects was increased appetite, they marketed the same chemical as Litec for those with poor appetite.

    One drug Tonopan came into the island duty free, the other Litec did not. So how would you get around this? LOL Used to have great fun with this.
