Neuberger Comments on Prospects for Marijuana Breathalyzer Test

23 October 2019 Business Insurance News
Of Counsel Mark Neuberger was quoted in a Business Insurance article, “Marijuana drug test in works; could be relief for employers,” about the development of a new type of drug test for marijuana use that is set to hit the market next year.

Neuberger, co-chair of Foley’s Cannabis Industry Team, suggested that employers conduct field sobriety tests on employees suspected of marijuana impairment instead of just sending them out for drug testing. “There’s scientific evidence behind that” and it’s legally acceptable, he said. “You don’t need to be a law enforcement person to get training. If you suspect an employee in the workplace is impaired…put them through the test and make a reasonable determination.”
