Diyari Vázquez presented on "What’s the Buzz About: Legalized Marijuana and the Hospitality Industry," at the CH&LA webinar on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 10:00 - 11:00 AM.

This webinar, presented by Diyari Vázquez, a premier hospitality and employment lawyer from Michelman & Robinson, LLP, addressed the impact of legalized marijuana on the hotel and resort business and workplace. Ms. Vázquez discussed the rising tide of states that permit the use of recreational and/or medical cannabis; the federal law that outlaws pot and treats the drug no different than cocaine, heroin or LSD; the growing popularity of marijuana tourism – a boon to the hoteliers to be sure; and the potential issues that arise between employers and employees that smoke, vape or otherwise consume the substance.
