Portland Press Herald and AP Articles on Maine’s Marijuana Legalization Law and Employment Incorrect

Posted on Posted in Government, news

A Portland Press Herald article published late in the evening of July 24, 2017, inaccurately cited the Maine Department of Labor’s guidance to employers regarding the state’s new marijuana legalization law as related to employment. This article was later corrected, but before that correction was published, the story was picked up by national media and circulated throughout social media, including blogs written by attorneys to provide guidance to clients.
