Governor John Kasich has signed a bill legalizing medical marijuana in Ohio. Effective September 6th, physicians in the state may recommend the use of medical marijuana for individuals suffering from more than 20 different serious medical conditions.
However, the new law does not permit smoking the drug for any reason.
In Craig v. Bridges Bros. Trucking LLC, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals joined three other circuits in ruling that an employer has an obligation to exercise reasonable diligence to find out whether its employees are working more than 40 hours in a workweek.
