New cannabis testing devices may affect employees and employers

Minnesota, like many other states, is grappling with the changing social attitudes toward marijuana use and legislation. The possession of small amounts of cannabis has been decriminalized for decades in the state, and medicinal use of the drug is authorized for a number of hard-to-manage conditions.
