    Ellen C. Rains, Associate with Ogletree Deakins will guide us through the details the Louisiana legislature has passed that allows individuals with certain medical conditions to purchase and use marijuana. This informative presentation will explain the scope of this new law and its implications, as well as provide analogies to other states where these laws are more well-settled. The presentation will also offer practical dos and don’ts for employers that encounter applicants or employees who present them with medical marijuana cards or other prescriptions. Join Ellen Rains for a discussion of drug testing, the interaction of state and federal laws, and other issues that may arise due to the use of medical marijuana (as well as other prescription drugs) by applicants and/or employees.

    Also, we will be partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank this month and will be holding a food drive at our monthly meeting.  We are asking that our members bring at least one non perishable food item when they come to the meeting. Please direct all questions to Joe Washington at
