This video presentation explores the development of a research project aimed at finding a solution to an ongoing issue in Oregon, the lack of employment protections for legal consumption of both recreational and medicinal marijuana. The research dives into the problems caused by current marijuana employment law, steps other states are taking to address similar issues and steps previously taken by Oregon legislators to address this issue. Finally, the research illustrates the process and challenges of creating a comprehensive legislative report that clearly defines the problems rooted within the lack of employment protections and offers practical solutions that reflect legislative action taken in other states. The development of this project provides insight into the preliminary stages of the legislative process where the genesis of law, beginning as an idea, makes its transition towards becoming a sponsored piece of legislation.
