Master’s student Jesse Market received the best poster award at the 2018 Graduate Internship Reception. As part of his M.A. with internship option, Jesse interned at the Town of Tecumseh in the Corporate Services Department. His poster and internship paper focused on how Canadian municipalities have been preparing for the legalisation of cannabis in their workplaces. He suggests that for the City Windsor to be ready, it should learn from municipalities that have been through it like the municipality of Salem, Oregon, and the County of Essex. Specifically, the City of Windsor should consider fitness for duty policies, which ensure employees come to work able to perform their duties safely and effectively. The municipal government should also adopt accommodation policies for employees that may be dealing with a disability or suffer a condition that would require alternate workplace arrangements.
