The 2015 Fleet Safety Conference, set for July 13-15 in Schaumburg, Ill., includes an educational session focused on clarifying what impact state marijuana laws should have on fleet safety policies and what measures fleet managers can take to prevent marijuana-impaired driving.

“Developing Fleet Policies that Address the State of Legalization of Marijuana on Impaired Driving” is scheduled for 3-4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14. Tom Bray, senior editor for transportation management at J.J. Keller & Associates, will make the presentation. LoJack is the session sponsor.

Twenty-three states, along with Washington D.C., now allow comprehensive public medical marijuana and cannabis programs. Additionally, four states have approved recreational marijuana use: Colorado, Washington state, Alaska and Oregon. Oregon's law goes into effect next month.

What impact, if any, do such laws have on employee drug testing programs? Bray will address this question and much more during his one-hour presentation.



Bray is a longtime specialist in motor carrier safety and operations management. Before joining J.J. Keller, he worked in the trucking industry for 22 years as a driver, trainer, safety supervisor, lead instructor, claims manager, training director and safety director.

The 2015 Fleet Safety Conference will feature a range of educational sessions covering all vehicle class types.
