Marijuana Laws Lead to Headaches for Employers
Within the last decade nearly half of U.S. states have approved some form of medical marijuana usage.

By Max Perilstein
The 2nd half construction forecasts now have been released by a few of the groups I follow, and the news continues to be good. Obviously, the political landscape all over the globe has the ability to change all of this. But for now, the trend is certainly our friend.
