Pot shops and grow ops are sprouting by the dozen. Consumers can buy bags from licensed retailers without fear of arrest, and light up legally in the privacy of their homes.

Yes, much has changed for marijuana enthusiasts since the state conditionally legalized recreational use of the drug in 2012.

As for employers? “Nothing has changed,” said James McCanna, a Kingston lawyer specializing in employment law.
