An ombudsman is defined as “a person who investigates and attempts to resolve complaints and problems.” Our Ombudsman is GreenState’s advice and etiquette column. It’s written by Ngaio Bealum, who edited the West Coast Cannabis newspaper. Bealum is a Sacramento-area father, comedian, go-to host for cannabis events and world traveler, all of which make him a keen observer of human behavior and a reliable ambassador for marijuana. In this installment, Bealum tackles the issue of medical cannabis in the workplace.
