CFP - Cannabis Policy: Challenges and Opportunities for PA
Cannabis policy is changing quickly at the state level. We contend that there are far more interesting questions regarding cannabis policy in the United States and its impact on public administration than have been touched by policy and administration scholars. The aim of this special issue is to foster greater attention to cannabis policy research within public administration. While cannabis lends itself to puns and plays on words about drug culture, we prefer titles and approaches that do not reinforce stereotypes or diminish the seriousness of cannabis policy. It is a significant industry that is reshaping American drug policy and requires rigorous social science research for understanding its implications on citizens and governance. See the attached call for details.

Attitudinal Effects of Ethical Work Climate: An Organizational Analysis
SO HEE JEON and SHARON KUKLA-ACEVEDO
PAQ, Vol. 43 No. 4,
The past two decades have observed a growing research interest in understanding the impact of ethical organizational context on public employee work attitudes. This study contributes to this growing body of literature on the link between ethics and management by examining how public agenciesâ€™ level of ethical work climate (EWC) influences agency- level work motivation and turnover intention rate (measured separately as intention to transfer to another agency and intention to leave the federal government). An organizational-level analysis of federal government data shows that EWC is a critical element of a desirable workplace where employees are motivated to work hard. A federal agencyâ€™s level of EWC is also associated with the agencyâ€™s transfer intention rate, but not with the agencyâ€™s rate of employees intending to leave the federal government. The paper discusses implications of the research findings and concludes by discussing its limitations and making suggestions for future research.
Keywords: Ethical work climate, employee work motivation, turnover intention rate, U.S. federal government
