It’s Time To Enact Appropriate Job Protections For Those Who Legally Use Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Many observers were shocked and saddened when Brandon Coats, a quadriplegic who is authorized to use medical marijuana under Colorado state law, was fired from his job with Dish Network in 2010 after a positive drug test. Dish failed to make an exception for Coats, who used marijuana while off duty to control his seizures, and the company insisted on his being fired, leaving Coats no choice but to challenge this issue in court.

Specifically, Coats claimed that his conduct should have been permitted under the state’s Lawful Off-Duty Activities Statute, which makes it an unfair and discriminatory labor practice to discharge an employee based on the employee’s “lawful,” away-from-work activities. But the trial court, followed by the Court of Appeals and now the Colorado Supreme Court, have all ruled that the statute only protects conduct that is legal under both state and federal law — and therefore offers no job protection to Coats.

“Therefore, employees who engage in an activity, such as medical marijuana use, that is permitted by state law but unlawful under federal law are not protected by the statute,” Justice Allison H. Eid wrote in the opinion.

This case highlights one of the most pressing issues that needs to be addressed in the states that have legalized medical cannabis use — and the states that have adopted full legalization for all adults, as well. Although employees are protected from arrest and prosecution under state law by these various laws, they remain vulnerable to employment discrimination in almost all states.

DEA Statistics Reveal Domestic Cultivation Trends

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

The Drug Enforcement Administration’s Domestic Cannabis Eradication/Supression Program (DCESP) works with state law enforcement to find and eradicate cultivated marijuana in the United States and is one of the few sources for data on domestically grown cannabis.

One of the most revealing aspects of the DCESP data is what it tell us about marijuana cultivation trends in the United States and the extent (rather than success or failure) of the government’s efforts to prevent domestically grown cannabis from getting to market.

In other words, a description of how much cannabis is seized and where it is seized also reveals where the most cannabis is grown and other interesting trends related to domestic cultivation.

This article is based on a review of the DCESP’s eradication statistics for 2010 through 2014 and is primarily based on the average data of various states for this five year period.
