Government Employee Gets Job Back After Being Fired for MMJ Use

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

A senior programmer and systems analyst in Lane County, Oregon is getting his job back after being fired for his medical marijuana use.

An arbitrator ruled in favor of 60-year-old Michael Hirsch, who used medical cannabis to manage the negative effects of cancer treatment, reports the Register Guard. He'll be reinstated at his job next week and has received $21,550 in back pay.

This type of ruling is rare—employees who are fired over medical cannabis use usually have no recourse due to federal prohibition. In June 2015, a medical marijuana patient in Colorado lost his case against the Dish Network after he was fired for his off-duty medical cannabis use. The Colorado Supreme Court decided that federal law applied in this case, even though the patient was following the state's medical marijuana laws.

Attorney Files Federal Class Action Lawsuit Against MSP, Oakland County Labs

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

michigan marijuanaKomorn Law has filed a class-action suit in federal court against the Directors of the Michigan State Police Forensic Science Division and Oakland County’s Forensic Services Laboratory over 4th Amendment and due process violations in the way marijuana evidence is being officially reported to Courts by those labs. Also named in the suit: Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard and Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue, head of the State Police.

The suit names as Plaintiffs four individuals who have had these questionable lab results on seized evidence used against them in a court of law, and include Max Lorincz, Earl Carruthers, Jason Poe and Brandon Shobe. The full document is available on the Fox 17 website at THIS LINK and via several social media sites.

The suit seeks “Declatory and injunctive relief,” per the Court filing.

“Specifically, Plaintiffs bring this action because of the serious risk of deprivation of Plaintiffs’ liberty interests, rights under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution, and right to substantive and procedural due process. These deprivations result from the Michigan State Police Forensic Science Division (the “Forensic Division”) intentionally misrepresenting test results regarding marijuana, at the behest of the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan (“PAAM”) and other law enforcement agencies, to support the charging of felonies when none occurred.”
