Oregon TV anchor says she was fired for marijuana
PORTLAND, Ore. – A former Eugene, Oregon TV news anchor said she was recently fired from her job for testing positive for marijuana.
Cyd Maurer, 25, said she was driving a work vehicle in May when she got into a fender bender on her way to a live shot.
Maurer, who graduated from the University of Oregon's School of Journalism and Communication, said her bosses at KEZI knew she was responsible and told her they wanted her to keep her job, but the decision to fire her after the positive drug test came from a corporate attorney.
Maurer said she smoked marijuana a few days before the minor traffic crash.
"I wasn't fired because I couldn't do my job. I wasn't fired because of my work ethic, my attitude, or my abilities," Maurer said. "I was fired for enjoying a plant, on my own time, in the privacy of my own home. A plant that the majority of voters in Oregon believe should be legal."
