Off-the-job medical marijuana use does not bar firing
Since when did Employeers have the right to tell workers what they can and can't do with their personal lives? I don't recall Google telling their emplyees that they cannot drink alcohol while they are at home do you? This is a complete joke and someone needs to do something about this idiocracy.
OLYMPIA, Wash.—The state's Medical Use of Marijuana Act does not prohibit employers from firing workers for using pot off the job, Washington's Supreme Court has ruled.

The Green Rush: Medical Marijuana a 1.7 billion dollar Industry
See Change Strategy recently published a study that found the current national market for medical marijuana exceeds 1.7 billion dollars, with the possibility of 99% growth in the next 5 years. See Change also expects up to 20 new markets to open within the medical marijuana industry.
The medical marijuana market is projected to grow 8.9 billion by 2016. “The growing acceptance of medical marijuana is providing business operators and investors with unprecedented opportunities," says See Change Strategy.
If the government continues to refuse to recognize the medical marijuana industry, they will be missing out on a huge amount of tax revenue from the dispensaries. States are already capitalizing on the industry, using the money to support various programs including drug and alcohol treatment programs.
