State Supreme Court Hears Appeal of Fired Medical Cannabis Patient

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Last week, the Washington Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Roe v. TeleTech. Roe was fired from her job as a customer service representative solely for her lawful medical use of cannabis. The ACLU of Washington submitted a friend of the court brief in the case urging that the rights of individuals under our state's medical marijuana law be protected. And that it is important for employers to respect the private medical choices employees make in consultation with their physicians.
