Judge to hear arguments in medical marijuana case
DETROIT, MICH. (Michigan Radio) - A federal judge in Grand Rapids will hear arguments tomorrow in a suit challenging the firing of a medical marijuana patient.
Joseph Cassias was fired from a Walmart in Battle Creek a year ago after he tested positive for marijuana.
Dan Korobkin is an attorney for the ACLU who's representing Cassias. He says employers from across the country are watching the case.
"There are 14 states in the country that allow for the use of medical marijuana, and the patients who use medical marijuana shouldn't have to choose between gainful employment and treating their painful conditions," said Korobkin.
Attorneys for Walmart are asking the court to dismiss the case.
