Massachusetts Court Rules for Woman fired for Medical Marijuana Use

Massachusetts’ top court has ruled that a woman who had been fired for testing positive for marijuana that she had been legally prescribed could sue her former employer for handicap discrimination. Lawyers for the ex-employee, Christina Barbuto, said the ruling represents a major win for employees in the state and set a precedent for other states where medical marijuana is legal. Barbuto had accused Advantage Sales and Marketing of firing her after her first day of work because she tested positive for the drug, which she had been prescribed by a doctor to treat low appetite.
