MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAW IN MICHIGAN RUNS INTO WORKPLACE RULE

Employers Not Required to Allow Marijuana Use

If a recently filed medical marijuana lawsuit reaches the Michigan
Court of Appeals or state Supreme Court, it could produce a
precedent-setting decision that impacts employers and patients, whose
jobs may be at risk even when legally using the drug.

marijuana — filed a lawsuit last week against Wal-Mart in Calhoun
County Circuit Court after being fired for testing positive for pot
during a drug test.
