I was reading the link on the last page about the North Carolina bill to legalize medical marijuana and found something that has been needed in these bills for quite a while. *Disclaimer* While i have read a few of these bills, i have not seen patient protection from employer drug testing. These bills are a pain to read however and I have not read all of them, or might have missed it in the ones I have read. I do remember reading about instances in California where people have been fired for popping positive on drug tests even though they are a medical marijuana patient. The people went to court with their employer, however the court ruled in favor of the employer for the reason that Marijuana was not legally prescribed to the patient but only recommended. The catch is that marijuana can not be legally prescribed until federal laws are changed.
