Brickbat: Forget What We Said


medical marijuana
Chimpinski /

After Abigail Peck was offered a job at Connecticut's B.W. Tinker Elementary School, she told them she used medical marijuana for ulcerative colitis. She had a valid Florida medical marijuana card, but the school system's human resources office pushed back her start date so she could get a Connecticut card. However, when Peck got the card and tried to start her job, the school fired her. In a statement, the school system's attorney said marijuana use violates the school's drug-free policy. She has filed a lawsuit.
