Employers not following the law, what to do?
Recently, my place of employment decided to change its position to not allowing medical marijuana cards. Though many attempts have been made to explain that this is illegal (unless they are losing federal funds or a federal contract), they have decided to stay with this decision. There needs to be a page where the patients can report a company, if they feel the company is not following the MMJ laws. The state could then send a letter to the employer, explaining the laws and penalties for discrimination. There is a page for companies to check the verification of the patients, so why isn't there a page for patients to report suspected discrimination. Especially if the company policy is admitting to it. Thank You.

When voters passed the Medical Marijuana Act, there were very specific things set for ADHS to do. ADHS does not have any authority over employers so it wouldn’t be appropriate to have a page on the ADHS website to report employers. This may be something you would want to speak about with an attorney.

So all the laws, hotlines, and fees, are designed to insure the patients are following the law, but when it comes to those law abiding citizens losing their jobs because of discrimination from employers, ADHS advice is to get an attorney.
