Medical Marijuana Discrimination Bill Passes House, Heads to State Senate

Phoenix New Times:  “Arizona’s new medical-marijuana law protects qualified patients from discrimination by their employers, a progressive feature that sets it apart from similar laws in other states.  A legislative bill we told you about last month aims to dilute that protection, however, and it has solid support among state lawmakers.  The Patient Discrimination Act, is it might come to be called, gives employers immunity they don’t need from lawsuits that might result from the firing or reassignment of a worker who uses medical marijuana or any other illegal drug.”

The proposed law the passed the House is HB 2541.
