Bill To Help Medical Marijuana Users At Work - CA

San Mateo Times:

A new Assembly bill with two Bay Area co-authors seeks to protect medical-marijuana users' jobs.

AB 2279, introduced Wednesday, would prohibit employment discrimination against those who use marijuana as medicine in compliance with state law away from the workplace. It would leave intact already existing provisions barring consumption in the workplace, and would protect employers from liability by carving out an exception for safety-sensitive jobs.

Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, had vowed to introduce such a bill last month after the state Supreme Court ruled 5-2 that an employer can fire a worker solely because he or she uses medical marijuana outside the workplace.

"AB 2279 is merely an affirmation of the intent of the voters and the legislature that medical marijuana patients need not be unemployed to benefit from their medicine," Leno said in a news release issued Thursday.

Even though one test's positive for THC does not mean that they are under the influence of THC and to deny them work for the use of a legal medication is strictly prejudice for it will not effect their job performance the next day as a hangover will do. Why? As most of you know THC stays in the human body for up to 30 days depending on the strength and frequency of use. Point being, if I smoke marijuana tonight, I will test positive for it tommorrow long after the psychoactive effect has worn off. I don't know of any studies that have been done to compare the "morning after" between alcohol use and marijuana use. But I do know that alcohol attacks and kills brain cells, the liver, the esophagus from acid reflux disease and the hangover can be extremely painful, which is a very strong indication that alcohol is hard on the body. But the morning after smoking marijuana you feel perfectly normal. Unless your marijuana is strong enough where you might feel a mild lingering effect from the night before, but it is more pleasant and relaxing than painful. To deny the people a choice of a less intoxicating less harmful drug than alcohol, for recreational or medical use, that is non addictive non fatal and does not cause any other fatal diseases but rather has many medically theraputic effects is evil, cruel and sadistically insane, wouldn't you agree?
