A severely disabled man fired because of his after-hours medical-marijuana use has no legal recourse because the drug remains banned under federal law, a Colorado court ruled Thursday.
"Plaintiff contends that we must read 'lawful activity' to include activity that is prohibited by federal law, but not state law," said Chief Judge Janice Davidson in the divided opinion. "However, while we agree that the general purpose of [the law] is to keep an employer's proverbial nose out of an employee's off-site hours business we can find no legislative intent to extend employment protection to those engaged in activities that violate federal law."
