Arizona has the most fucked up laws for Medical Marijuana Laws for workers. Here a company has the right to deny you employment for being a Medical Marijuana Card Holder by simply declaring all positions "Security Sensitive,". The list of jobs includeded under the "Security Sensitive," clause is ridiculous. It literally covers just about EVERY single job in existence. You cant work with children, animals, hazardous materials, any equipment or machinery, cant drive a vehicle.... It is absolutely ridiculous and someone really needs to do something to change these anti-discriminative policies which prevent legal/ medical marijuana users from being able to obtain legal employment.

Your experiences with this?

I am wanting to start organizing a protest in my state but wouldnt really even know where to begin (I guess right here with the thought and the idea haha)

I should not have to be dishonest about my medical conditions and medical marijuana use. I know there are ways to cheat a Lab test but I dont want to play that game any more.

Medical Marijuana Patients should be protected from anti-hiring discrimination.

Its about CHANGE.

A year ago marijuana use wasnt legal here. The people banned together, went through legal channels, and we managed to pass legislation to make recreational use legal. What should be, BECAME.

If enough Medical Patients and people who care about individual freedom/liberty ban together and go through legal channels, I guarantee we could obtain protections from anti-hiring discrimination. But it requires action.

Here, been banned everywhere else
You are right pickles. Things have changed a lot and more to come but in the mean time we need to find you suitable employment....ha ha. Good luck and the worm will turn. I never drug tested in my company. I had as many as 90 employees when things were good and my only rule was don't smoke or drink your lunch.

I have smoked marijuana all of my adult life and I AM NOT A HYPOCRITE like may of our lawmakers are now days. Not fair for me to smoke and drug test......

Fortunately I am employed now, I found an amazing employer who I have wanted to work for for a long time! So it was a blessing!

BUT, that doesnt excuse the other 4 employers who discriminated against me and the countless of other Medical Marijuana Patients soley based on the presence of thc metabolites in their system at the time of the drug test.

Yes there are ways to cheat, but the point is, we should not have to cheat. We should be able to be open and honest about what we do and it should be accepted and recognized the same as any other medication would on a drug test.

Discrimination:
Oxycontin? you show a prescription, youre fine. Xanax? show a prescription, youre fine. Marijauana? show your card, youre decline. That is the problem. Especially when you consider the amount of money that MMJ users are now pumping into the economy. We REALLY REALLY need to Unionize in Arizona and great a Special Interest Group. The amount of money that we (marijuana users) generate along with the sheer number of adults who support legalization is enough to entice any politician to want our support and backing. AND that is when we are able to get through even more liberal policies.

I hope that is not sarcasm haha. So far, I really enjoy it here. The people are friendly, knowledgeable, and reply in a reasonable time.

I wonder how I could go about starting such an organization/ protest.. I am not really on social media at all currently.

Cheating is normal in the Government. Ask the moron in charge.

You need to become a beacon of the change you want to see.

I will do what I can, in the time I have, to begin the process of organizing a pro marijuana/ employment protections rally.

This is stupid. I am annoyed by such decisions. People are not to blame for their illnesses there are chronic illnesses that can only be overcome with medical marijuana. How will people overcome their pain? For example, I take marijuana every day because I suffer from terrible joint pain. You can't imagine how your joints can hurt. Every month I take the best online dispensary Canada 2020, as no other painkillers help me. I'm afraid to imagine what will happen if marijuana is banned. It seems to me that **** will begin and many people will die of terrible pain.

It is Cannibas prohibition in a sense. Search for that and maybe you will find people who are more active that way.
