Companies Can Fire Employees for Using Marijuana, Colorado Supreme Court Rules


The Supreme Court in Colorado ruled Monday that a business can fire an employee for using medical marijuana even if the employee is off-duty and abiding by state law.

Brandon Coats, a quadriplegic who smoked marijuana at home to control seizures, was fired in 2010 from his job as a telephone operator for Dish Network. He failed a random drug test.

Coats sued, but lost at trial court and at a court of appeals. The Colorado Supreme Court upheld the earlier decisions.
