Description

The United States is gradually becoming the land of the red, white, and… green. No… really! Since 2016 over 10 states have legalized the sale and recreational usage of marijuana, and 33 states have some sort of medical marijuana statue on the books. Despite many states going green by legalizing recreational usage of pot, there is still one component to this narrative that hasn’t garnered lot of coverage over the past couple years: medical marijuana in the workplace.

Can an employer fire you if are consuming marijuana as a part of a medicinal regimen? Can you be denied a prospective job due to a pre-employment drug test where it came back positive for THC, despite you being a part of a state medicinal registry? There is no simple answer to this complex issue; medical pot has left us in a legal limbo. So, in order to get to the bottom of this, I sat down with attorney Dustin Massie. Dustin is an advocate for employees who have experienced wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, harassment and other illegal treatment in the workplace.

In all my years of working as a journalist, he is probably the most impressive attorney I have had the honor of interviewing. His charisma and magnetism matched with his intelligence and ability to answer tough questions in an articulate manner, immediately made me realize I was speaking with someone of importance; someone whom I could see sitting on a federal bench as a judge, or becoming a leader in the legal the community.

So, for all those people who have unanswered questions about what protections they have (or don’t have)listen to this episode, and my interview with an impressive attorney, as we sort out some of the legal limbo that medical marijuana has left us in.

Here is a conversation you should know about, with attorney Dustin Massie.

This is an Emergency! (sort of)
The President has declared a national emergency, and unlike previous ones. this one doesn’t have to do with a terrorist attack, sanctioning a foreign government, or an insurrection among US Citizens. This national emergency is... as President Trump says, to get money to build a wall along the US-Mexico border...The House of Representatives already approved a measure that would overturn the president’s declaration… now it goes to the senate where 4 GOP senators are voting with the democrats to halt the president’s border wall plans. But it doesn’t seem the Senate or the House has enough votes to override a presidential veto. Because this situation is so confusing, and it’s hard to understand WHO exactly has WHAT powers, I decided to get some clarity on the topic of presidential and legislative authority, as well as the role of the federal judiciary. So I reached out to constitutional law scholar, attorney West Allen. Mr. Allen has extensive experience representing clients in federal court on a wide variety of issues, including copyright, trademark and constitutional law disputes. He is currently the treasurer of the Federal Bar Association and is slated to be the National President of the F-B-A in 2020, making him Nevada’s first lawyer to lead a nationwide bar organization.
