Marijuana case ruling overturned

A federal judge says Freightliner acted legally in firing a worker who's registered to use the drug, upsetting an arbitrator's decision

Unionized workers who want to use marijuana to treat pain without running afoul of their employers may have a harder time under a federal judge's new ruling.

In a decision issued late last week, U.S. District Judge Michael Mosman overruled a labor arbitrator and found that Portland truck maker Freightliner LLC acted legally in firing forklift operator John Thomas, one of more than 6,000 Oregonians with state-issued registration cards allowing them to smoke marijuana for chronic pain.
