I smell a lawsuit coming.

What has happened in other states where not only medical, but recreational is legal? Interesting case.

If she taught at a private school, no big deal.
But because of the federal aspect Public School Teachers can't use medical or recreational ganja even if it is legal in their state.

Same for Fed Gov't employees, military personnel, and gov't contractors.
Big no-no.

I feel for her and it seems like she should be given a break and put on probation and drug tested every week or something like that. This seems harsh in her case.

I'm not at all convinced that a teacher taking legally prescribed marijuana would jeopardize federal funding in any way. This is just wrong.

johnnyboy - I absolutely agree, especially with the Dems in charge of all three branches. If I were her, I would be contacting John Morgan. Employment law is not his firm's forte, but, surely he can muster a pretty strong team to make a show of this travesty and he would probably win. It's a passionate and personal obsession with him. The School Bd apparently believes it would have been better for her to continue on regularly use of prescribed opioids (which is what she had been on when she switched).

This question needs to be settled, because it's happened a few times now in FL. But you've also got the Biden admin firing staff who (as I understand it) voluntarily admitted to having used THC.

Biden/Harris is not the weed friendly government I think some liberals expected. Hell if trump had run on legalization I think he would have won.

She got pushed down by a student and this gets her fired. At what point can these school board officials stop pretending that they have no choice? My guess is a lawsuit will answer this. Make there spineless bureaucrats add pointless legal fees and judgments into their tied hands.

Well you know Florida has such an abundance of highly qualified teachers waiting for the golden opportunity to teach in our public education system, that they can afford to sacrifice a few that would rather experiment with 'natural hippy remedies' than take the
wholesome opioids that have a proven record of successfully easing our pain.

Shame on her.....damn druggies!
