Med. marijuana lawsuit against Walmart to begin

By Ed Brayton
A lawsuit against Walmart for firing a Battle Creek man for using medical marijuana to help with an inoperable brain tumor despite such usage being legal in Michigan is set to begin on Friday in federal court in Grand Rapids.
Joseph Casias uses medical marijuana in full compliance with Michigan law, but Walmart still fired him for a positive test for the drug even though he was the employee of the year in his store just two years earlier. The ACLU is representing him in court.
