I just wanted to take a quick minute to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has reached out to me.
I have been so overwhelmed! I think the outpouring of support just shows how important it was for me to share my story – because obviously it struck a chord with a lot of people.
I’d like to reiterate that none of my former coworkers are the issue here, it’s the policy.
As I said in my first video, those who worked with me every day trusted me and supported me. The decision to fire me was out of their hands – and came from a corporate attorney who had never even met me.
And that is precisely the problem. Companies should not have to live in fear of being held liable for an employee caught with small amounts of inactive THC in their system.
I was completely sober every day that I reported to work, and that’s what should matter.
I’m simply pointing out that if employees are allowed drink in their free time, it’s only logical that they have the option to use marijuana in their free time – because it’s a safer alternative.
That’s my message, and that’s why I’m speaking out – to draw attention to the unfair double standard.
