Stop Walmart from Firing Cancer Patients for Using Medical Marijuana

Change.org started this petition to Walmart CEO Michael Duke

Joseph Casias, a cancer patient, Walmart employee and former “Associate of the Year” from Michigan, was fired for testing positive for marijuana. His doctor recommended he use the drug, legal under Michigan law, to treat pain from sinus cancer and a brain tumor.

Walmart doesn’t care that marijuana is legal to use medicinally in 14 states and is sticking to its policy of firing any worker who tests positive for marijuana use.

Medical decisions should be made between doctors and patients and companies like Walmart should respect those decisions.

Tell Walmart to stop firing patients like Joseph Casias with cancer and other serious afflictions simply for taking medicine recommended by their doctors.
