MASON — #$%$ users who conform to the state’s #$%$ law can collect unemployment benefits, an Ingham County judge has ruled.
In a decision issued Tuesday, Circuit Judge William Collette overturned a state commission that found a state-approved #$%$ user, who was fired from her job after testing positive for marijuana, was not eligible for unemployment benefits.
“Disqualification from unemployment benefits for use of #$%$ in conformity with (state law),” Collette wrote, “would amount to an impermissible penalty” and be “contrary to law.”
The case surrounds former Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital employee Jenine Kemp of Lansing, who was fired in 2011. . ."
