Former employee of Philadelphia’s Thomas Jefferson University Sues After Being Fired For Having THC In Her Blood

A former employee of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia has sued the school for wrongful termination. She claims to have been using medical marijuana on a doctor’s orders, but the university fired her after a drug test found THC in her blood.

What’s made the case get more attention is that Thomas Jefferson University is home to the Lambert Center for the Study of Medicinal Cannabis & Hemp. The university established the center with a $3 million donation from the Australian couple Barry and Joy Lambert.
