A Parlin man is suing Amazon after he said he was fired from his warehouse job for failing a drug test — even though he claims he had a valid medical marijuana card.

His lawsuit says he was prescribed medical marijuana after being diagnosed with anxiety and a panic disorder.

Gov. Phil Murphy in March 2018 expanded the list of conditions that could qualify to be treated with medical marijuana.

It said he was told he could have an opportunity to disclose his prescriptions if he got a positive result.

A month later, the lawsuit said, an Amazon human resources representative at the Edison warehouse told him he was being terminated for failing the drug test. D.J.C showed the HR consultant his valid medical marijuana card, according to the lawsuit.

Another Amazon HR representative called him six days later to inform him, again, that he was terminated, the suit says.

A state appeals court in April ruled in a separate case that employees can’t be fired if they flunk a drug test if they’re medical marijuana patients. »
