A. No school or landlord may refuse to enroll or lease to and may not otherwise penalize
a person solely for his status as a cardholder, unless failing to do so would cause
the school or landlord to lose a monetary or licensing related benefit under federal
law or regulations.
B. Unless a failure to do so would cause an employer to lose a monetary or licensing
related benefit under federal law or regulations, an employer may not discriminate
against a person in hiring, termination or imposing any term or condition of employment
or otherwise penalize a person based upon either:
1. The person's status as a cardholder.
2. A registered qualifying patient's positive drug test for marijuana components or
metabolites, unless the patient used, possessed or was impaired by marijuana on the
premises of the place of employment or during the hours of employment.
C. For the purposes of medical care, including organ transplants, a registered qualifying
patient's authorized use of marijuana must be considered the equivalent of the use
of any other medication under the direction of a physician and does not constitute
the use of an illicit substance or otherwise disqualify a registered qualifying patient
from medical care.
D. No person may be denied custody of or visitation or parenting time with a minor,
and there is no presumption of neglect or child endangerment for conduct allowed under
this chapter, unless the person's behavior creates an unreasonable danger to the safety
of the minor as established by clear and convincing evidence.
