Medical Marijuana is like any other prescription drug that is being used to treat an illness. With that said it would be illegal for an employer to fire an employee due to medical reasons. If the employee is unable to perform his/her job duties then I believe the employer would have to train the employee for another job type or position.
Now trying to get a job is whole different story. Depending on what job you’re going for they could legally deny you employment due to your meds. You might be a liability.
I know I’m not much help, but you really should talk to a lawyer and if you can’t afford one try legal aid.
