A New Jersey business does not have to waive its requirement for mandatory drug testing for a worker who uses medical marijuana, a federal court has ruled.
Daniel Cotto Jr. of Bridgeton had sued Ardagh Glass citing the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination after the company wouldn't allow him to return to his job unless he submitted to breathalyzer and urine screenings.
Ardagh asked that Cotto's suit be dismissed, an action which was granted by Judge Robert B. Kugler sitting in U.S. District Court in Camden.
"New Jersey law does not require private employers to waive drug tests for users of medical marijuana," Kugler wrote.
