Rejected petition Ensure job protection so that people don't lose a job for medical cannabis
I would like the government to ensure amnesty granted for all those seeking work,also discriminated against during interview process, don't risk job loss if currently in work due to lack of funds,proving difficult for patients to access medical cannabis when have a medical prescription for cannabis.
Legal THC how does that change what we do in the workplace?
Medicinal Cannabis being legalised has no effect on workplace testing.
does that mean it’s safe to use in the workplace?Not at all.In charge of testing and worried your policy won’t stand now, don't worry.If your policy states that you have a zero tolerance to illegal or non-prescribed drugs, you don’t need to change
(So this is clear that work life regarding medical cannabis is not currently fully protected in the UK.)
This petition was rejected
Why was this petition rejected?
It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.
Petitions need to call on the Government or Parliament to take a specific action.
We understand that you are concerned about employment arrangements for people who have been prescribed cannabis-based products for medical use, but we're not sure exactly what you'd like the Government or Parliament to do.
You could start a new petition explaining clearly what you would like the Government or Parliament to do.
We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
