Teacher’s job offer rescinded after disclosing marijuana prescription

U.S. & World

A woman’s new job offer was recently rescinded after she revealed she had a prescription for medical marijuana.

Abigail Peck had recently moved to Connecticut from Florida and was in the process of accepting a position as a music teacher.

Peck disclosed to the school that she used medical marijuana to treat a serious illness and the school said it was fine.

Peck had a Florida issued medical marijuana license but not one from Connecticut at the time.

The school put her on administrative leave and then officially rescinded the job offer.

“I followed the protocol. They gave me instructions. I followed them in a timely fashion. Everything was legal and law-abiding,” Peck said.

The termination letter was based on the fact her medical card was not active in Connecticut at the time of her hire.

Peck has hired a lawyer and has filed a lawsuit.
