A Littler more strange advice

The US Supreme Court recently ruled that federal agents can prosecute/persecute dying cancer patients for using marijuana despite state laws permitting medical pot. link

Although the decision had nothing to do with employment law, it did give employment-law firm Littler Mendelson an opportunity to crank up its PR machine to try to find some employment-law-related wisdom to spin out.

What they suggest, however, is strange. Curiously, Littler appears to suggest that employers have workers slowly taper off dope smoking at work rather than stop it all at once.

In Littler's June 2005 ASAP, they write: "employers can refuse to consider accommodations that would acknowledge or support illegal activity." Despite this accurate and succinct statement, they continue with this advice: "a 'reasonable' accommodation is likely to include steps like allowing an employee the opportunity to transition to another medication (e.g., Marinol) or other treatment." (emphasis added)

In other words, ask your worker Bud to lighten up lighting up bud. I imagine their suggested conversation goes something like:

"So, Bud, we understand you have glaucoma, but do you think you can cut back on your dope a bit? You know, one joint less a day should do it."
