Companies try to comply with medical marijuana law
On a typical weekday, stockbroker Irvin Rosenfeld has a marijuana cigarette before work, then goes to his firm's smoking area for another after he gets to the office. By day's end, he usually has smoked more than a half-dozen joints -- and handled millions of dollars' in clients' holdings.
There's nothing illegal about it. Rosenfeld, 54, of Fort Lauderdale, has a condition that causes benign tumors in the long bones of his body. After trying to control pain by taking narcotics such as Dilaudid, he persuaded the U.S. government to put him in a test program that gives marijuana to people with certain illnesses. His pain is now manageable, he says.
This guy lives in Florida but the news story talks about Oregon as well. When did we become such a backwards society where these people aren't shunned? This man should be mocked and ridiculed at his work until he quits.
Granted he probably has no sense of shame so the quiting thing might not work but he should be ostracized and his clients should be made aware of his drug use.
