Legalized pot complicates work policies

Brandon Coats works on his computer at his home in Denver. A lawsuit brought by Coats is giving employers pause. Coats, 33, has been a medical marijuana patient in Colorado since 2009. He was fired in 2010 from his job as a telephone operator with Dish Network for failing a company drug test, though the company didn’t claim he was ever impaired on the job. Coats sued, and the case is pending before the Colorado Court of Appeals.
