BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) — A glass company worker claims he was wrongfully fired for using medically prescribed marijuana to treat his chronic illness.
Joseph Cobb III has filed a discrimination lawsuit against Bridgeton-based Ardagh Glass, claiming he was let go despite his “stellar work performance.” He’s seeking compensatory and punitive damages.
The company declined comment, saying it does not discuss pending litigation.
Cobb started working at the glass manufacturing plant in 2012. He says he was prescribed medical marijuana in early 2017 to help treat his Marfan syndrome, which is a genetic disorder that impacts the body’s connective tissue.
Cobb took a drug test March 12 after he was injured on the job. Cobb says he showed his employers his medical marijuana card the next day but was fired.
