That would be practicing law without a license. "Template" legal documents are rarely worth the paper they are printed on. If your friend cannot afford a private attorney, then that person needs to contact NJLS or law school legal clinics.

Yes, just because certain drugs are taken by prescription or if they have been legalized does not mean that an employer has to hire you. I do not believe that they are required to indicate what drug or if that makes any difference whatsoever. Good luck and try some place else.
