Detroit, MI asked in Cannabis & Marijuana Law for Ohio

Q: Can I get fired for failing a drug test even though I have my medical card and they hired me back at another location

I’m legally disabled since a young age and they’ve been telling me I might be able to get hired back for days now and they updated there policy but I’m left hanging not knowing what’s going on. I’ve missed 7days of work so far. And I have to start work at another location. They said I can’t work at the same location as my brother even though we’re both managers and I’ve worked with my father for 5 1/2 years along with my mother and boyfriend for years. So they sent me to my brothers girlfriends location. This makes no sense I can’t work at my home store but they’ll allow me to work at another location when they all know the reason I got fired.
