Princeton Worker Put on Leave Over Medical Pot

PRINCETON, N.J. — Sep 2, 2014

A Princeton University employee and marijuana legalization activist who said he was told to choose between his job and using medical marijuana is on paid leave as the university works to figure out accommodations for his disability.

Don DeZarn, 48, of East Windsor, said Tuesday that Princeton officials told him he could not work in his job as senior operations manager of campus dining and use medical marijuana. DeZarn said he hasn’t used medical marijuana while working, but had let university officials know about it if he ever needed to use it for an “emergency situation.”

Princeton officials, however, said he was not cornered into a decision between his health and his job.
