The Connecticut Post reports that James Bulerin III says in his lawsuit that he passed all eligibility requirements to become a Bridgeport firefighter, but he was denied after he tested positive for marijuana.

His lawyer, Thomas Bucci, says Bulerin has a medical marijuana card, and his client’s undisclosed condition does not affect his ability to serve as a firefighter.

Bucci says as long as he’s not using pot during work hours, his client cannot be denied the employment opportunity under state law.
