Man Says He's Forced to Choose Between Job and Medical Pot

PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) -- A Princeton University employee and marijuana legalization activist who says 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 says Princeton officials told him that he could not work in his job as senior operations manager of campus dining and use medical marijuana. Princeton officials, however, say he was not cornered into a decision between his health and his job.

Princeton spokesman Martin Mbugua (boo-GWAH') says DeZarn was placed on paid leave and invited to discuss "reasonable accommodations" for his disability. The university met with him Tuesday to go over that process.

Mbugua declined to give examples of the accommodations because they vary in each case.
