TikToker says she was fired for testing positive for marijuana

A TikToker claims Amazon fired her for testing positive for marijuana. She also said she had a medical marijuana card and she was terminated in a text message.

On Thursday, TikToker @loutinabae (“Stina”) posted screenshot of her reaction to someone named Mario who presumably fired her. She previously said she was fired via text message in a TikTok and she was later taken down.

“I am receiving medication cards for severe PTSD,” Stina’s text began. “It’s legal consumption.” PTSD refers to post-traumatic stress disorder.

“I have never smoked at work,” she wrote.

Her bio states that she lives in Florida, where medical marijuana is legal.

She explained to Mario that she had the impression that Amazon do not fire people who test positive for marijuana. She claimed that the company did not give her the opportunity to prove that her consumption of the drug was legal.

She also included a link to an article about Amazon’s cannabis policy.

In June, the company announced that it would not ban people from working there because of testing positive for marijuana in most cases. It also said it would publicly support the legalization of marijuana at the federal level.

“We will no longer include cannabis in our comprehensive drug testing program for any position that is not regulated by the Department of Transportation, and will instead treat marijuana like alcohol use. ,’ CEO Dave Clark wrote on the company Blog.

“We will continue to test for impairment at work and will test for all drugs and alcohol following any incidents.”

Trina did not include her job title or disclose the circumstances that led to her being examined.

Stina later founded the company itself.

She says she’s not really interested in keeping Amazon’s job. Stina accused them of “repeatedly threatening to give people days off for making mistakes while they were still learning.” She added that “having such high expectations and accusing people of milking for hours when you’re not giving them enough to make a living is not the place to work for me.”

She said, “Someone needs to speak up and if it’s me.”

“You’re bullying employees who can’t catch up right away.” Stina also wrote that she has a learning disability and that she felt pressured and attacked during her time there.

As a farewell photo, she wrote, “Merry Christmas. For my Christmas I can’t make rent. Your hope is better. ”

She then asks Mario not to contact her anymore.

In the comments, people cheered Stina for standing up for herself.

“You can do a lot better than that. Fuck Mario (and Luigi too)”, one person wrote.

Some suggested she sue the company. Stina replied that Florida law does not allow that. Florida is a work-right state, which means you can be fired for any reason except those prescribed by law, such as race, age, or disability.

Some took the opportunity to entice Amazon, the company was faced with complain end How It treats workers for many years.

“I work at Amazon and it’s a doctor,” one person wrote. “Amazon doesn’t care about their workers, that’s why I work to the bare minimum.”

Amazon did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment Thursday afternoon. Daily Dot could not contact Stina.
