Legal marijuana smoker sues Delta Air Lines
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A man who legally uses marijuana for medicinal purposes is suing Delta Air Lines for kicking him off a plane because he was carrying the drug.
Irvin Rosenfeld, a stockbroker from Boca Raton, filed suit Wednesday in federal court, claiming the airline violated federal protections for people with disabilities.
Rosenfeld, 48, suffers from a rare, painful bone disease and gets relief through marijuana, which is prescribed by a doctor and grown for the government. He smokes up to 12 marijuana cigarettes daily to fight tumors.
In March, he was kept from boarding a Delta flight from Fort Lauderdale to Washington, D.C., where he was to attend a U.S. Supreme Court session on possible expansion of medicinal marijuana use. Officials told him he had to leave the marijuana behind or get written permission from every state he was flying over.
