An Arkansas woman says she was fired from her job at a marijuana dispensary after she declined to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
“They actually did it — they really fired me — I didn’t think it was really going to happen,” Samantha Wise told KARK after she was terminated from her job at the Harvest Cannabis Dispensary Conway, Arkansas. “I am always that 1 out of every 10 or so that has a bad reaction. I am that one — so, I would just rather not.”
The mother of five said that her past history with medications contributed to her reluctance to be vaccinated against COVID-19. After she told her employer that she wouldn’t be taking the vaccine, she was asked to return her badge and key.
All employees at the store are required to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. In Arkansas, only medical marijuana is legal, and the store’s “high risk” clientele contributed to the decision to make the vaccine mandatory. . .
While the dispensary wouldn’t provide the details of Wise’s termination, it said that there were “a number of factors” that went into her firing. Harvest said it did implement a policy that allowed employees who declined to be vaccinated on medical or religious grounds to remain employed, but the company did not explain why Wise wasn’t accommodated under this exemption.
