BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA (WFTV) – A Brevard County teacher is fighting to save her career and reputation after she said she was fired for using medical marijuana.
Marta MacCullagh taught second grade at Endeavour Elementary School until she was fired Tuesday for violating the district’s drug-free workplace policy.
“I’m very, very upset,” said MacCullagh. “I don’t have a lot of tears left to cry right now.”
The district initially received an email alleging MacCullagh used marijuana in November. The email included a video of the teacher with a pipe.
A drug test later found marijuana to be in the system of MacCullagh. The teacher does not believe she did anything wrong since she’s been on Florida’s medical marijuana use registry for over a year.
