I hope it works out for him too. I really think the best thing at this point is to
ask to talk to the potential employer face-to-face. Try to explain why the marijuana is needed, show the medical film, etc.

I think that is probably your best chance. But the thing is, they might not hire you just because of the back problem. I have heard of employers not wanting to hire workers who could run up bills with the health insurance or who might possibly miss a little too much work due to health problems. It isn't fair to discriminate against those with health problems, but it happens.

There is also the perception out there among many people that doctors will prescribe pot just for the occasional headache or menstrual cramps or what-have-you. The perception is that these prescriptions are just a legal cover for those who want to smoke recreationally. Again, not saying it's fair, just saying that's the perception that probably 90% of the people out there have.
