ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — A New Jersey man is considering suing for the right to use medical marijuana in an Atlantic City casino.
Daniel Price's lawyer, Michelle Douglass, says that Revel Casino Hotel failed to accommodate his disability when a security guard told him he could not take his marijuana into the casino last month.
The 23-year-old Atlantic City resident is a registered medical marijuana patient. He tells The Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/1nBDZVT ) that he uses the drug to treat seizures and irritable bowel disease.
State guidelines encourage patients to smoke cannabis at home. But they are not barred by law from using it in private businesses.
Revel, like all Atlantic City casinos, has a smoking area. Lisa Johnson, a Revel spokeswoman, declined to comment to the newspaper.
No lawsuit has been filed.
