Meanwhile, the sheriff in Meclinberg county NC just revoked a CCL because the hospital called him because someone tested positive for marijuana... we don't have any form of legal marijuana here, but we also don't have red flag laws here in NC. This is just some triggered lefty health care provider ratting out a patient. Details are sketchy, all we have is a tweet from the guy who got bit by this.
I read about it and without more details, it sounds like a whole lot of crucial info is suspiciously missing. For a hospital to narc out a patient to the police, it would be a massive HIPAA violation. I’ll post back in a sec when I get onto my computer.
Alright I'm back.
Some of the things that are extremely strange about it are:
1. Why was he getting drug tested? Employment? Did he work at the hospital and they did a random on him? Was he a nurse and a failed drug test requires the hospital to report it to the state? Lot's of missing info here that is pretty critical. The only times drug tests are reported to the authorities is when it's mandated, like for DOT, or public sector jobs. The reason for the drug test is missing.
2. In the message it seemed to hint at him saying it was medical, and insinuating his doctor prescribed it, which would be impossible in NC since it's not legal at all, medical or otherwise.
3. I don't know the CCL laws in NC, so I can't say whether or not the hospital violated HIPAA. But one question that comes to mind is how they even knew he had a CCL.
I honestly don't buy the story. It sounds a lot like some idiot who had a CCL, smoked pot, worked in a job where they can do randoms and it's reported to the authorities if you fail, and he felt dumb and wanted a bunch of attention.
