Policemen Do Not Wear Pink Dresses

From USATODAY.com, a reprinted CNBC report by Shelly K. Schwartz beginning:
Medical marijuana is casting a cloud of confusion over Corporate America.

Pot is legal in 14 states as a prescription painkiller, leaving employers struggling to reconcile zero-tolerance drug policies with a patient's right to get high...
Do the editors and CNBC and USA Today not know that there is a difference between something being legal and having a "right" to do it, including at work?

It is legal, for example, for men to wear frilly pink dresses, but that does not confer a right to male police officers to wear them while on patrol.
