First Washington man to buy legal weed fired from job

Security guard Mike Boyer donned a tie-dye shirt and camped outside of a pot dispensary in Spokane for nearly 20 hours so he could be the first person to purchase legal weed in the state.

And he wasn’t shy about his achievement, cheerfully smoking his new purchase in a glass pipe in front of news cameras. The images of the 30-year-old puffing on a glass pipe were blasted worldwide and didn’t escape the attention of his boss.

Since marijuana use is banned by his employer, Boyer was asked to take a drug test, and it turned up positive for THC. He was fired.
