Mike Boyer races through the crowd showing off his 4 grams of pot he bought as the first in line to legally purchase marijuana at Spokane Green Leaf on Country Homes Boulevard.
The first man to buy legal recreational pot in Spokane says his fame has cost him his job.
Mike Boyer, who made the rounds in television and newspapers yesterday as the first customer at Spokane Green Leaf, posted to Craigslist on Wednesday that a colleague had turned him in to his employer, Kodiak Security. Boyer said in the post that his fame had cost him his job.
Reached by phone Wednesday afternoon, Boyer said he had until 2:30 p.m. this afternoon to take a urine test ordered by his employer. He said he drove home and smoked with friends after his purchase yesterday, and knew he likely wouldn’t pass the test.
Boyer said he did not expect the media attention to cost him his employment.
“I was really unaware that this might be a big deal,” he said Wednesday. Kip Hill, SR
Well. That didn't take long. Thoughts?
