Mike Boyer, 30, was canned Tuesday after waiting 20 hours to buy pot and immediately going home to smoke. He was called up for urine analysis after he was spotted on TV buying the pot. Boyer told The News he 'regrets nothing.'
His high was quickly brought low.
A Spokane, Wash. man was fired from his job as a security guard the same day he became the first person to legally buy weed in the city Tuesday.
I dont regret it, Mike Boyer told the Daily News Wednesday. Im sad it happened but I got the title: Im No. 1. I regret nothing.
Boyer took Tuesday off from his job and set up camp outside Spokane Green Leaf around 7 p.m. Monday. Almost 20 hours later, around 2 p.m. Tuesday, Boyer was first in the door when the pot dispensary opened its doors to sell legal marijuana.
We dont line up for Black Friday, we line up for Green Tuesday, the 30-year-old told The News. People camp out for Star Wars and donuts ... this is more important than that.
Dressed in sunglasses and a garish tie-dye T-shirt, Boyer yelled, Go Washington! as he made his historic purchase.
He walked out with four grams of Sour Kush and high-fived people waiting in line as he held his bag of weed aloft, yelling first customer! as he walked to his car and immediately went home to get high.
Boyers phone buzzed as he took his first few hits: His employer wanted him to come in and take a urine analysis test within 24 hours. A client had seen the security guard on a newscast and was concerned about the drug use, Boyer said.
The test came back positive for THC, according to Boyer.
After being fired, the Spokane native posted his resume to Craigslist in the hopes of landing a new gig hopefully in the marijuana industry, he said.
Im staying positive, Boyer said.
Im staying positive, Boyer said.
Does he SEE the irony through the fog? LOL!
Of course he regrets nothing - he’ll just go on the doll.
but he was First to buy weed , D’oh
Hahahahah - LMAO..and why do they call it DOPE?
You’re #1 alright,, good grief, I don’t have the words anymore......
He’s #1? What a distinguishing accomplishment.
I read that in Colorado, the security biz for grass stores is now big $$ because all the transactions have to be in cash.
Contrast this loser with those who Founded this country scary. Call it social entropy on steroids.
Like loss of privacy much?
He harshed his mellow, man!
Im sad it happened but I got the title: Im No. 1. I regret nothing.
Sure! He regrets nothing! Now he can go on extended, or is it forever, unemployment, food stamps, free housing, free Obembaphone.
He regrets nothing! /s
How/why are such idiots allowed to live?
Chubby little fucH. Worthless b-hole, just stay home and watch TV or play games on the internet.
We are domed I tell you! Domed!
Maybe he can get a gig guarding Pot Stores...
I predict the security guard standards will need to be ‘updated’ to say only that you cannot toke, smoke or choke on pot while on the clock. In this day and age, it’s unrealistic to assume people are not going to use a legal product if they are inclined to do so. A good lawyer could say,’what about alcohol?” are you saying, I can’t ever drink alcohol either?”
Tobacco may be different, because it often leads to expensive health issues. So a different lawyer would then use that argument against pot, saying chronic pot users become expensive health risks too.
