It was a big day this week for potheads in Washington state when the first legalized sales of marijuana took place.
In Spokane, Mike Boyer camped out to be the first in line.
But Mike provides a great lesson. Even if you’re buying legal pot, ix-nay on the ameras-cay.
He’s been fired from his security job after flunking a drug test. One of his company’s clients saw the TV report.
“I’m staying positive,” Boyer said.
He’s trying now to get a job in the marijuana industry.
Update 10:30 pm He has gotten his job back
