legal pot buyer firedSPOKANE, WA– Hey buddy, you’re fired. Wait, you’re rehired.

The first guy to legally buy marijuana in the state of Washington was weeded out earlier this week. Now he’s got his job back.

Mike Boyer showed up a day before a dispensary opened in Spokane, becoming one of the first people in the state to buy pot legally.

“Somebody come down and be number two!”

News cameras captured his first legal toke. Guess who watched the exciting moment? His bosses. Yep.

They made him take a drug test. He failed. They fired him.

But as soon as his story went viral, Labor Ready rehired him as a security guard.

Maybe Mike should consider a job in bud-tending.
