"1st Legal Pot Buyer" Fired For Drug Use

WASHINGTON - Mike Boyer showed up almost a full day before you could buy pot from this store in North Spokane.

Almost 20 hours later he walked through the Spokane Green Leaf's doors as their first customer.

News crews followed him back home with his weed as he enjoyed his first smoke, which is now OK in the state of Washington because of I-502.

But Boyer found out someone saw him on TV and complained to his employer.

He says his boss at Labor Ready sent him a text message asking him to take a drug test.

Boyer says took the test and failed it.

Now that marijuana is legal in the state, Boyer believes businesses should treat employees using weed on a case-by-case basis.

A day after all the excitement, he may not have a job but he still has the title as the first person who bought marijuana legally in Spokane.

"I am number one and no one can take that," said Boyer.
