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.'
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 don’t regret it,” Mike Boyer told the Daily News Wednesday. “I’m sad it happened but I got the title: I’m 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 don’t 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.”
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.
Boyer’s 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.
