Most stoners have figured out ways to bypass the ever dreaded drug test that employers still deem necessary. Of course, it's good to know if your employees are doing cocaine or meth, among the other more serious drugs. But the fact that there are companies that are still testing for THC in legal states is a little ridiculous. Even so, there are ways to pass and not get caught. Fake pee, a friend's pee, etc. But if you're like the first man to purchase weed in Washington state, there's really no way to fool your employer in to thinking you don't smoke if they see you buy a bag of bud on TV.
Mike Boyer was the first man to buy cannabis in the state of Washington on July 8th when the plant finally became legal. He waited all night, even brought his stuff to camp out in, as well as some munchies that included Mountain Dew and Doritos. He was totally amped to get that first bag of green gold in the morning! And he did, snagging a bag of Sour Kush that cost him $50. His purchase was recorded by TV cameras as well as photographers, as another epic moment in American history was made.
The high of the purchase was somewhat short lived when Boyer went home to discover a message from his employer, Kodiak Security Services, telling him that he must submit to a drug test. Boyer submitted to the test, which came back positive for THC and Boyer was let go from his job, where he had worked on and off for twelve years. "Several years ago, I signed a document saying I wouldn't have [THC] in my system but I don't smoke at work!" Boyer told NY Daily News. Kodiak denied the fact that they had fired Boyer. Kym Ramey, manager of HR at the security service, said "We're a security firm. Our employees can't be under the influence on the job." The situation is slightly confusing and is sure to develop more as time goes on, as marijuana activists are surely upset about such a terribly rude gesture.
Boyer didn't seem too phased by the negative backlash from his stoney purchase, instead saying that he's "still the captain! Still number one!" He went on to say that am an can always get a job but you can only be the first man to buy weed in Spokane once. Making history seems to be much higher on Boyer's list than working at a job that is so disrespectful to long term employees. Boyer has already posted his resume to Craigslist in hopes of finding a new job but his enthusiasm for cannabis is still not dampened.
