Fired Stoner Security Guard

I Got My Job Back

But I Still Want a Higher Position

Exclusive Details

0711_Mike-Boyer_twitterThe first guy to buy legal pot in Washington just got his job back ... after his employer admitted they jumped the gun by overreacting to the fact that he's a self-admitted recreational stoner.

Mike Boyer tells us ...  the security company told him they decided it's not their place to give someone the boot based on what they do when they're off the clock, assuming of course it's legal.  

As we previously reported ... after Mike made national headlines as the first person in Washington to buy legal pot, his employer demanded he take a drug test and he up and quit because he knew he'd flunk.  But Boyer insisted he was never high at work.

So Mikie accepted the apology and will resume his job Monday as a security guard.  BUT ... he's now so into the marijuana thing, he tells us he'd jump ship in a hot minute if he gets an offer from a pot shop.

It appears Mike will do anything humanly possible to make that firing stick.

Most security guards are losers that don't know how to do anything but sit on their butt. Amazing more don't flunk the drug test.

Boyer would get a "higher" (nice obvious pun intended TMZzzzz) job if he wore a different shirt that didn't SCREAM muthafukkin' stoner, wannabe Jerry Garcia. Plus, doesn't cannabis give people the munchies? He should definitely NOT be using given his obvious bloated look.

Gee, this guy looks like a real catch. His mom must be proud....since he still lives in her house.

Why did this guy get fired in the first place? Weed is now legal there, that would be like getting fired for having a beer on Friday night.

As a current police officer, we all know security guards are wanna be cops, who for some reason, cannot get hired by a police department. It could b current/past drug use, not being able to pass a physical/mental evaluation, poor moral character etc.... Wonder why this yahoo couldn't get hired? Lol

Wow, I'm totally shocked that employers aren't knocking down this guy's door. Looks like a grade-A professional.

You know, the fact that he wants a job so bad at a dispensary suggests that he thinks he can score a job sitting around all day smoking pot. Most dispensaries are totally professional though and know to not mix business with pleasure. There is no one one would hire this incompetent douche.

They just rehired him because he hasn't actually failed a drug test ... yet. Security guards are typically screened and routinely tested for drugs so as soon as he fails, which he will, they can fire him quietly for cause. Dopers are funny.
